Paul Rivas interviews Jim VanBlaricum on passing the California bar exam and moving to New York the next day, passing the New York bar exam years later but never practicing law, his Tin Tin superfandom, his uncle's James Bond submarine, watching the best Christmas movie ever 200 times, walking into strangers' homes in Isla Vista and drinking their beer as a Santa Barbara high schooler, co-hosting the Crappy Cinema Council comedy show in Brooklyn, comedians you've never heard of, his creative process as a stand-up comic, how to become a comedian, Murtaugh jokes, the early 1990s Santa Barbara pipe bomb craze, dressing up as an analrapist for Halloween, life in the best city in the world, and being old enough to give and receive advice.
