Jim Norton, Ophira Eisenberg, Christian Finnegan and More to Appear on KEITH AND THE GIRL'S 24-Hour Comedy Marathon

Legendary Queens-based podcasting duo Keith and The Girl will be holding their annual 24-hour comedy marathon beginning Saturday, January 30 @ 3pm EST, as more than 50 of their fans' favorite guests will make appearances to celebrate their 16th year of podcasting. The entire program will be conducted remotely, with hosts Keith Malley and Chemda broadcasting from their homes. Viewers around the world can tune in for free on the Keith and The Girl YouTube channel.

Among the guests already confirmed to appear are Jim Norton (SiriusXM Radio), Ophira Eisenberg (NPR's Ask Me Another), Myq Kaplan (Conan), Christian Finnegan (Chappelle's Show), and more, including surprise celebrity guests who will drop in unannounced.

The marathon, which has been a staple of the Keith and The Girl podcast since 2008, was funded after raising over $25,000 of their Kickstarter goal.

Those who contributed to KATG's Kickstarter will also soon receive The Dad Emails - The Book, a collection of email exchanges between Keith posing as his ex-wife and Keith's creepy, unsuspecting father, a saga which has played out on the podcast over the course of the past year.

"It's all there," Keith says. "It's all there in all it's disgusting undeniable detail." Malley then vomited.

Keith and The Girl's 2021 24-hour marathon begins Saturday, January 30 @ 3pm EST and will last uninterrupted through Sunday, January 31 @ 3pm EST. Viewers can watch the entire program for free at katg.com/marathon.
