These two self-involved septuagenarians are the alter egos of comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, who met as undergraduates at Georgetown University and are returning to Washington for "Oh, Hello," a touring show about their two kvetchy characters with a cult following. If this all sounds more like a conversation with your crazy uncle than a comedy show, watch this video.
Okay, so maybe it still sounds like a conversation with your crazy uncle.
The Washington Post interviewed Kroll and Mulaney about their college days as "little drunk goblins," as Mulaney says, and the inspiration for their cantankerous characters — read that story here. But Faizon and St. Geegland also popped in for four quick questions at the end of the interview. A brief Q&A with the men who think there is no such thing as too much tuna:
What do you think of the election so far?
Faizon: It's a joke – Trump. The whole thing's a joke, and it should be in the night-news.
St. Geegland: We get our news from the Jon Daily Show. We're sick of these right-wingers, you know? We just want to smoke grass. We do have a gun — we want to keep one gun. Women should have equal everything, but Gil and I don't want to give up a single inch.
Who will you vote for?
St. Geegland: Lyndon LaRouche. Lyndon's getting the vote.
Faizon: I'm gonna support Bernie, our old friend Bernard. I'm going to say I'm supporting Bernie all the way till the end and then I'll quietly vote for Hillary.
Are you feminists?
St. Geegland: Yes, absolutely. We are such feminists, like — that you're a reporter is great. If we worked with you at WaPo, we'd say pro-feminist things like, 'You're doing a great job, sweetheart,' stuff like that.
Faizon: I have been described consistently as feminine.
St. Geegland: People thought he was June Squibb. He signed autographs as June Squibb.
Have you ever tried Tinder?
Faizon: I'm on Tinder, and I've been telling all the ladies, "Swipe right if you want to date an unlicensed doula."
