After successful stints on SNL and 30 Rock, we all know that Jon Hamm is not only an impeccable dramatic actor, but also a fantastic comedian. This week, witness Jon and several other Mad Men actors crack wise and heckle one another in an episode of the Nerdist’s All Star Celebrity Bowling. Don Draper, Pete Campbell, Harry Crane (ok, Jon Hamm, Vincent Kartheiser, and Rich Sommer) and show-creator Matt Weiner faceoff against “Weird Al” Yankovic and Nerdist creator Chris Hardwick in the bowling match to end all bowling matches.
If you aren’t already familiar with the Nerdist, it is a podcast/website founded and run by Chris Hardwick, who apparently used to host MTV’s Singled Out, but is in fact a huge nerd. Every week he and his friends podcast host interviews with their favorite nerdy celebrities. For all of my fellow nerd BUSTies, this podcast should be part of your regular media consumption; it will fill your mind with the sort of behind-the-scenes minutiae that no one but you and Chris Hardwick care about.
Watch the video below! For once, you get to see Pete act like a charming, funny human being, and as a bonus you hear Don Draper deadpan about how much he loves a good banana peel joke.
