This isn't science. Not today. It's art — in this case, the sly performance of a young comedian who is accosted backstage by not-so-nice "fans." But he gets free (wait for this, it comes a few minutes in) by using his pointer finger. I was enchanted.

In 2011, Marc headed north to Santa Barbara to sit with one of the giants of comedy, Jonathan Winters. At 85, he was still firing on all cylinders, creating characters on the spot and recalling old improv bits from decades ago. They discuss his storied career in comedy, film and art. It’s the history of modern comedy in one interview.

For comedian Dave Hill, the electric guitar is more than an onstage prop. Wailing solos are a hallmark of his stand-up act – and his career with indie bands like Valley Lodge, Cobra Verde and Diamondsnake (Moby’s metal band). He joined us in The Greene Space with his shred-tastic brand of comedy – and a new book of essays called Tasteful Nudes.

Up-and-coming comedian Tig Notaro wasn't much of a household name until a few weeks ago, when South by Southwest included her on the list of comedians to perform at the festival this week. At the time, she was the only female comedian chosen by SXSW.

We talked with Notaro on Thursday about gearing up for SXSW and the challenges of being a female comedian.
