Spotlight on Luke Schwartz

Before you watch this video:

Please note that there is mature content (i.e. swearing). Those who are sensitive, you have been warned!

To those who are pursuing sincere journalistic careers, I'm sorry for this "atrocities" of an interview. I'm not even calling it an interview because I had a seriously difficult time keeping my yapper shut. I couldn't help but giggle uncontrollably a couple of times. So, without further ado, here's the introduction to the conversation:

Snow falls gently outside the window as Luke Schwartz and I sit down to do this interview on a lazy Brooklyn day. Anyone that has ever met Luke knows that there isn't any one person like him. He's dry, literal and forthright not only in the context of his standup, but also in his daily speech. He picks up on everything you say and hits you back with a witty retort. It's fun, to say the least, to talk with him, as you can see in this collection of clips from our "interview." He's going to be performing at our February 5th show, along with 2 other comedians. This is the first time the HDC has ever presented standup comedy, and I think its an excellent addition to our repertoire.

The video is about 6 minutes of clips strung together, and the track used is "Vache" by Venetian Snares. (A personal favorite of Luke's)
