We love catching up with old friends from Almost Live, which aired original episodes on KING 5 from 1984 - 1999, with reruns still airing on Saturday nights, following Saturday Night Live. We see Steve Wilson and Nancy Guppy regularly (Steve is New Day's director, while Nancy joins us every other week with a look at weekend happenings). We recently welcomed Pat Cashman to the show and watch Joel McHale on the NBC comedy Community, which returns with new episodes on Friday, October 19 at 8:30pm.

Today, we caught up with Brooks McBeth, who, like Joel McHale, started as an intern before joining the cast. You can catch Brooks in comedy clubs, on TV commercials and other shows (he was a writer for Mad TV). Last week, he performed on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

Brooks will perform Saturday,September 22 at Auburn Avenue Theater. Click here for more information.
