Q:

What was the weather like? Were the days in the sun better or worse than the colder nights.

A:

Is the animated series of Dr Katz ever coming back for a new season?


Q:

What's the favorite thing you have done so far in your career?

A:

Is a shortage of fuel anticipated in the days before and after the event due to the influx of people?


Q:

It was thick fog pretty well the entire time we were out there. The first day the wind was thankfully quite calm, but the next day it picked up 35 knots from the Northwest, which put it right on our bow and slowed us down even more. The seas were about 4 metres, so just enough to be uncomfortable on a 110 foot ship. The lack of visibility was the worst though. It made a bad situation into a dangerous one.

A:

That's up to YOU!


Q:

Grandma's Boy and Bucky Larson. But I'm proud of all of it. Zero regrets in roles.

A:

The short answer is yes. We are recommending that locals fuel their vehicles up on Tuesday or Wednesday. Central Oregon has 3-4 days of gas on average before needing "restocking". Deliveries for most resources are going to be difficult because of the increased traffic on our roads.

Edit: And there WILL be deliveries. There are plans for influxes with the fuel companies but it's still good to be prepared for longer wait times for fuel.


Q:

Can you talk more about how you did navigation once GPS was dead? I know it's a broad question but there's a lot of us that probably don't know anything about navigation. Did you use a sextant? How did you estimate your lat. and specifically long.? How did you correct for current, tidal forces (if any)? Did you know the formulas by hearth or did you have books? Which ones? Is this "lost" as in no modern technologies or as in "lost" - actually not quite knowing where you are or where you're going?

Stuff like that.

A:

Hello Mr. Katz. Huge fan. Is Home Movies the most underrated animated comedy of all time? Thanks!!


Q:

What is the most fucked up thing that a fan has done/tried to do to you?

A:

We are watching the eclipse in Madras and then driving to PDX to catch a 9 pm flight that night. Normally a 2.5 hour drive, but we'll have about 9 hours. Any guesses as to if we'll make it?

And a BIG THANK YOU to all of you and all the agencies and people working on this!


Q:

I had to study celestial navigation to get my certification, so I was quite familiar with, however even though we had a sextant on board it was useless due to the ever present thick fog. We never saw the sky until we made it the dock.

This was the scariest part of the ordeal. We had to take our last known position before the GPS died and determine a course to St. John's from there based on a magnetic compass. We had no autopilot so that course had to be steered by hand (the poor deckhands were exhausted from steering 12 hours a day). As the wind was varying between NW and SW, we always had to adjust our course accordingly, but in the end it was mostly guess work if you no instrumentation. When we actually were within range of land, we found out we were about 40 miles south of St. John's, so over all , not too bad for a lot of lucky guessing in the fog.

A:

Coach McGuirk was one of the greatest animated characters of all time, counting Betty Boop.


Q:

Someone sent me a Barbie doll once that had my head on it.

A:

You can make it BUT make sure you have food, water, and patience in abundance since there will be increased traffic leaving the area.


Q:

That sounds like quite an ordeal. Did you have any magnetic maps? I know some areas have varying local magnetic fields so you can miss easily by just following the compass and estimating distance traveled by speed.

A:

Hello Dr. Katz. One of my favorite bits from the show was when Ben thought he might have SIDS. After being told what SIDS stood for he said maybe he had GRIDS. Gradual Death Syndrome. My question is: Do you keep in touch with Jon Benjamin? Did you have to do several takes because you kept cracking up?


Q:

How is Gay Robot doing these days?

A:

could you estimate the budget dedicated to apoceclipse over the entire state?


Q:

Yes, variation can have a huge impact on your course to steer based on where you are in the world. The Grand Banks tends to have a variation around 22 degrees Westerly. In the end, we ended up about 40 miles south of intended port of St. John's, which isn't too bad considering we were sailing blind in the fog.

A:

I do keep in touch! He does some work on the Audible series. We did have to do several takes, but unlike most shows the laughter remained in the final broadcast, and was part of the show's identity. Jon Benjamin is one of the two people who have made me faint from laughing so hard.


Q:

He's surviving. Bless his metal gay heart.

