Welcome to an Encore presentation of Podcast #190. We got such an great response to it over the course of the week, I decided to re-post it for those of you who may have missed it.
In all honesty, I have to say of all 190 Podcasts we've done, this may be my favorite. Our main topic today: the sudden death of comedian Garry Shandling at the age of 66.
We invited Tom Delisle back again this week because he and Garry were friends and were a comedy writing team during many of years Tom lived in LA. Tom will explain their working relationship - and friendship - and how both came to an abrupt end when Tom gave an honest answer to a question asked by Garry during a phone call about two projected TV shows, "It's Garry Shandling's Show" and "The Larry Sanders Show".
He'll also explain why Garry didn't fear death - and in some ways looked forward to it - all due to a car accident he survived years ago.
And I'll tell you about a comedy bit that I saw on TV back in the early 60's that actually caused me to fall off the couch laughing... and, well, I tell the rest of story in the Podcast. (It's something I never had the nerve to tell on the air during all my years on the radio.)
Have a great weekend and I'll see you back here Monday!
