Living On A Jet Plane

The first time we had Mark Malkoff on the show, he was sleeping in an Ikea while exterminators fumigated his New York apartment of roaches.

Well Malkoff recently fumigated himself of something else — a fear of flying. His method: living on an airplane for 30 days straight. On today's show Scott talks with the comedian about his latest challenge, which earned him a world record for taking the most scheduled flights in a month — 135.

Malkoff documented the adventure on his Web site, (AirTran was his benefactor and sponsor). Here are a couple of the video highlights — including a highly scientific airborne pastime (ever heard of the Toilet Paper Experiment?) and a desperate pursuit of cleanliness.
