You Had To Be There #101: Moshe Kasher


This week, Sara and Nikki declassify the events surrounding last week’s torrent of celebrity encounters, codenamed “Zero Dark Flirty”. Comic Moshe Kasher (@moshekasher, The Champs podcast) barely makes it past MTV’s team of New World Order security guards in time to plug his shows at Carolines with Natasha Leggero this very weekend and reminisce about his last barfight. Moshe, whose dark and hilarious memoir Kasher in the Rye was published last year, has been cutting his way through the jungle of the LA TV biz and he comes armed with tales of treacherous table-reads and wise words for tackling rampant self-doubt. The gang talks a little pee about Nikki’s documented love for Fitzdog Radio, Sara’s documented love for Nikki, and Moshe’s dreams coming true vis-à-vis those Carolines shows (which, by the way, you should go to).

Hark: Pope Francis has decreed that you, dear sinner, should check out Nikki & Sara LIVE every Tuesday at 11pm/10c on MTV. It will make you laugh and save your soul.
