My wife and I, along with our friend standup comedian Emily Galati (Last Comic Standing, Conan) appeared on an episode of the hit Discover credit card show, 'Chicago Money Taxi', in which unwilling contestants are driven around a city and forced to answer trivia questions while trying their best to not get car sick.

A small sampling of things I did that family and friends found embarrassing:

  • Encouraged the driver to "step on it".
  • Repeatedly and incorrectly answered "mortarboard" to a question about city names.
  • Referenced the 1984 film 'Gremlins'.

Our episode was shot in early January 2011 and aired two months later in March.
