Patti Harrison Talks ‘Together Together’ and Bad Rom-Coms w/ Sam Sanders | It’s Been A Minute | NPR

Patti Harrison is known for bringing her absurd, caustic, yet charming comedy to supporting roles on shows like ‘Search Party,’ ‘Broad City’ and ‘Shrill’. But now, she’s in a starring role in the romantic comedy ‘Together Together.’ In it, Harrison plays a young single woman who agrees to be a gestational surrogate for a single man in his 40s, played by Ed Helms.

In the latest podcast episode of ‘It’s Been a Minute,’ Sam Sanders talks to Harrison about what it was like to play a role different from everything she’s done before, why ‘Together Together’ is even billed as a rom-com, and the quandary of representation as a trans woman.
