Matt Labash’s favorite interview technique
I generally lead off with “Why do you hate the Jews?” Most of the time they don’t hate the Jews (though once, when I asked it, a country singer’s wife surprised me by saying: “Do you want just one reason?”) But most find the question so disturbing that they’ll often gratefully answer whatever I ask next. Which is why my follow-up question is usually, “What are you running from?”
Holy crap guys, I’m pitching today! I was super stressed yesterday but now I’m all, “Hey man, I got this.”
If you pitch a claymation version of House Hunters, I want a cut of the billion dollars they give you.
