Chris Gethard Shares Greatest Yearbook Entry Ever

Chris Gethard shared his yearbook photo and quote on Conan Tuesday night which resulted in many giggles, much love, and a battle with Andy over the worth of Gethard's Optimus Prime quote.

Diddy Makes Triumphant Return to ‘The Chris Gethard Show’

The Chris Gethard Show may have moved to a cable (albeit a very fringe cable) network, but it still maintains the quirky authenticity, and strange, anything-goes antics from its UCB Chelsea stage days.
