Episode Summary

EDIT
Health: The Making of El Corazon
AIRED:
Ever wanted to learn about the heart by way of a Latin love song? Well, now you can, thanks to California-based musical comedy duo Hard 'N Phirm, comprising our very own Chris Hardwick and his close college pal Mike Phirman (Get it? Hard 'N Phirm?). The two met at UCLA, where they were both members of a stand-up comedy club that performed around campus a few times a year. "Mike and I, we just sort of hit it off," recalls Hardwick. "There was one show in particular where Mike had a guitar, so we were like, 'Hey, why don't we do some songs?'". That's how it all started. The duo began with cover songs-think "The Muppet Show" theme-and not soon after, their bag of musical tricks won them first prize in UCLA's annual talent competition, Spring Sing. "There's a plaque in the Alumni Center for UCLA that for 1995 says 'Hard 'N Phirm,'" Hardwick says. After graduating-both with degrees in philosophy-the two went their separate ways until 2003, when they decided that it was time to begin writing original songs. And that's when "El Corazon" came to be.moreless