A:

I just wanted to say that answering your question would be extremely difficult since it's a partnership between many different city, county, and state agencies. I know we've spent a lot of time and effort planning for this event over the last 2 years!


Q:

Couldn't you duty cycle the GPS, taking readings only once every ten minutes or so to avoid exhausting the batteries? A handheld GPS will work for days on a couple of AA's, so the backup batteries don't seem very capable.

A:

Well, golly - who is the other person? I think you are hilarious so anyone who could make you faint from laughter must be killer.


Q:

I know you're a huge Minnesota sports guy, and as an LA Clippers fan, I'm also an alcoholic. So my question for you is what's the best way to numb the pain?

A:

I've seen some people think that we have infinite dispersed camping in areas like Mt Hood and that can be their fallback. I think lack of parking will self regulate that at least some. But for other areas in Central Oregon are there plans in place to deal with possible overcrowding of natural areas?


Q:

We did try that actually, but the batteries don't just run the GPS, they also run the Radar and VHF/MFHF radios, which we needed on at all times due to lack of visibility and contacting any vessels we were able to spot. This drained the batteries pretty quickly.

A:

Nancy Braudis. She's in the medical profession, and she told me "fainting is just your body's way of telling you you need to breathe.


Q:

I like the Clippers. Bummed Redick is gone.

A:

The public lands folks do have plans in place to help protect our natural areas. I'll tag them to answer any specifics.

Oregon Department of Forestry – /u/MyOregonForests-ODF

Oregon Parks and Recreation Department - /u/oregonstateparks


Q:

Hindsight is always 20/20 but you guys REALLY should have shut off the radar. You were in an Apollo 13 situation and you left on the one thing that draws KILOWATTS of power. KILOWATTS. CONSTANTLY. Radios on receive and GPS systems only use a few watts; they just sip power by comparison. You could probably have had radio and gps for 3 days instead of radio/gps/radar for half of a day and then nothing. And of course everybody else with radar can still see you. And you could have been calling mayday every 5 minutes on the radio which everybody is supposed to monitor. And you could blow SOS on your horn or flasher if you spot somebody.

In fact, now that I think about it, why the fuck didn't you just activate the GMDSS or EPIRB? Or do you guys not carry those systems? And if not, why not? You really couldn't get ANYBODY on HF or MF for 12 hours? Don't you have satellite systems? I mean honestly how the fuck was it that during the 12 hours you HAD power you couldn't reach ANYBODY for help?

*removed USCG references; not a USCG vessel

A:

My wife just can’t get in to Dr. Katz or Home Movies and I think it’s starting to affect our relationship. How can I make her see the light?


Q:

I love you Nick Swardson. I sent you a pint of my blood. Did you get my blood?

A:

Yes. We will have our Amateur Radio Emergency Services folks working alongside us.


Q:

We needed the radar because we were in thick fog for three days and in a major North American shipping lane and an area prone to iceburgs.

We did carry EPIRBS, but those were a last resort. As we still had a working engine and a general direction of where we were going, the captain didn't feel we needed to set them off at that time.

We were able to contact a couple passing ships (thanks to the radar) who relayed our situation to the Coast Guard and our company. The company sent out another ship to meet us roughly 50 miles off the coast and they were able to guide us back to St. John's.

A:

Withhold your affection.


Q:

Copy that. Got it right here. Chugging it.

A:

We have a network of HAM Radio Operators in Jefferson County that will be involved at our Emergency Operations Center and at their homes to give us situational awareness of traffic and other issues.


Q:

Did you think about cannibalism at all?

A:

Who is your favorite comedian, or which one inspired you most to do comedy?


Q:

What's the most effective way to mask the sound of a fart?

A:

are you expecting people to pull over, stopping traffic during the event...on freeways and surface streets alike?


Q:

It was tempting, especially when we started running out of stale cookies to eat, but thankfully we made it home before anyone lost an arm.

A:

Dom Irrera, and the late Ronnie Shakes!

Getting laughs is what inspired me.


