Not My Job: Comedian Jeff Garlin Gets Quizzed On The IgNobels

Jeff Garlin poses for a portrait at the Tribeca Grand Hotel during the 5th Annual Tribeca Film Festival, April 28, 2006, in New York City.

Jeff Garlin is a Chicago-born comedian who became well-known playing Larry David's manager on Curb Your Enthusiasm. He's got a new sitcom on ABC called The Goldbergs and a new film, Dealin' with Idiots, which he wrote, directed and stars in.

Every year, the Journal of Improbable Research gives out its IgNobel Prizes, for groundbreaking scientific research into important but neglected (and sometimes ridiculous) areas of knowledge. It just held its 2013 ceremony in Cambridge, Mass., so today we'll ask Garlin three questions about IgNobel prize winners.
