Alan Havey and Night After Night
If you saw this week's episode of Louis CK's astounding and hilarious FX series Louie, you saw Alan Havey in action. You might have seen him somewhere before, you might not have, but if he was taking up any room in the back of your head it was probably because of his 90's late night talk show on the Comedy Channel. Comedy Channel was what became Comedy Central, but in those days it was centered almost entirely around stand up comedians and, frequently, the process behind how they did their thing. Watching Havey's show now, you see that he was doing stuff that would probably never make it on the air now. Very off the cuff, under the radar, and extemporaneous, it might have been a forerunner of the thing we now call podcasts.
