Chris Gethard is no stranger to having to be scrappy, truly making artisanal lemonade out of whatever lemons he found lying around the ground. He did so with The Chris Gethard Show’s rise from public access to actual cable TV. So, at a time where live comedy has been limited in such an absurd way, Gethard mobilized immediately by putting on two recurring livestream shows that are essentially two big components of TCGS. Planet Scum Live has Gethard chat with his favorite comedy folks, but always with some sort of twist. Comedy hell-raisers Helltrap Nightmare brought Gethard up to speed on their high-level video art hijinks, and then Bobby Moynihan went down a deep rabbit hole on the least-favorite Star Wars characters, with a reserved Lennon Parham judging them the whole time. Gethard also lets more chaos reign with a Friday showcase show that, like his recent return to public access with Chris Gethard Presents, allows his favorite comedians to do whatever the hell they want (i.e., Mary Houlihan and Nick Naney doing a live read of a spec Sopranos script). Wednesdays (Planet Scum Live) and Fridays (Comedy Showcase) at 7 PM PT/10PM ET
