We were joined on the Popternative show by Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, The Office) and Zach Cherry (Severance, Duncanville) who co-host the new Roku Original series special The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday. The six celebrity contestants include SNL cast member Chloe Fineman, Oscar-winner Nat Faxon, Emmy-nominee D’Arcy Carden, Social Media star Liza Koshy, Superbowl winner Marshawn Lynch, and comedian Joel Kim Booster.

In our interview, Ellie and Zach tell us what it was like to host this celebrity holiday baking showdown, comparing hosting to acting, and much more. Zach notes how it’s interesting to work on shows where the audience is passive like The Great American Baking Show, and on active ones like Severance on AppleTV+ which he finds refreshing. Ellie tells us about working on projects like this and The Office which never really have a shelf life.

Watch the interview with Ellie Kemper and Zach Cherry below.

The Great American Baking Show: Celebrity Holiday is now available on The Roku Channel.
