Introducing: Funny Cuz It's True with Elyse Myers
00:41:24

If you are enjoying Podcrushed, there’s another series that we just know you’re going to love.

 

After first going viral on TikTok by telling the story of how she got stuck buying 100 tacos on a first date, Elyse Myers now has millions of eyeballs watching her videos daily. Each week on Funny Cuz It’s True, Elyse sits down with her favorite creators, friends and comedians to find the stories that have stuck with them and changed their lives in small ways. She wants to know how they handled these situations and learned to laugh about them years later.  

 

In this episode, legendary director, writer, and actor Paul Feig joins Elyse to talk about Elyse’s first kiss, and Paul's own awkward romances (like the ones that inspired his show "Freaks and Geeks”). Plus, Paul shares his experiences from “The Office.”
