Chapter 1: Emily Dickinson, featuring Andy Richter

Chapter 1: H.G. Wells (Paul F. Tompkins) welcomes painfully shy poetess Emily Dickinson (Andy Richter) to the stage of The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, Los Angeles. There are some minor sound problems. We're working on it. By Chapter 3, we'll all be laughing about this!

  • Tell Andy Richter his Emily Dickinson also makes for a pretty convincing Charlie McCarthy. If Paul works on his Edgar Bergan, you'd have something.
