I have always enjoyed Elyse's Instagram, "xxxx, I'm glad you asked," "I'd love to tell you, "reels. She has a wonderful story, a beautiful outlook, & a delightful voice. I also enjoy the post interview voice over, more info, more context.

Funny Cuz it's True is the podcast I've always needed in my life. Elyse is just as relatable and hilarious as she is on TT.

Description

Hello, and welcome to my podcast. I first went viral on TikTok after telling the story of how I got stuck buying 100 tacos on a first date. Since then, it’s been a wild and crazy ride. I now have millions of eyeballs watching my videos on a daily basis (which is just a terrifying number of eyeballs, honestly).

Each week on my podcast Funny Cuz It’s True, I’ll be sitting down with my favorite creators, friends and comedians to find the stories that have stuck with them and changed their lives in small ways. Not so funny moments that have become funny over time. I want to know how they handled these situations and learned to laugh about them years later. How do they do it? Great question, I’d love to tell you (but you have to listen to find out). 


Episode Date
Being Uncomfortable (with Kevin Jonas)
1632

I can’t stop thinking about how Kevin Jonas is on my podcast all because I spilled some butter on fancy pants. It’s crazy. While this situation seems straight out of a fantasy, Kevin and I have a really grounded conversation about growing up in a tight-knit family, and how he learned to break the people-pleasing habit. He also shares why he thinks the Jonas Brothers’ upcoming album will be their best one yet.

Deconstructing Memes (with Penn Badgley)
2076

Penn Badgley is warm, kind, and incredibly thoughtful – fortunately, the exact opposite of his character in the Netflix series “You.” As someone who’s been acting since he was a child, Penn shares his views on Hollywood and what it means to be an actor. He also talks about why he initially turned down the role of Dan Humphrey in “Gossip Girl” and discusses the similarities between Dan and Joe from “You.”

Starting a TikTok Trend (with Moses Storm)
2271

Moses Storm has led a crazy life. The comedian and actor tells me about growing up in his family’s “failed” cult, living in a bus with his five siblings, and eventually meeting his hero Conan O’Brien on a rooftop that smelled like tapas. We also talk about the making of his first comedy special, “Trash White,” which has his fingerprints all over it – literally.

One of My Faves: Hitting Singles (with Office Ladies)

I thought I peaked when they played my song “Whispers in the Breakroom” on their podcast. But oh no. It just got better. Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer (aaaaah!!!), The Office Ladies, are my very special guests this week. They tell me about becoming friends over a partition, the hard years before their big break, and why they won’t stop talking about their time on “The Office.” Plus, Jenna shares a hot tip on how to meet celebrities at fancy events.

One of My Faves: Overthinking My First Talent Show (with Lance Bass)
2759

Please enjoy this encore episode of one of my favorite conversations. I did a podcast with my childhood crush and favorite member of NSYNC, and only freaked out a few times. The incredible Lance Bass tells me about growing up while performing with NSYNC. As a closeted teen, Lance had to hide a lot about himself. But no longer – Lance lives proudly as his true self with his husband and two children. Plus, he invites me to Disney World and all I can think about is eating a turkey leg.

Making You Look (with Meghan Trainor)
2651

When I met Meghan Trainor, I found out she mixes her own songs on top of writing, performing, and generally being amazing. What you don’t see behind her greatest hits is just how hard she’s worked. Meghan talks about how she went from performing in a cover band with her family to being world famous. We also chatted about filming an acapella version of “Made You Look” together, which is out now! Watch it here.

Stressing in My Flesh Suit (with Mike Birbiglia)
2499

Mike Birbiglia’s stories about his life are the epitome of “funny ‘cuz they’re true.” He joins me to talk about his new Broadway show “The Old Man and The Pool,” and how he makes a show about death and mortality funny. Mike gets into his creative process around joke writing, like how he got underneath the meaning behind a joke about his car accident and a drunk driver, and also tells me why he thinks performing comedy is like stripping.

Finding My Superpower (with Atsuko Okatsuka)
2019

Atsuko Okatsuka once did stand-up during an earthquake – but that’s not even the craziest thing that’s happened in her life. Atsuko talks to me about turning the things that made her feel different as a kid into superpowers. Plus, she explains why she thinks comedy is a service, getting kicked out of church choir, and her upcoming HBO special “The Intruder.”

Podcrushed: Penn Badgley Interviews Elyse Myers
3493

On this special episode, Penn Badgley interviews me on his new podcast Podcrushed! Podcrushed explores the heartbreak, anxiety and self-discovery of being a teenager. I sat down with Penn and his co-hosts Nava and Sophie and shared the real story behind the taco date, how I knew Jonas was different from all the other men I dated, and what I would say to ‘12-year-old Elyse’ today.

Listen to Podcrushed every Wednesday on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, or wherever you listen.

Finding Joy (with Jonathan Van Ness)
2702

When I think about joy, nobody embodies it better than Jonathan Van Ness. From the perfect oat milk latte to gymnastics, JVN shares what’s bringing them happiness – and how it gives them confidence. We also have a wild conversation about their very first vodka-drinking, mullet-wearing client and their fangirl moment with Simone Biles.

Falling In Love Again (with Kaitlyn Bristowe)
2109

Kaitlyn is my good friend and appeared on the Bachelor as a contestant before starring as a Bachelorette herself. Believe it or not, she was the very first person I interviewed for this podcast, so you might be able to hear just how nervous I was. We talk about those kinds of first loves you never really forget – for good and for bad. It’s basically an unexpected therapy session. Plus, we take some wisdom from the Kardashians.

Sketch(ing) Comedy (with Kevin Nealon)
2267

I grew up watching Kevin Nealon on SNL, and now he’s on my podcast. Are you joking??? Along with being an incredible comedian, Kevin tells me about his lifelong passion for drawing. His new book “I Exaggerate: My Brushes with Fame” features stories about celebrities he’s met, accompanied by caricatures he’s drawn of them. Kevin even gives me a peek at what my caricature would look like. Plus, he shares the origins of Hans & Franz and why his current show might be the most “breathtaking” work he’s ever done.

Remembering the First Time I Was Funny (with Rachel Bloom)
2003

If my life was a musical comedy, I'd ask Rachel Bloom to write, direct, AND star in it. The actress, singer/songwriter, and comedian tells me about her quest to make musical comedy actually funny (like, literally laugh-out-loud funny), dealing with ADHD, and what it’s like being a female comedian.

Manifesting My Magical Powers (with Tristen Winger)
2591

There are an unbelievable amount of things actor Tristen Winger and I have in common – our love for music, our interest in engineering, our early graduation from high school, and losing our cool in front of our biggest idols. But something that really stuck out to me when I talked to the "Insecure" and "So Help Me Todd" actor was his ability to make his dreams come true through manifestation.

Overthinking My First Kiss (with Paul Feig)
2436

Legendary director, writer, and actor Paul Feig joins me for our very first episode. Note to listeners: he’s in a seven-piece suit, and I’m in sweatpants. It’s great. You'll hear all about my 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.” I learn the creative process doesn’t really get easier, even after decades in the industry.

Hi, I’m Elyse Myers. Welcome to my podcast.
159

You may recognize my face from the Internet. Maybe you’ve heard my stories about the funny but unbelievable things that have happened to me. Maybe you can relate? (If you can’t relate, just say you do so I feel better.)

Well, I have a new podcast. It’s called Funny Cuz It’s True. It has 100% less emojis than my stories usually do, but I get to talk to other comedians, pop culture icons, and people I find really funny, and it’s pretty wild! It’ll be out October 5, brought to you by Powderkeg Media and Lemonada Media.
