How to live the dream in both comedy and comic books [Ep #68]
Daniel Kibblesmith is living a comedy geek's dream, writing for both Stephen Colbert's Late Show and Marvel Comics. But don't bother trying to kidnap him and take his jobs, because careers just don't work that way (believe us, we inquired).
In this episode of The Fandom Files, Kibblesmith walks us through his very varied and busy career, which took him from working at Groupon to writing comics, late-night jokes, and his own books, including the acclaimed Santa's Husband, which is exactly what it sounds like. Maybe you won't learn how to emulate his career, exactly, but you'll see what kind of journey it takes to get there.
We also talk to fans about what they're angry about this week (including bugs in Annihilation and movies with medical errors) and get swept away in an Agent Carter-Indiana Jones fanfiction.
