Good One: A Podcast About Jokes

with Jesse David Fox

Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok (Rerun)

10/14/2019

Back in Season 2, Jesse got to speak with actor, writer, and director Taika Waititi about his remarkably comedic take on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Thor: Ragnarok.

The interview touches on Taika's New Zealand style of comedy, and how he approached changing a historically serious protagonist like Thor into the goofy, muscly, laugh-inducing character that he is in Ragnarok. Jesse and Taika talk pre and post production, as well as what role improvisation takes on set.

Also included: eggs.

Follow Taika on Twitter and see Jojo Rabbit while it's still in theaters.
