Cast of "Undateable" not unlikable

SXSW, Undateable

Laughter has power—the power to make me want to start watching the show “Undateable.”

Chris D’Elia (Danny Burton), Ron Funches (Shelly), Brent Morin (Justin Kearney) and Rick Glassman (Burski) sat down Tuesday to discuss the origin of their careers as stand up comedians, and the renewal of second season of their NBC show, “Undateable.” 

“Undateable” is the first show to star four stand-up comics.

The four comedians began their careers doing stand-up in clubs and bars.

Funches said he began in Portland.

Morin said his parents were always supportive of his comedic career.

“…You lucky motherf­­­­ucker,” Funches said. “I had so many people telling me to stop doing it.”

Comedy was something the cast knew they always wanted to pursue.
