Jason Mantzoukas Is Comedy’s Go-To ‘Maniac’

Starting with his breakthrough role as Rafi on ‘The League,’ Jason Mantzoukas has a solid decade under his belt as the comedy world’s favorite “crazy, wild-eyed maniac,” in his words. In this episode, Jason takes us through his prolific career, including hilarious turns in ‘The Dictator,’ ‘Transparent,’ ‘The Good Place’ and so many others. Remarkably, some of his most nuanced work has come as Jay, a horny bisexual tween, on Netflix’s animated hit ‘Big Mouth,’ which premiered its excellent fourth season earlier this month. Finally, Jason reveals the one scene from ‘The League’ that he and Nick Kroll couldn’t get through because they were laughing too hard.
