Watch Us Make Dan Harmon Uncomfortable

This conversation is in partnership with Seeso. #YouGetIt.

People often say that being uncomfortable – in social situations, in one’s own skin, on the planet earth – is where great comedy truly begins. We agree! In this spirit, we teamed up with Splitsider pal Katla McGlynn and wrangled Dan Harmon to shoot an interview promoting his new live-action animated role-playing show, HarmonQuest. Our ultimate goal? To make Dan supremely uncomfortable.

We shot the interview in a walk-in cooler, had him sit on a beer keg for an inordinately long period of time, and asked him some, well, uncomfortable questions. What followed was a series of awkward pauses, bizarre confessions, and a lot of fun. Watch to find out which tattoo Dan would get (and where he would get it), whether he believes in his own hype, and how Dan wrote the best Oscars ever.


Be sure to look out for HarmonQuest on Seeso (which is launching its private beta in December – sign up for updates here!). The show is a comedic journey into the world of fantasy roleplaying with Dan Harmon and his comedian companions. Part live-action, part animated, HarmonQuest stars Dan (Harmon), Spencer Crittenden, Jeff B. Davis, and Erin McGathy, along with an assortment of special guest appearances including Paul F. Tompkins, Chelsea Peretti, Kumail Nanjiani, and many more.
