Terry Gross gets funny in "2 FRESH, 2 FURIOUS" video

As part of This American Life's live show last night, comedian and frequent TAL contributor Mike Birbiglia wrote and directed a 6-minute comedic short film featuring Fresh Air's Terry Gross.

The film — "Fresh Air 2: 2 FRESH, 2 FURIOUS" — stars Gross, parodying her hyper-formal interviewing style to great comedic effect. Ira Glass is a producer of the short, and Glass has also collaborated with Birbiglia on the upcoming film "Sleepwalk With Me."

Incidentally, today marks the 25th anniversary of the day Fresh Air became a daily national NPR program.
