Our trip to this year’s San Francisco’s Sketchfest Comedy Festival has elicited even more comedic gold. Not only did we get John Glaser to interview Bob Mould, but we also wrangled comedy group Stella to sit down with John Vanderslice, prolific alternative musician and founder of local Tiny Telephone studio.

The resulting — um, let’s call it a therapy session, finds Vanderslice seeking advice from the comedy trio of Michael Showalter, Michael Ian Black, and David Wain. Over the course of seven minutes, the unlicensed professionals and law school wannabes deliver pearls of wisdom you probably didn’t even know you needed. For example, what exactly are the legal ramifications of stealing your neighbor’s compost for sustenance? And perhaps most pressing of all, when is the “right time” to introduce a new lady friend to your favorite dildo? Start improving your life right now by watching the interview below.

In related news, Vanderslice is currently running a Kickstarter campaign to help fund two new projects: a new LP titled Dagger Beach and a front-to-back cover of David Bowie’s classic Diamond Dogs. Vanderslice reconnected with the Magik*Magik Orchestra for Dagger Beach, while the Bowie covers album also saw help from Avi Buffalo.
