Jason Reich: The FishbowlDC Interview

reichfishbowl2.jpgSay hello to Jason Reich, editor of the comedy news site 23/6. Before joining 23/6, he spent six years as a writer with The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

What word do you routinely misspell? Recommendation. I always want to put two C’s in it. So anyone who asks me for one is going to be severely disappointed.

What’s the name of your cell phone ring? It’s called “24″ because it’s an audio sample from the TV show of the telephone ring at CTU headquarters. You know … bip-bip-BEEE-boop.

What time did you get up this morning? 7:00 am. I hit snooze. Then I got up again at 7:09. Then 7:18, 7:27, 7:36 and 7:45.

When did you last cry, and why? A few minutes ago, after reading this list of questions.

How many e-mails a do you receive a day, roughly? Maybe 100? I would say 20-30 of them are pitches and the rest of them are the staff writing dirty jokes back and forth to each other.

What’s your favorite letter? Everyone knows K is the funniest letter.
