As it turns out, Father John Misty crooning singer-songwriter, talented multi-instrumentalist, beard pin-up model, and general gentleman of leisure — is a pretty funny guy. He displayed these comedic (and at times, philosophical) chops during a recent concert in Australia, where he chose to eschew the typical encore format in favor of a question and answer session with the attendees. Some of the many gems you'll find during the 16-minute jamboree: How does sex work? What's the deal with tank tops? Did he really perform in a small New Orleans theatrical production about Neo-Nazis on Easter morning? What does he order at Olive Garden? The answers will make you love J. Tillman even more.
