Garry Shandling, with his show "The Larry Shandling Show" absolutely ushered in the "Golden Age" of television.
What a creative, innovative and influential comedian. Only met him once, but he seemed very kind and sincere.
Happy 94th to the actor known as Alan Brady on his creation The Dick Van Dyke Show .... Carl Reiner!!!
When I saw the Dick Van Dyke show as a kid, I caught a glimpse of my life's pursuit... to work in comedy, to work in TV and to marry a perky brunette. Thank you Lord for all 3!
I am excited and honored to let you know that I have accepted the position of CEO of Mastermedia International. For over 30 years, the mission of MMI, led by founder Dr. Larry Poland, has been to be an up-lifting presence of Christian faith to the leaders of Hollywood and New York’s film and television communities. As I assume this role, I’m excited not only to continue this work, but also to serve the emerging generation of cinematic storytellers, created by the digital revolution.
Thank you all for your friendship and appreciate your prayers.
I had no idea that this was the original version and lyrics to Fun,Fun,Fun. So glad that Brian Wilson kept writing

With David Letterman ending his show after 30+ years, I spent the morning chatting with some of my wonderfully talented, kind friends on the Late Show staff back in New York. I had the pleasure and honor to help produce all of the shows that Dave did on the West Coast (LA & SF) as well as the many remote segments (ie. Biff Henderson at the Grammy’s, Dave’s Mom at the Olympics and Mandy Patinkin singing college fight songs in the shower). Here are my…

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being a guest on CONTEXT with Lorna Dueck. Context is a TV show produced in Toronto, Canada, so I was satellited in from an Orange County Studio. The episode was on COMEDY and the guests were Tom Shadyak (Director of Bruce Almighty), some unknown comic named Jim Gaffigan and me. Here's a few behind the scenes pics. w/ Dan Rupple

Specs O’Keefe In The Case Of The Missing First Love
This album was a compilation of the best of and extended versions from our radio show...The Isaac Air Show. Only 5 tracks because Specs O'Keefe took up almost a whole side (vinyl days, remember) and Squirrellie took up a lot of side one too.
One of my greatest comedy influences and certainly the primary inspiration for the comedy style of Isaac Air Freight was Stan Freberg. I first began listening to his records when I was about 10 years old. Soon I had every sketch, every record memorized. Freberg's most popular sketch was his 1953 Dragnet parody, St. George and the Dragonet...later the template for the Isaac Air Freight sketch Jerusalem Dragnet. In 1988, I had the pleasure of having Stan Freberg as a guest on the radio show I hosted with my life-long friend, Bob Bennett. He was a great guest and wonderful Christian man. As this article says, his unique style of parody set the course for what later became Saturday Night Live. God bless Stan Freberg.
Every year, 1st thing Easter morning, I play the Easter Song by Keith Green. Wonderful song of celebration. Happy Easter everyone!
