You might know Jeff Lewis from The Guild, Hail Caesar! or even my web series "Dads in Parks", but after this podcast, you'll remember him from the craziest stories you've ever heard. Vasectomies, illicit drug use and doughnut delivery, getting hit and dragged by a car, the horrors of childbirth, and mushrooms. This was the first podcast I ever did as a pilot for my Howl podcast and it's funny to look back on how it all began. Jeff is hilarious as always and will definitely be back to update these stories. His honesty is a virtue to behold...and laugh at.
You definitely know Dean Cameron. He was "Chain Saw" in "Summer School". Yes, that guy. From "Ski School" and "Ski School II, Electric Boogaloo"? Yes, that's him. His credit list is amazing, NCIS, Men at Work, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Straight Outta Compton...but his life is even crazier. From early success with Carl Reiner directing his first film, to doing dinner shows in Vegas as a Wizard, to rising like a phoenix, and now becoming one of Hollywood's go to character actors. "Chain Saw" is now a father. Come along for one of my fave rides as Dean shares stories of shooting a zombie film with a pre-"Friends" Matt LeBlanc, conning an internet con artist from Nigeria out of money (true story), and growing up with 5 different fathers in his life. How is that possible? You'll have to listen. It's insane.
Comedian and Writer, Brian Kiley, is an anomaly in Hollywood. An Irish Catholic family guy who's had the same job in entertainment for 23 years. And also one of the nicest guys in town. He's appeared on late night TV (The Tonight Show) as a comic many times and had a Comedy Central half hour special, but he's been a staff writer and now head monologue writer for Conan O'Brien... for 23 years.This will become obvious when you hear his stories. Growing up in Boston with a father who served in the Battle of the Bulge, Brian is a pro at taking real life stories and making them really funny. From teaching kids to drive, to dropping your kids off at college, to having the Red Sox collapse coincide with your Dad's death, Brian's stories of life are sincere, honest and truly funny. Enjoy!
Comic and Dad, Eddie Pence joins me for this episode of Father Time where we discuss the fear of having twins, latch-key kids, safe words, government jobs, why to never try heroin, cussing about "Frozen", the ramifications of kicking your father in the ass, and why to never shoot for the stars because physically they are impossible to reach. Despite our biting sarcasm, Eddie's a great dad who shares honest stories of trying to raise kids in today's world.
You may know Alex from her run on MAD TV where she played Ms. Swan among other characters, or as Lois Griffin, the matriarch on "Family Guy", or as Dawn on the hit HBO series, "Getting On", but today you'll know her as a loving and ridiculously funny Mom to two beautiful children. And yes, the show is called Father Time, but when you have a chance to chat with one of today's best comedic actresses, you take it. Plus, sometimes it is necessary to be reminded just how stupid we dads are. And trust me, Alex definitely does that. My huge thanks to her for coming on the show and I know you'll enjoy her candid take on parenthood.
