Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Aug 18, 2020

Louie Anderson moves me. When I watch him play Christine Baskets on the FX series Baskets, I literally put my hand to my heart. The humanity he conveys is almost too much. It's beautiful.

And he moves me to tears -- of joy and laughter! He's so funny and it shows as we get to know each other for the first time.

There's a little backstory here:

Last summer I shared a video clip on Instagram of my "Dream Guests." Louie, of course, was on my list. Louie saw it and said, "I'd love to be on your show!"

Long story short: It took a full year. But finally! He's on the show.

And all I can tell you is this: I KNEW IT. I KNEW he'd be a dream guest.

Join us as we genuinely talk and laugh and get into things like:

  • teasing
  • friendship
  • family
  • joy
  • Baskets
  • Christine Baskets
  • Chip Baskets
