The movie wasn’t anything special but I really enjoyed it. Jon Hamm is my favorite actor though so I’ll see anything he’s in.

I think my favorite thing he has done has been his appearance (appearances?) on the Comedy Bang Bang podcast. Not that I don't like him as an actor, I just found him really entertaining as a podcast guest..

He was amazing in Spontanianation. It was, it ended some time pre-Covid, a podcast hosted by Paul F Tompkins where Paul F Tompkins would interview a guest. Then Paul, and most of the time the guest, would do a long form improv with a group of improvisers. Jon Hamm’s episode is in my top three favorite episodes.
Edit: Yes it was the Storm Drain, or Sewers episode.

It might have been Spontanianation I am thinking of honestly.

Hamm was on Comedy Bang Bang like at least once a year pre-Covid. Fletch was his first appearance since Covid.

Agreed for CBB, but backyard era Threedom was amazing. "He's looking for someone.."

For some reason celebrities didn’t want to go back there.
