Michael Ian Black and Armen Weitzman Talk ‘Another Period’ at Comic-Con

Comic-Con: Another Period stars and creators Natasha Leggero and Riki Lindhome came to Comic-Con to chat about their new Comedy Central show, bringing with them Michael Ian Black, Armen Weitzman, Paget Brewster and Executive Producer Jeremy Konner. 

Another Period follows the lives of the obscenely rich Bellacourt family and their many servants in turn-of-the-century Rhode Island in this historical satire about narcissistic aristocrats and the poor souls in their employ.

When not being asked about dirty jokes, periods or wavy hair, Michal Ian Black was asked what it was about that time period that makes it really ripe for comedy? “Well, I’ll give you a serious answer,” he told us. “The classic high-brow/low-brow dichotomy. You’ve got your high-brow, the aristocrats who act like savages and you‘ve got your low-brow who turn out to be actual people with feelings. And of course, you just make fun of the fact that they’re poor. Nothing is funnier than that. Nothing’s funnier than class warfare.”

Check out the video above. You’ll definitely laugh when you hear Black say, “I’ve bled out of every orifice of my body.”

Another Period airs on Comedy Central on Tuesdays at 10:30pm
