Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Amen. That was recorded just yesterday at the funny are dis studios in Hollywood where I visited to chat with Jonathan van Ness and Aaron Gibson the series creator and director I asked fan as how making time for gay of thrones works logistically with all his commitments for queer eye season. Seven was the last season. I was in Atlanta shooting queer eye. So I would shoot queer eye Tuesday through Friday and then get on a plane, and then come here do gay of thrones get back on the plane, go back to Atlanta. And now this time I have since moved to New York. And so Sunday mornings, I get up and I pop on a plane, I get here, and then I come onto show with everyone. And then I go home, and well, then I pitch all my jokes before everyone else gets pitch their jokes, which is really nice to me. So never else could stay up till midnight. And then I tap out at nine and like, oh my God. I'm so tired, which is the joke. Really? I am. We need you to be amazing on camera dies you need to go to bed. What is it? Like when you guys are watching it is it like being Theodore everybody's talking back to the screen like, there's just constant banter. You making knows what does it sound. Like this year. We have a new method where we're doing like one of our people will yell out the scene number. So it's like a scene one seemed to you because we're all kind of writing while we're watching it. So there is some yelling the screen usually for me. But we turn the lights off we have snacks. And we right. We really are you there's a lot of typing are other tradition is that we always have ten degrees. We've had ten greens every single year and Chuck. Not that. There are so many recaps of game of thrones. And what's amazing to me is how quick and how thorough they are? And when you're thinking about how you were going to both recap an episode, and then do something. That's funny. How do you figure out? What is I? Because is it important that you get the story. Right. I and then add the jokes are what do they come in? I think it's always about serving the purpose of how Jonathan has regurgitated this show. So in my mind is always funny. I, but I do want this to be a cheat sheet for people who maybe don't watch game of thrones. And maybe want to not feel like they're an outcast in society at work. So they do know what's going on. But first and foremost, it's about making this show funny, and allowing Jonathan to shine his very specific and hilarious light on a show. That is the most macabre thing on TV. The other thing that you guys seem to be really intentional about is making sure that you have. Most latest pop culture references possible. So you just did an episode where you have a mayor Pete reference. There's a reference to the Boeing seven thirty seven max is it always like what happened that day that we can incorporate how do you think about what is and is not funny or worth, including well, I have to say, you know, in in the episode from last week, you know, it was all about Martina Hingis. This battle had more ups and downs than Martinez. Hang.
