Comedian Joe Mande Asks for $1 Million to Start Podcast

Making good on an offer on Saturday to start a podcast for $1 million, Parks and Recreation writer Joe Mande has initiated a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money. “If you pay me one million dollars,” writes Mande on the project page, “I will host a weekly podcast where I interview comedians and musicians and shit like that.”

“The Million Dollar Podcast” project has yet to go live on the crowdfunding website, but Mande has assured fans it’s more than just a joke. “This kickstarter has not been ‘verified’ yet,” said the comedian on Twitter, “but it is 100% real.” Currently the campaign lists only one reward, available to donors of $1000 or more: “I’ll mention your name on the podcast or something who cares.”
