Neal Brennan Talks About The Approval Matrix, Comedy Kale and Why Journalists are Hypocrites

Neal Brennan—a standup veteran, writer, director of Inside Amy Schumer, and co-creator of Chapelle's Show—has now taken on yet another venture: he's the host of Sundance's new show The Approval Matrix. Currently in its third week, the show is based on the much-loved back page of New York Magazine, which grades pop culture topics on a scale of “brilliant to despicable,” and “low-brow to high-brow.” With only three episodes under his belt, Brennan has already managed to offend masses, calling Louie C.K. “the kale of comedy” and stating that he believes “affirmative action has no place in art.” Neal sat down with us to discuss his new job, his comments about kale, and why he thinks journalists are hypocrites (uh-oh).
