The Comedians and Cameos

This week on Pop Culture Happy Hour, NPR Monkey See's Linda Holmes, Stephen Thompson, Glen Weldon, and Chris Klimek discuss the new FX series The Comedians, starring Billy Crystal and Josh Gad. They'll discuss its relatives in the broader family of show business stories and backstage satire. Then they'll take a look at the briefest of acting triumphs: the cameo.
