Steve Interview:http://www.avclub.com/chicago/articles/ ... ant,81297/
AVC: What’s the process like when you’re working with Ricky? Do you hole up in an office from nine to five?
SM: Pretty much, yeah. It’s not quite 9 to 5, but it is normally a daily meet-up. But we’ve had various things distracting us in different directions, I was on tour for three months, and he had lots of things going on. So it’s not quite as set-in-stone as it used to be, but when we both have time we will sort of meet up, and it’s lots of talking, lots of endless sort of sharing of anecdotes and observations, and that sort of thing.
AVC: The projects you’ve done seem to be things you really like, or rather things that are born from passion. Do you think that’s true? Do you really like working with Karl?
SM: Do I like Karl? Definitely, of course, absolutely. He’s unique, and so people are constantly baffled as to whether that’s really him or is it all part of an elaborate trick. Is he really an actor called Graham, which is what someone posted online once, which really annoyed Karl. But as Ricky and I have often said, if we were writing Karl, we just wouldn’t come up with some of the bullshit that he comes out with—it’s just so out-there that even as comedians we’d be like, “No one is going to buy this,” and he is just remarkable. But, again, I haven’t seen him as often as I’d like, because he’s been off traveling the world for his various projects. So, it’s sort of the pressures, as you get more successful the stuff that used to happen—just sitting around in a room chewing the fat—is sort of harder to find time for unfortunately.
Also, Steve was on Conan last night, but I can't seem to find any video yet. It should pop up soon though.
