Oh, Hello: The P’dcast

Available on Apple Podcasts / Podcasts

Aware that no one needs another celebrity-fronted podcast, the comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney had a better idea. In Oh, Hello: The P’dcast, the duo host as their aging alter egos, Gil Faizon (Kroll) and George St. Geegland (Mulaney), first seen in Kroll’s sketch comedy—Kroll Show—and then perfected a couple of years back on Broadway, in a production titled The Oh, Hello Show. The audio adaptation of their stage run is both surprising and charming. In it, the two characters—each crotchety, old Upper West Siders—set out to produce a hit podcast about Princess Diana’s death, a wink to the many shows out there investigating this or that gruesome event. And it’s in the mispronunciations, antiquated views, and vain pretensions of these stuck-in-their-ways New Yorkers that the show truly shines, delivering major laughs and the sharpest of satire. —Bridget Arsenault
