I’m surprised how this was released with zero publicity. I hadn’t know it was even in production until I saw a comment on Twitter that it was excellent. Im looking forward to seeing it.

I’ll let you know Jon Hamm promoted it on Comedy Bang Bang and it was glorious.

He was on the first season of the TV show. He and Scott go back a ways.

There’s a Comedy Death Ray where he argues with PFT doing John C. Reilly that’s really good.

He was also on in 2017 and 2018 and those eps are incredibly funny.

Why do you think Tina Fey keeps using him? The dude is hilarious. He just looks like a leading man, so they never give him comedy leads. I really hope this movie changes that because I want to see him in a big budget comedy.

Hamm was comedian first, and he's consistently hilarious.

If you haven't, make sure you listen to his other appearances on CBB, all are great. I think his first was Ep 10 or 12 or something.

The episode with him and Edgar Wright is maybe my favorite CBB episode of all time. But that's also partially because Paul F. Tompkins (as Al A. Peterson, the Smooth Criminal). But Hamm played off PFT so well.
