Interview Done By Mike Wilkerson
MW: Please introduce yourself.
HZ: Hey there internet humans my name is Henry Zebrowski, I’m a comedian from NYC in the sketch group Murderfist and I run a podcast called Last Podcast On The Left from Cave Comedy Radio. I am 604 pounds and I love my bed.
MW: How did you get involved with Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell?
HZ: I auditioned for it in NYC and I met Dave Willis and Casper Kelly in LA while I was out there peddling my wares to the city of Angels. They are hilarious and beautiful people.
MW: How do you like being Gary?
HZ: I think that I am actually Gary and that Henry is an imposter. I love the character and I would play him forever.
MW: How hard was it doing the character?
HZ: Not hard at all, except for when I had a spike shoved inside my butt for most of an episode. The spike harness, made by the brilliant Chris Brown of creature effects for Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, really chafed my “inner sanctum.”
MW: How did the show come about?
HZ: It started off as a short of the same name done by Dave Willis and Casper Kelly, Dave actually played my character but he had a giant face constricting rubber mask on for the duration and it really hurt him. I think it went through a number of iterations before it arrived at Adult Swim in its current sexy form.
MW: How many episodes of the first season will there be?
HZ: There are 6 action packed butt ‘sploding episodes.
MW: How long is each episode?
HZ: 15 minutes, or a fat man’s walk around the block.
MW: What is the show about?
HZ: I play Gary who is an associate demon in hell who is no good at his job. Satan, played by Matt Servitto- a cruel man, is my boss and he tortures me for all of my days. Claude is my truly evil intern played by Craig Rowan who gets all the ladies (sorry ladies, he’s getting married), one-ups me at every turn. It’s like Touched By An Angel meets Jacob’s Ladder with me playing a Marnie like idiot. Is that too weird?
MW: What can we expect for the first season?
HZ: It’s going to change your life. I hope you like laughing because if not you are a bad person, don’t watch the show.
MW: You just started acting back in 2009. What did you do before that?
HZ: Drifted from town to town, selling spoon jewelry. I lived in Florida for a time and I am still the same comedian in NYC I have been for 7 years with my group Murderfist.
MW: Your first show was Michael & Michael Have Issues. Please tell me about it?
HZ: It was a fun experience. Michael Showalter and Michael Ian Black are very tall and they got comedy out of me through a mix of fear and money.
MW: Is the show on DVD or where can it be seen?
HZ: It’s on DVD and Netflix Instant. I sometimes toss it on the Netflix whenever I’m feeling sad.
MW: What has been your favorite TV show to be a guest star on?
HZ: I loved doing Law and Order SVU because my mom got to see me being a stoned pervert.
MW: Tell me about CollegeHumor Originals.
HZ: They are run by a great group of people and I love doing sketch all over town.
MW: Where can it be seen?
MW: Tell me about Jest Originals.
HZ: They are a part of College Humor and again a bunch of awesome comedians making funny stuff.
MW: Where can it be seen?
HZ: On jest.com!
MW: How is The Wolf Of Wall Street going?
HZ: It’s the experience of a lifetime. I will probably never get to do something like this again so I take things from set as much as possible.
MW: Who do you get to act with in the movie?
HX: It’s a list far greater than I, Leonardo Dicaprio, Jonah Hill, Rob Reiner, Ethan Suplee, PJ Byrne, Kenny Choi, NYC comedian Barry Rothbart – it’s insane. People are going to flip out over this movie.
MW: What else can we expect from you in 2013?
HZ: I am releasing a new BBQ sauce called “Zebrowski’s Hog Spit.” Also look for me on “Huffin It With Biff and Stu” on My Damn Channel and the film Awful Nice!
MW: What would you like to say in closing?
HZ: The reptilians run everything.
