Comedian John Hodgman knows more than all of us combined. For example, he knows that JP Morgan had the power to levitate, and that all currency will one day be replaced with beef jerky. He also knew that the world was going to end on December 21st, 2012, which he wrote about in great detail in his 2011 compendium of world knowledge, That is All.

And that’s the last time we spoke to Hodgman — better known by some as Judge John Hodgman, after his highly-hilarious podcast. By this point, you’ve probably figured out that his wealth of knowledge is actually all made up, and since the world didn’t end on December 21st, 2012, what is John Hodgman doing with himself now? Well for one, he’ll be performing at the Wilbur Theatre tomorrow night.

Guest

John Hodgman, comedian and correspondent for The Daily Show.
