The Third Episode Episode is the third episode of The Chris Gethard Show, airing after The Episode Where Everything Started and before The Tazapper Episode. The show's prep time had been double-booked by MNN, so they were forced to move to a smaller studio for this episode. This meant they were unable to have a live studio audience, a musical guest, or do any of their larger physical bits. The topic for this episode is to call in and tell the panel about the worst day of your life. Half-way through Chris Gethard adds a new call-in topic "Am I, the host of this show, off-putting?"


The synopsis for this episode has not been written up yet.





  • The Human Fish: We learn more details about the Human Fish in this episode. Human Fish needs goggles to see in the air, the same way we need goggles to see underwater. Nobody knows what is under his shorts, and he won’t answer any questions besides his internal battles. His home is "the sea."


  1. "Jeremy" talks about bailing his mother out of jail on his birthday. This is the first call to receive the Awkward Song for technical difficulties. Random Jean suggested that Jeremy should hire "Lou Geirgo" who she claimed is a powerful celebrity lawyer.
  2. Jake Fogelnest talks about Ger Stevens.
  3. "Brandon" tells a tale of unrequited love.
  4. Prank caller pretends to be Ger Stevens.
  5. Caller says this is the worst night of his life, gets the Obvious Joke song.
  6. "Casey" asks who will play Casey Anthony in the movie about her.
  7. "Hank" makes a prank call about chlamydia.
  8. "Joe" talks about Chris Gethard's videos where he dramatically reads erotic fan fiction.
  9. "Bobby from the Bronx" pervs on Hallie Bulleit.

Quote1 He came to us. We don’t know very much about him except he’s from the sea. He’s acclimating to the world of humanity right now, and he’s always just got stuff on his mind. Internal struggles. He’s trying to figure out his viewpoint on the world around him. So, Fish, what’s on your mind right now? Quote2
