Hua Hsu on Chris Elliott

by Reihan Salam

As a child, I was a great admirer of the comedian Chris Elliott, who at the time made occasional appearances on Late Night with David Letterman as “the guy under the seats.” His almost indescribably bizarre pseudo-memoir Daddy’s Boy, co-authored by his father Bob Elliott, was another favorite. Hua Hsu’s Grantland interview with Elliott brought back many fond memories.
