  • THE PLUG: Don't miss Todd Barry performing at Caroline's TONIGHT @ 9:30PM through SUN, MAY 23 | Tickets
  • Q&A: Apiary bro-han Michael Grinspan (Caroline's blog) caught up with Todd for a quick few.
    You normally play downtown, more alternative rooms, but this past November you opened for Ricky Gervais at Carnegie Hall. How was it to perform in such a different (and legendary) setting?
    TB: I actually play all over New York, not just downtown, but I do often play downtown, because I live downtown. I've been lucky enough to do Carnegie Hall twice; the first time was with Sarah Silverman. It's sort of surreal, but once I was on stage, it was more like doing a normal show than I thought. Except that it was in Carnegie Hall.
    You’re a staple of Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim, starring in "Aqua Teen Hunger Force," "Home Movies," and most recently "Squidbillies." Why are Todd Barry and Adult Swim such a good match?
    TB: I think because they give me work and I want the work. The nice thing about doing animation is that once they use you, they'll just call you in again and again, without having to audition. Last time I was in Atlanta, I wrote to Adult Swim -- their offices are down there -- to let them know I was in town. The next thing I knew I was doing the voice of "Bird #2" on Aqua Teen.
    In 2008 you took a bit of departure from comedy to star in the film "The Wrestler." Did the success of that movie surprise you? Does it make you want to take on more dramatic parts?
    TB: I had a feeling it would do well, but I certainly didn't anticipate the attention it got. I'd be up for a more dramatic role, as long as I don't end up embarrassing myself.
    Does the movie's success make you want to wrestle professionally?
    Yes. I'm actually looking into it. I think I'd be a natural.

-- Don't miss Todd Barry headlining at Carolines starting THURS, MAY 20 @ 9:30PM. He'll be performing through SUN, MAY 23.

Addendum - Does the success of ‘The Wrestler’ make you want to wrestle professionally?
Yes. I'm actually looking into it. I think I'd be a natural.
