And… we’re back! Get set for brand new installments of our weekly video web series A Tight Five. What better way to kick off our next crop of episodes than with stand-up comedy legend Robert Schimmel. The man just premiered a new Showtime special called Life Since Then (also out on DVD); the hour-long set largely deals with the events of his life since he was diagnosed with cancer and beat it.

It was an honor to sit down with Schimmel for A Tight Five. We covered everything from new sexually deviant phrases — strawberry shortcake, anyone? — to why he likes Dane Cook so darn much. Check it out!

A Tight Five is shot at Comix in New York City, edited by RooftopComedy and produced by Punchline Magazine. To watch all past interviews, visit atight5.com.
