Professor Firstdraft’s GOODTIME SCRIPTORIUM

Dispatches from the far reaches of the WGF.

Ben Edlund at GENRE SMASH!

by

On July 15, 2014, the hilarious and diabolically brilliant television writer Ben Edlund joined us at the NerdMelt Showroom. We chatted about his work as a writer on shows like ANGEL and SUPERNATURAL and the upcoming GOTHAM, his childhood habit of wearing a leisure suit, his band (Ghost Tyger and Friends), and a ton of other wonderful stuff.

Highlights:

  • Ben’s description of how he performs as Ghost Tyger
  • Ben’s comparison of Bruce Wayne to Dexter Morgan
  • Ben’s response to a great question about women and LGBT characters on SUPERNATURAL
  • The moment during the Q&A segment when one dude asks Ben what it was like working with “Josh Whedon,” and there’s sort of a palpable tension in the room when everyone wonders whether it’d be rude to correct him

Here’s the podcast in full. Enjoy, folks!
