Hi John, thanks for doing this AMA! I first want to say that you deserve an Emmy for your portrayl of Dr. Steven Brule. He is one of the best developed and most layered characters in television history dating back seven years now to the Tim & Eric Show. I also think its amongst the funniest shows of all time! Now for my questions:

  1. I noticed in Boogie Nights your character wrote awful poems like this one and they seemed shockingly similar to the poems Brule recites at the beginning of each episode of Check it Out . So did your Boogie Nights poems inspire the Brule poems?

  2. We have all noticed Brule's, shall we say...mental decline over the last seven years from a kind of bumbling but coherent special segment host to a man who can no longer pronounce words, no longer seems to be aware of where he is at all times, vomits at even the hint of movement and this season, appears to be developing a split personality. What's causing this? My wife thinks it's all the poison Doris fed him over the years, which seems likely, so is it that, something else or just the way you (or Tim & Eric) felt Brule was developing?

  3. Can you share anything about what happens off camera after the awkward guest interviews you conduct, like the one with "Dr. Jimmy Brungus." Do they ever ask if you are for real? Do they get angry, confused or just walk out sometimes?

  4. Can you tell us if there will be a season four? I'm sure I could watch the first three seasons and be happy for the rest of my life, but considering it takes two seasons to fill up a Bree-V-Bre, one more season would be great!

What do you think is the best song you've ever written? If you can't choose one, I'm curious what your top 3/favorites are.
