The Devil in the Diner

The concept that The Devil is walking among us everyday has long been a source of legends. What better place for him to spend his time than in a greasy spoon diner later at night.

Saturday Night Live writer Paula Pell’s telling of her experience of meeting The Devil in a diner in New York.

The audio in the above animated video by Zeke O’Donnel was taken from an excerpt of Episode 8 of Astonishing Legends Podcast in the video below.

In a similar vein is the Hulu produced series The Booth at the End.  The series takes place entirely inside a diner where a mysterious man makes deals with a slew of characters, making there deepest desires happen in exchange for them performing specific tasks.
