Ben Schwartz Talks About the Old Days

Ben Schwartz started his career as a page for the Letterman Show and look at him now.  Back in the day he would submit jokes and if one got on, that would mean a shiny $75.  If nothing got on, and you listened very very closely, you’d hear a very strange shout come from the hidden depths of the theater.  Working for Letterman prepped him so well, that when he moved to LA he landed a pilot, a movie, and a job writing for the Oscars all in his first month.

Fast forward and next thing you know, Ben is doing Parks and Recreation and House of Lies.
