"Kill A Man With Dat Ass" (w/ Atsuko Okatsuka)
Let's go, Atsuko! And by "let's go" we mean "THANK YOU" for being on this episode of Las Cultch with Matt & Bowen. What a time it is! Discussed: being in an Android-iPhone relationship, centering Jonah Hill, Atsuko's mentor and director Tig Notaro, The White Lotus and Big Italian Emotion, funeral culture in the east vs. west, having "range" vs. being "singular", portraying sing-talky villains, "crossover culture" in the form of a Snoop Dogg and Red Hot Chili Peppers concert, Pop Up Video, the stigma and anxiety around the words "Disney adult", how the Ticketmaster of it all is a "country-pop problem", finding love and friendship, and sweepstakes culture being fake as hell. Also, Atsuko describes cultivating her incredible HBO comedy special The Intruder, her colorful and vibrant aesthetic, working with Tig and Mike Birbiglia to bring the story of The Intruder to life, and being responsible for the phenomenon that is "The Drop". You can watch The Intruder NOW on HBO via HBO Max and you absolutely SHOULD. What a star! xo
