In Messed Up Stories, each episode will tell a different story in a different genre — including 1970s-era science fiction, psychological thriller, romantic comedy and reality — and will parody pop culture norms and exploit the awkwardness of its flawed characters. Sounds completely original, much like Goldthwait himself. His most recent major project was the documentary Call Me Lucky, about standup Barry Crimmins. He's also recently directed comedy specials from Eugene Mirman, Cameron Esposito, and Marc Maron, as well as a number of episodes of Maron and Those Who Can't. And of course he wrote and directed God Bless America a few years back, a movie about a terminally-ill middle aged man and a teenage girl going on a country-wide murder spree.
