Adam Pally Interview: The Mets, Knicks & Hot Sauce

By October 21, 2015June 18th, 2018No Comments


Yesterday my friends at Cap’n Crunch hooked it up with a sneak preview of The Crunch Bowl, a cool obstacle course event held at North Ave Beach in Chicago, plus a 10-minute interview with Adam Pally, who you might know as Max from the TV show Happy Endings or the improv and sketch comedy he did at Upright Citizens Brigade. This is the awesomeness that what went down.

I got the party started by GoPro’ing my bike ride from my place in Old Town down to The Crunch Bowl.

Adam Pally was a cool dude. He is a sports fan, creator, and did improv and sketch comedy (among other things) and since those are some of the things I’m passionate about in my life I was excited to interview him. We talked about his outlook for the Knicks this season, the Mets/Cubs NLCS matchup, the And 1 tour, as well as some tips about being a creator/comedian/entertainer.

Here’s some photos of The Crunch Bowl setup. I really dug the engagement and creativity that Cap’n Crunch put together with this. It gave their fans an opportunity to interact in a fun and unique way (think Double Dare meets Nickelodeon Guts).

Select fans get an opportunity to joust a Pirate while others throw foam Cap’n Crunch at them. There certainly needs to be more throwing cereal in my life.

Riding a shark is way cooler and fiercer than riding a bull.

There was even a climbing wall with the goal of touching the spoon at the top first.

Participants had to dig under those X’s Double Dare style (like finding a flag under that giant pepperoni pizza).
