I Have a Problem, With David Heti

An episode of I Have a Problem, With David Heti

By David Heti
Stand-up comic David Heti invites a guest to air and discuss a grievance against him. Accusation, argumentation, recrimination and more, it’s an intimate, honest, and—at least for David—generally quite entirely uncomfortable exchange. www.davidheti.com

#13 • Gabriel Heti (Dad)
I suppose maybe our first "very special" episode, as my guest is none other than my Father. Sometimes I end up going home for a bit when in between living and doing shows and floating around other places. My Father was reluctant to come on, for various understandable reasons.

Eric’s an academic and we once went to give some talk and apparently I was a bit of a cunt when I had some place to be though he could’ve spoken up, no, don’t you think? He’s a lovely guy and it’s a delight to hear him put words together da da da da da.

Friend and musician Chris Durning hits on a part of the way I am that I’d never really thought of before. Maybe he’s right.

#10 • Nick Flanagan
Comic (and musician) Nick Flanagan doesn’t want me sharing my thoughts or feelings with our community. It makes him uncomfortable with himself, apparently.

#9 • Sasha Manoli
Comedy producer Sasha Manoli thinks it’s ok to just go around agreeing to things and then changing her mind. No, not really. Vegas, “cunt” and apparently not making very nice with other comics.

#8 • Dom Paré
Comic Dom Paré doesn’t really hold back. In addition to just talking all over about the world of stand-up, he tells me what I’ve done to alienate others in the stand-up community. Honest, thoughtful, direct and maybe just a little bit bitter, there are few comics I enjoy talking with, listening to more. @dpare

#7 • Mike
Very good old friend Mike, with love and concern and then irritation, calls me on my general pessimistic outlook and inappropriate gynaecological favour-askings. He also takes issue with at least one past guest, which really isn’t on me. Much warmth, laughter.

#6 • Margaux Williamson
Artist Margaux Williamson explains to David that she’s perfectly ok with him charging his roommate an unfair rent. It kind of cuts to the bone.

#5 • Daniel
With an all too rare honesty, warmth and matter-of-factness, Daniel will tell you what’s on his mind. From asexuality and noblesse oblige to disappointing my parents, this is perhaps the recording which I enjoyed making most. Few people will ever say such things to me again, I believe.

#4 • Hayley Imerman
About a couch. David and architect friend Hayley Imerman try and suss it out as to whose it is and where and why and what happened. All this time, so uncomfortably comfy.

#3 • Eric Andrews
Self-proclaimed “a bit shy and a bit awkward” comic Eric Andrews kind of plays around with the form or something. I’m still not really sure what he did or what were his intentions, but it was exhausting and I really enjoyed myself.

#2 • Nicholas Hune-Brown
David and old friend and Toronto-based journalist Nicholas Hune-Brown discuss a ride home from the bar gone wrong. Also, vibrator-giving, pushy old women and just lubrication generally (i.e. social).
