Chris Gethard is an amazing person with a big heart, who also happens to be one of the most entertaining people around. Last year, Chris was cast as the lead in a sitcom that was canceled right away. So he decided to stick with something that was he could control … a public access show on the Manhattan Neighborhood Network. The decision to pause a more typical acting career in Los Angeles in favor of a public access TV show was not an easy one. But as we see here, the show has become an important thing in a lot of people’s lives, particularly young people with mental health issues. As Chris says, it is the closest thing to a ‘calling’ he has ever experienced.
