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.
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.
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."
