Michael Ian Black followed in the footsteps of other comedians such as Louis C.K., Aziz Ansari and Rob Delaney this weekend by participating in a Reddit AMA. The AMA stands for “ask me anything” and, with comedians in particular, it has a proclivity to provide some great humor.
In honor of his new, “America, You Sexy Bitch: A Love Letter to Freedom” book that’s set to hit shelves and Kindles, Black invited the Internet to ask him anything. A picture of him sleeping in the New Orleans airport surfaced, questions concerning Black’s former shows Michael and Michael have Issues and Stella were posed, and a story told of a guy who got laid because a drunk chick thought he was Black’s doppleganger.
“I just wanted to thank you for getting me laid once. Some drunk girl said I looked like you. Thanks. By the way, I look nothing like you sir,” said the lucky participant.
Black responded: “Cool, can I smell your finger?”
Propositions about a Wet Hot American Summer sequel were tossed around humorously but unanswered, as were other inquiries into the progress of the DVD release of the old NBC show Ed.
For now MIB hosts a podcast with former Ed star Tom Cavanagh named Mike and Tom Eat Snacks. Last year he released the Comedy Central stand-up special Very Famous. You can follow him on Twitter @michaelianblack
