Jessica in our Nietzsche on truth episode did a good job making Nietzsche sound nice and sane. On this episode of the Dead Authors Podcast (a Paul F. Tompkins vehicle performed live on stage), comedian/impressionist James Adomian portrays him as certifiably insane.
It appears that some research went into this faux interview (which also features a fake H.P. Lovecraft), with (it appears) numerous actual Nietzsche quotes, and though Adomian immediately plays on N’s apparent anti-semitism, he also jumps on the fact that N condemns anti-semites. (No such balance is given, or available for, N’s sexism.) Of course, as is always fun when portraying historical figures, N. is uttering these things incessantly and completely outside of any context, much like portraying Newton as constantly getting hit by apples. Still, as a piece of humor, it works, and it’s probably less damaging to the study of Nietzsche than it could have been. Pretty fun; I enjoy the Tompkins, who plays interviewer H.G. Wells (and he should totally come on as a guest for our next humor episode, eh?).
