The war on cargo shorts, the proliferation of spandex and ‘Fatty’: Actor Matt Nikkila

Don’t flick your Bic, ‘Matches’ is in the mix!

Translation: Comedic actor Matt Nikkila jumps in the front seat for a trip to Weiner’s Circle, the infamous Chicago hot dog joint. Over char dogs, we discuss:

*Matt’s secret radio past
*The disproportionate amount of yoga pants in Lakeview
*The thankless nature of “barprov” (“it’s a very weird atmosphere. It’s very dark. It’s very drunk”)
*The TV pilot for “Fatty,” which has Nikkila in the starring role
*Chicago’s comedy scene
*The “Harlem Globetrotters of food” concept for Car Con Carne
*Why I had to smuggle Oreos into the car
*Delayed gratification
*Spandex decision-making: Good judgment?
*The war on jorts and cargo shorts

Toward the end of the episode, I mention that Matt’s someone to watch. Learn more than you could ever want to know about him in this installment of Car Con Carne!
