UCBeast's ANIMATED STORIES featured on Huffington Post

<p>From the <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/03/chris-gethard-was-an-evil-baby_n_992403.html">Huffington Post</a>:</p>

<p>Mild mannered storyteller, comedian, actor and talk show host, <a href="http://thechrisgethardshow.com/">Chris Gethard</a> &mdash; the guy who got <a href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ross-luippold/diddy-makes-live-comedy-debut_b_810395.html">P. Diddy</a> to come to the UCB Theater &mdash; was an incredibly evil baby. It might be hard to believe, but that's why we have the magic of animated storytelling.</p>

<p>This cheeky animation was created by artist <a href="http://www.maelledoliveux.com/">Maëlle Doliveux</a>, and it was created as part of the monthly show "Animated Stories" which runs at UCB's new East Village, NYC location. Check it out and learn how Gethard single-handedly convinced is parents' friends to NOT have children.</p>