Q:

Yell "fire"

A:

People will naturally want to do that. Oregon Department of Transportation – /u/ODOT-Official will have teams stationed along our highways to make sure that traffics keeps moving to avoid any dangerous situations.


Q:

What was the reaction when everyone saw land again? Was there celebration like in the movies or was everyone too exhausted/tired/hungry?

A:

You are a national treasure, Katz. Is there any way we can download/own your old songs?


Q:

Hey Nick! Thanks for doing this. You've worked a lot with Adam Sandler over the years. There's a lot of critics who haven't been so kind to his films from the last decade or so. Do you think they're being unfair, or maybe missing out on what he's going for? Also, what do you enjoy about working with him?

A:

no no and no. we'll keep the highway open in BOTH directions all the time.


Q:

We were all happy as hell, but scared too. Technically the worst part was over, we'd found land, but we were in a unique situation geographically and mechanically. We had to dock in St. John's NFLD, which has a very very narrow entrance to it's harbour and little to no tugs to assist you. Due to the lack of power, we knew once we got into the harbour and put the engine in neutral to slow down, it was unlikely we would have enough power to re engage the engine again if needed so it was a one shot deal to get it right. A very small tug and the local pilot boat had to help us get into the dock.

Once we were tied up, everyone breathed a big sigh of relief and went down the gangway pretty quickly, There's no way I can describe the feeling of relief when your feet hit solid ground after an ordeal like that.

A:

Oh my god. I've been threatening to put out a CD called "Easy Listening: But Not That Easy." Because my music is truly mediocre, like the kind of a music you'd hear in an elevator. It is in fact elevator music.


Q:

Critics attack him. Makes no sense. He truly makes movies that make him laugh and that he knows his fans will like. He's genuine guy. He's a legend. You look at his body of work. Albums, SNL, all the movies. Annoys me when people shit on him. Everyone has an opinion but comedy is subjective. If you don't like him, move on. Critics like to feel like they've accomplished something taking shots at him.

A:

The answer is no. ODOT has worked hard to make sure that roads will be open and that the flow of traffic keeps moving during that week.


Q:

Would would be the worst outcome in that kind of a situation? If you failed parking, the boat and dock would just be damaged, right?

A:

How did you meet Will Lebow? Loved the bar scenes with you two just riffing back and forth.


Q:

Hey nick! Big fan of your tv show Pretend Time. Sad it was cancelled. So, my question would be: What is your daily morning routine? And, am i still creepy?

A:

Where did you come up with the name ApocEclipse – isn't that kind of foreboding?


Q:

Yes, we could have run aground, ran into another vessel, damaged a fuel tank and polluted the harbour etc. Just a lot of paperwork and potential jail time that we didn't want haha

A:

Will Lebow is a local actor, classically trained. Once put on 40 pounds for a voice-over.


Q:

Depends. I tour a lot. Write every day. Try to work out. Some weeks I'll just get hammered. Depends on my mood and whether I have to fart.

A:

The name is a joke because of the influx of visitors coming here and all of the planning going on. It makes it seem that we anticipate this to be a bad event. In reality, we don't anticipate anything negative from this event except increased travel times and demand for resources like food and fuel. We want to have fun and keep everyone safe!


Q:

What kind of boat were you in, a sail boat or a power boat?

A:

Hey, Dr Katz! It's awesome that you're doing this. 2 questions. What's your favorite episode of Dr. Katz Professional Therapist? And, do you squiggle in real life?


Q:

Have you ever eaten corn?

A:

Finally, people want to go to Madras.


Q:

We were on a 110 foot Guard Vessel, out supporting a larger seismic ship. The ship was actually a US submarine escort that was built back in the 60's before it was bought by our company and re purposed.

A:

My two favorite episodes are "Mask" and "Bully." Bully is the name of a stuffed animal I actually had as a kid that was sewn together by my mom.

No I don't, but I'd like to.


Q:

Hate corn. No joke.

A:

This all depends on what part of Oregon you are viewing from! The coast and valley (Salem) can be cloudy this time of the year. The farther east you go, the less chance of being cloudy. That's why a lot of people have made reservations in Central and Eastern Oregon.

