Dan Swimer • Films To Be Buried With with Brett Goldstein #75
LOOK OUT! It’s only Films To Be Buried With! Join your host Brett Goldstein as he talks life, death, love and the universe with behind the scenes comedy writer, heavy hitter and multiple hat wearer DAN SWIMER!
A super damn fine one this week folks, as Brett sits down with Dan to get down deep into the heart of this whole comedy and cinema malarkey. Between them, they cover a good amount of ground and it’s a lovely one to get to know Dan and his many ins and outs. From his co-writing with Simon Amstell in various form, to working with Brett a while back there, to being the ‘JD Sallinger of comedy”, the madness of standup comedy and processes therein, living in LA, Sacha Baron Cohen, being a bad car driver, field cults, the collateral damage of the ‘disturbing kid film’ genre, witches, Stallone, being a sensitive dad, the two ingredients to ensure tears, a round of applause for Emma Thompson, flight rules, his wife and a certain earlier film role, Uncle Joe’s big box o’ VHS tapes, and all manner of other greatness. ENJOY BRETT AND DAN!
