Time to get naked today on the show. Almost literally. Here is the deal on Keith and The Girl: Not held back by the FCC or anyone else, Keith and Chemda create hilarious talk shows 5 days a week along with a video podcast. Topics cover celebrity gossip, current news, pop culture and preventing robots from taking over the world.

To date, they have created over 1,400 shows and have millions upon millions of downloads and is constantly ranked as one of the top comedy podcasts online.

In this interview, I was lucky enough to hunt down Chemda and Keith to talk about the background of the show, how it grew and oh so much more. Enjoy!

About Today’s Guests, Keith and Chemda:

Keith Malley and ChemdaKeith Malley: After a mere year performing stand-up comedy, Keith Malley was the 2004 grand prize winner at the prestigious World Comedy Laugh Off in New York City. He immediately recorded his debut CD/DVD Coming of Age and vowed to record a new one-take only CD/DVD each and every birthday with all new material. He is about to perform and record his seventh stand-up show in April 2010.

Chemda: Chemda made her first professional appearance in 1995 on well-known reggae artist Dr. Israel’s second album. Since then, she was the lead singer and choreographer for Mighty Dub Katz; featured on Comedy Central aside comedian Jeff Ross; and, teamed up with Rhys Fulber (formally of Front Line Assembly) for Conjure One as writer and singer, with songs featured on ESPN and EA Sports’ FIFA 2002.

Along with recent European tours, Chemda completed a US/Canadian tour as the sole vocalist for Conjure One, performing in venues such as Commodore Ballroom, Vancouver, BC and Irving Plaza, New York, NY. She has recorded vocals for the follow-up album to Conjure One entitled Extraordinary Ways.

Later that year, Chemda also wrote and sang on the album Patterns of War as part of the new dub band Dreadtone International. Chemda recently finished recording the CD for the rock opera Victory in Defeat and continues to write and collaborate with various artists around the world.

    David is adorable! Good interview! I am a fan who started listening to the show in the winter of 07, from Virginia, and moved to New York and started interning for them in 08! It has been an awesome experience and they are and always will be dear to my heart. 

    Peace, love, and Keith and The Girl.