If it's cloudy where you're viewing from, our recommendation is to stay put and still experience the eclipse from that location. It will be hard to jump into a vehicle and get somewhere else.


Q:

Just to clarify, OP was on a COMMERCIAL vessel, not a COAST GUARD vessel.

A:

Were the guests who didn't have a background in comedy approached by the folks who worked on the show, or did the guests reach out to the show? Winona Ryder for example.


Q:

I saw you at my school years ago. A girl in the back kept screaming "take off your pants." You compared her to a pterodactyl and told her not to have children until she is elderly. Do you remember this?

Also, which side character of yours from an Adam Sandler movie most deserves a spinoff?

A:

I live in Bend, OR and have heard a number of doom and gloom predictions about the aftermath (And even the foremath with hundreds of thousands of visitors streaming in over 4-5 days).

What plans are in place to deal with the almost guaranteed rise in crime in the major areas the eclipse is passing through (Salem, Madras, Ontario), and what will be done with people that get stranded here and homeless?


Q:

Thank you :)

A:

It worked both ways.

When I heard that Winona Ryder liked the show, I actually reached out to her.


Q:

Haha. Sounds about right. And Billy Madison or Wedding Singer.

A:

To add onto what OEM said, I think most agencies don't foresee a huge uptick in violent crime. There may be more things like trespassing and shoplifting but most people spent quite a bit of money to experience this here and I don't imagine they came here to get arrested!

Also, we have a local chapter of the Red Cross that we have been planning with, so we could potentially utilize their ability to shelter if we did have a lot of people temporarily stranded here for some reason.


Q:

So did your engines work or were the engines dead as well?

A:

Are there any dream "patients" that you wanted to have on the show, but it just never worked out?


Q:

Can the Vikings be the first team in NFL history to win a Super Bowl in their home stadium this year? Is Bradford or Bridgewater the future of the Vikings?

A:

Two questions: How do you expect the amount of food and supplies in Eugene will hold up? And, if I'm flying out shortly after the eclipse (few days after), will traffic still be an issue?


Q:

Our main was still working thankfully, or we would have been completely dead in the water and sending out a distress call for a rescue.

A:

David Letterman.


Q:

Ugh, that's tough. We could be a sleeper this year. It's all O line. And we'll see about Teddy's knee. I like him a lot but that injury was horrendous.

A:

To answer the question about flying; the heavy days for traffic leaving the area is Monday the 21st and Tuesday the 22nd. Traffic may still be an issue on Wednesday but hopefully not as much. I would just recommend using TripCheck to view the cams to look at traffic, leave early, and have patience.


Q:

Did any of the crew members have a panic attack or lost it?

A:

I loved Dr. Katz so much that, prior to the DVD release, I used to drive around listening to bootlegged audio recordings of all of the episodes. I'm so happy to have it back. Whose idea was it to do the new audio version?


Q:

How bad is your diarrhea?

A:

Lots of questions here. I'll let the hospital folks fill you in on medical, but we've been planning for this for months. Regarding travel, ODOT will keep the highways open. Might be slow. 4 hours Bend to Madras would be extreme. Our crews will be on the highways to move trouble out of the way. Maybe commuters can consider working from home or taking the day off.


Q:

No, everyone was surprisingly calm for the most part. Everyone was nervous for sure, especially as we got closer to land due to the lack of visibility, but everyone was very professional. There was many years of experience going to sea between the 8 crew members.

A:

That idea belongs to a guy named Bruce Smith.


Q:

Volcanic mess

A:

Thanks for all the questions! These are great. We can't really estimate drive times but roads will have a lot of people on them. It will take longer to get places than usual, even more so than a holiday weekend. Make sure to give yourself plenty of time, take supplies like food and water, and be patient.

We are recommending that locals go shopping and pick up prescriptions ahead of time because there could be a shortage on food, gas, and other supplies. Stock up a week before and then you'll have peace of mind.

There will be medical surge for EMS, clinics, and hospitals. It will take longer for people to respond to any emergencies but there are plans in place to meet the demands on our systems.


Q:

Anyone of the crew came in clutch? Like, if those one or two people weren't there, you wouldn't have made it. Or was it a team effort?

