John Hodgman's SXSW Backstage Tour With Todd Barry, Kumail Nanjiani & Kyle Kinane (VIDEO)

When we asked John Hodgman if we would do a quick video interview with us backstage at SXSW, we had no idea what we had gotten ourselves into.

In between his two sets at Esther's Follies on Monday night, Hodgman took us on an impromptu tour of the venue, and chatted with comedians Todd Barry, Kumail Nanjiani and Kyle Kinane along the way.

He also gave us some valuable insights on the world of backstage cuisine.

If you are in the northeast, you can catch Hodgman performing alongside one of our favorite funny people (and our only favorite artisanal pencil sharpener) David Rees on Friday, March 16 at the State Theater at State College, PA.
