ERIC SPITZNAGEL: It’s been a big year for you and impressions.
ANDY RICHTER: Has it?
ES: It has. Let’s start with your Newt Gingrich impression on Conan.
ANDY RICHTER: Oh dear.
ES: O’Brien did a fine Callista, but your Newt was masterful. Do you feel like it might’ve affected the GOP primaries?
ANDY RICHTER: No more than Newt Gingrich affects the primaries just by being Newt Gingrich.
ES: Is it not possible that Republican voters could be watching late-night talk shows to form their political opinions?
ANDY RICHTER: I’ve never gotten that feeling. I don’t see us as an anti-birth control kinda show.”
ES: I read an interview with Julianne Moore where she talked about preparing to play Sarah Palin in Game Change, and she apparently filled her iPod with nothing but Palin’s speeches. Did you do anything like that with Newt?
ANDY RICHTER: I’m not that professional. I frequently don’t know I’ll be doing Newt Gingrich until they’re handing me a wig at rehearsal.
ES: So why are you so good at it? Do you and Newt have more in common than we realize?
ANDY RICHTER: We have the same doughy, old-baby face. It’s like an elderly baby. That’s where the genius of my impersonation begins and ends.
ES: Your other big acting performance that we need to talk about is Emily Dickinson.
ANDY RICHTER: That’s right. Probably my finest hour as an actor. Will any of your readers know what we’re talking about?
ES: The right ones will.
ANDY RICHTER: I played Dickinson on something called the Dead Authors Podcast. Do you want to explain it or should I?
ES: You’d probably do a better job.
ANDY RICHTER: It’s a podcast hosted by Paul F. Tompkins.
ES: Some people might remember him as a regular on HBO’s Mr. Show.
ANDY RICHTER: Only the right people.
ES: Not even worth mentioning that to the rest.
ANDY RICHTER: So Tompkins plays science-fiction author H.G. Wells, who uses his time machine to go back and do interviews with dead authors, which is probably the best possible use of a time machine.
ES: And Dickinson seemed ridiculous?
ANDY RICHTER: Ridiculous as in easy. I knew I could just throw on an old Jonathan Winters granny outfit and pass for her.
ES: I had no idea you wore a costume.
ANDY RICHTER: Yeah. The whole thing is done in front of an audience at the Upright Citizens Brigade [theater in Los Angeles]. I’m sure there are photos available somewhere. I made our poor wardrobe department [at Conan] put together a whole ensemble for me. I said, “Please get me a long black choir robe and some sort of lace collar and a gray wig.”
ES: And that was the extent of your research?
ANDY RICHTER: I may have read a few of Dickinson’s poems. But I don’t think I used any of it. I mostly made her some sort of uptight, repressed sexual weirdo. My version of her had nothing whatsoever to do with historical fact.
ES: You do improv pretty regularly on Conan. From what I know about improv, you need to have a lot of knowledge about everything. Are you constantly reading and watching TV, just to fill the well?
ANDY RICHTER: I really don’t. Anything that I read, I read because I’m interested in it. The only thing that I’ll occasionally do — and it sounds so much classier the way you’re putting it — I might do something like, “I guess I better watch the American Idolfinale, ’cause we might be doing a bit about it on the show, and then I can chip in.” For me it’s all about, “I better keep up on dumb-dumb culture.” And even then, I can’t do much of that stuff. I can’t watch a second of the goddamn Bachelor, regardless of how much they’re paying me.