A:

Also, I was wondering; is actual therapy anything like it is in the show? Probably not,but one could dream... Didn't know if you had life experience with therapy


Q:

Do you like ponies?

A:

It was definitely a team effort. There were only 8 of us; Myself, the chief mate and the Captain did our normal 4 hour watches, the two deckhands took turns manually steering the ship and the two engineers did their best to make sure our engine didn't quit on us. And the cook did his best to try and keep us fed on whatever food he could find that didn't need to be cooked. But having a 65 year old, incredibly experienced captain who was one of the funniest people I've ever met really helped. We were all confident in his experience and abilities and he kept morale high. It was funny watching him steering the ship into port dressed in a Mustang floater suit cause it was November in Canada and he was freezing to death haha


Q:

My experience in therapy is just 45 minutes of trying to make my therapist laugh, and then paying her.

A:

A lot. too much


Q:

If you were supporting another boat why didn't you just call them and try and get some support. Coast guard tows for free in that situation, also did you not have a satellite phone?

A:

Does the slightly squigglyness of your head cause any neurologic problems?


Q:

Who looks better in the nude: Meatsauce or Mark Rosen?

A:

We did. They relayed our situation to our company and the coast guard before we left. The seismic ship could not leave the site so we had to go back on our own. We had a sat phone but it was not a mobile one and therefore received power from the ship.


Q:

I've been living with MS for 20 years, a disease of the central nervous system. And as the Associate Director of the Central Nervous System, I see no connection

A:

Rosie. Delicious.


Q:

Did you guys have equipments to get fresh water?

A:

Was working strictly in audio any different than previous Dr. Katz work? Also, the joke that you told on Marc Maron's show a few years ago about the guy yelling at Kate Smith at a boxing match is my favorite joke of all time.


Q:

Whats your favorite Sandler memory?

A:

We had a water maker on board, so our fresh water tank was full when it happened and we carried enough bottled drinking water to last us for weeks.


Q:

Oddly enough, when we did the animated show the animation didn't begin util we had signed off on the audio. So for me it's not really that different.

A:

Fuck. too many. He's hilarious. We always laugh a lot. I've truly never gotten a long with anyone so well.


Q:

What did you guys do to pass the time besides figure out how to get back to land? Or was that all you guys focused on?

A:

Is your body surrounded by shaky black lines?


Q:

Grandma's boy is in my top 5 fave comedy flicks of all time! my question is: is there plans for a blu-ray release? My DVD looks like poop on my nice tv.

A:

We honestly spent a lot time playing cribbage and I Spy on the bridge lol. Everyone's phones were dead so we actually had to talk to each other for three days.


Q:

They've finally stopped shaking.

A:

Ugh, we've been pushing blue ray for a while. Annoying. Sorry.


Q:

was there enough light through the fog to power solar cells if you had them?

A:

How do you justify your existence?


Q:

On a scale of 1 to Norovirus diarrhea, how high was Rogan during the podcast?

A:

I'm not really sure to be honest


Q:

The usual way.

A:

Haha. He smoked the fires of Mordor (spelling)


Q:

How were you found and what did you think when the generators first died?

A:

Your work, across the board, has entertained me and brought me joy my entire life! Thank you so very much!

Any up and coming projects we might not know about?

Also, your natural "funny"...What do you attribute it to? Goofy upbringing? Natural curiosity?


Q:

There have been some regulars you work with, like Sandler and Spade. Who is most enjoyable to work with?

A:

First thought? God damn it, crew change day was 5 days away! We made to about 50 miles from the coast on our own. At the point, our company had sent another ship out to meet us and guide us the rest of the way in.


Q:

A role in the web series K&A. A role in Steve Sweeney's movie.

I mostly attribute it to being small and getting picked on as a kid.

A:

Those two and Danny McBride.


Q:

What are your thoughts on Ian Abramson? Be honest.

A:

Everyone from Minneapolis has a Prince story. What's yours?


Q:

Hysterically funny.

A:

To long to type. Fack.


Q:

If I were on the Audible show I'd ask you how to handle feeling jealous over my dog's endless joy and my 1-year-old's social graces ... any pointers from the couch?

