ScreenTalk Short: David McPhail

Interview – 2018

Comedy legend David McPhail made Kiwis laugh with pioneering sketch show A Week of It. In this ScreenTalk Short, he talks about the rush of finishing A Week of It just before it went to air, making satire, the freedom he and longtime partner in crime Jon Gadsby had on their show McPhail and Gadsby, making Letter to Blanchy on location, network panic over Seven Periods with Mr Gormsby, and playing a spandex-clad hero. 

The full version of this interview was first uploaded on 21 December 2009.
