"I Sold Weed Cookies to Famous Comedians"
What was it like to be the in-house weed cookie dealer at Upright Citizens Brigade in NYC during the legendary improv theater's glory days? Our guest John Flynn tells all in his new memoir Baked!—and we give him credit for providing creative inspiration to a cultural institution that launched the careers of many of today's top comedic talents. Founded in 2004 by Matt Besser, Amy Poehler, Ian Roberts, Matt Walsh, Adam McKay, Rick Roman, Horatio Sanz and Drew Franklin, the theater and school helped launch the careers of Paul Scheer, ,Kate McKinnon, Jon Gabrus, Aubrey Plaza, Rob Corddry, Rob Riggle, , Ed Helms, Aubrey Plaza, Zach Woods, Nicole Byer, Bobby Moynihan, Andrew Daly, Jason Mantzoukas, Nick Kroll, Donald Glover, Ben Schwartz, Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson (Broad City), Chris Gerhard and many, many others. From baking his first batch of THC-infused treats to help fund his musical tribute to the movie Showgirls, to a run-in with FedEx that became the moment his weed cookie empire crumbled, John shares the highs (and occasional lows) of a very sweet ride.
