Dance, Monkey!: Rob Crean

We put a visiting comic on the hot seat
By SARA FAITH ALTERMAN  |  February 10, 2009

Rob Crean

What's the one homy touch that the Obamas are sure to bring to the White House?
Probably a hope chest — possibly with a glass cover, since I know the president is a fan of transparency.

What's your secret talent?
For about four years I was a semi-professional bear fighter. People always ask me, "What do you mean, semi-professional bear fighter?" To which I respond, "Well, did I get paid to fight bears? Uh, yeah. Did I make a living fighting bears? Not even close."

Who's on your top 10 list of predicted biggest douchebags of 2009?
That band Sigur Rós for starters. And NPR talk-show host Tom Ashbrook has to be on there. I heard he threatened to slap Betty White in the mouth.

You kind of love that Beyoncé song, don't you?
Love it? I like it! That's why I put a ring on it. I'm a huge Beyoncé fan. I once had a drunken jilted lover loudly sing the song "Irreplaceable" at me in front of my entire work holiday party.

What do your fancy pants look like, fancy-pants?
They are as bright as the sun and as soft as a mother's kiss. Dry-clean only.

  •   REVIEW: SPREAD  |  August 19, 2009
    If only there were some way to watch a con-artist houseboy give his cougar sugar mama a squirming reach-around, charm the pants off a candy-necklace string of countless empty-eyed Hollywood stick figures, lose his heart to an untouchable social chameleon, and, in the process, find himself .
  •   NORTHERN EXPOSURE  |  July 29, 2009
    While New York is grittier, Los Angeles juicier, and Boston is wicked smahter, for some odd reason it is Montreal that, for two weeks every summer, becomes the epicenter of the comedy universe.

  •   BEAT THE TWEET  |  July 22, 2009
    Warm weather is supposed to be accessorized by lackaday, by a breezy sensibility best enjoyed with a frosty tall boy in one hand, the sloppy product of a back-yard barbecue in the other. Instead, I find myself struggling to balance my beer between my knees and my overstocked paper plate on my thigh as I furiously poke at my BlackBerry.
  •   INTERVIEW: KRISTEN SCHAAL  |  June 24, 2009
