Martin Shkreli Hearing [The Kirk Show]

Marty, Marty, Marty, you have been a bad monkey! K-SPAN brings you highly sought-after excerpts from the House Committee Hearing of “Pharma Bro” Martin Shkreli. Chairman Buckley (Kirk Gunton) and Congressman Reitzell (Kirk Rozich) really put him through the wringer. You won’t see this scintillating footage anywhere else.

Details about this unique shoot after the jump.

This was a fun one. I wrote two drafts, very quickly, based on Kirk’s concept that he developed after watching the CNN hearing. We shot it over the course of a morning in the Wilkes County Heritage Museum in Wilkesboro, NC, a former courthouse that worked just great for our purposes.

We finally dive head-first into controversy, as Shrekli has some very rabid defenders, several of whom took to the comments to tell us how dumb and wrong and pathetic we are. And then we received word from the man himself!

Clearly a good sport.