A:

I love when you tweet during Vikings games. You gonna make it to any this year?


Q:

I suspect that your dog is secretly jealous of you. And you need to be more sensitive to that.

A:

Of course. Saints opening day game.


Q:

Was it difficult to get comedy central on board for such a relatively untested concept? How did Dr Katz happen? Had you been doing a live version in Boston before the show came together? It was really such a remarkable breath of fresh air in the 90s when it came out.

A:

Nick when is the last time you farted?


Q:

HBO's enthusiasm helped bring Comedy Central into the fold.

Nope, animated show came first.

A:

Haven't yet today. Might start to worry.


Q:

which fellow comedian do you feel was unappreciated and as a result now works in a completely different but more lucrative industry?

A:

At what age did you start comedy? And As a stand up comedian how long was it in your career before you could call yourself successful?


Q:

Steve Trilling.

A:

Started at 19 and success is subjective. Maybe 23 years old I started to feel confident about not sleeping in an alley.


Q:

Dr. Katz, why is your office phone line always busy?

A:

Whats the worst poop you ever took? Please specify the reason for the disaster poop and location of deification.


Q:

That's kind of like the chicken and the egg question. So I'm going to say the egg.

A:

I took a shit in Vegas that looked like green alien barf. It's amazing what drinking a lot does to your body. So bad for you but still sweet. In moderation.


Q:

Do you like star wars?

A:

Am I out of line when i say the vikes are going 16-0 this year? cuz i dont think so. Im ready to skol my dick off this season


Q:

Some of them.

A:

Bless your heart.


Q:

Any advice for new comedians?

A:

Write every day. Be original. Find your voice, that'll take years. Commit your life to it with no guarantees and smile through bombing.


Q:

Have you ever eaten pizza from the Tin Shed in Shakopee? It's good.

A:

No. But I'll change that.


Q:

How much pot do you smoke? What's a funny memory you have from filming grandmas boy? Do you do any charity work? Loved you in grandmas boy- one of my classic go to stoner films. I just learned about your show via this AMA so I'll be sure to check it out!

A:

I actually don't smoke weed. Haven't for maybe 25 years. Everyone thinks I do even though I've said I don't on specials.


Q:

How was your Flag Day this year?

A:

I had diarrhea soooooo........ GREAT


Q:

How would you rate your roller skating skills?

A:

About the same as my figure skating. Olympic.


Q:

What should I eat tonight?

A:

Food. Cat food?


Q:

What was your dream apart from being an actor?

A:

That's all I had. No other dream. Truly. When I was a child I wanted to be an architect cause of the movie Three Men and a Baby.


Q:

Why do you think Bucky Larson was snubbed by the Emmys?

A:

Robots, man, robots.


Q:

So do you remember taking this photo after you performed at Cal U of PA back in September 2013? http://imgur.com/a/4dXii

A:

Vaguely.


Q:

Do you still fuck with Minnesota?

A:

Always and forever


Q:

Do you think Adam Sandler should keep making movies?

A:

Yes of course. I love Adam. People hate on him and it's like "if you don't like him than don't watch his movies" but he's funny and great.


Q:

What are your thoughts on ?

A:

Exactly


Q:

What's one of the best things about filming a TV Show/Movie in your opinion?

A:

If you have creative control!!


Q:

Happy to see you back on CC, man. Will you and Rogan really do a companion podcast soon and watch Laserblast?

A:

Fuck yeah we will.


Q:

Who are your favorite comics at the moment?

A:

haven't seen anyone in a while. I've been doing this 21 years. The last thing I do is watch stand up.


Q:

Hi Nick, what are your next goals and dreams to accomplish?

A:

Just keep creating. New show and more movies. But I'd like to travel the world more and help out more. Help drunk people walk home in other countries. Train squirrels to give rim jobs. Typical dreams.


Q:

If you wernt an actor what job do u think youd have/want?

A:

School teacher. Grade school. I like making kids laugh and I'm not that smart so I could teach easy shit and look like a genius. And they'd be as immature as I am. I'd teach fart noises.


Q:
