The Chris Gethard has finished and so we have put together this tribute episode of some of the many acts that appeared on the show. I only discovered the show last year after hearing Chris on another podcast but I quickly fell for it and soon Elwood and I would watch it every morning whilst eating our toast (handily they uploaded every episode to YouTube).
There was nothing fake about the Chris Gethard show, it was DIY punk and most of all it was fun that never aimed to hurt but rather rejoice in what makes us feel different from the rest of society. From the human fish’s quest to understand the world of men to Connor Ratliffs attempt to be president based on his age alone I have loved watching something so pure in its attempt to bring joy to people on a Wednesday night, and the musical guests were always superb.
The decision to end the show is certainly justified, there is no reason to force it if you don’t feel you can bring the same energy that the show required. Chris has a podcast called Beautiful Anonymous and it’s well worth a listen, he seems really excited with it and we wish him all the best. Goodbye TCGS and thank you.
