This Vanity Fair interview with Bob Odenkirk and David Cross (who have teamed up again after a decade to create a new sitcom for HBO titled David’s Situation) just reinforces my conviction that these two guys are among the funniest people working in the world today:
David: If we did a sketch show and we lived in Flint, Michigan, I’m sure that a lot of our observations would be about the dying auto industry. We live and work and breathe in Hollywood. Bob’s wife is a manager, and his son is the star of Cake.
VF: Cake? What’s that?
David: It’s a reality show.
VF: I’ve never heard of it.
David: It’s about who can eat the most cake in five years.
VF: Bob, you must be very proud of your son.
Bob: Well, he’s not winning.
