Al and I discuss writing and performing comedy for the stage and TV.
Al worked on a TV show with David Steinberg and does a great impersonation of Steinberg, on the set, calling for a lunch break.
He also mentions comedians who influenced him including Ronnie Corbett, Dave Alan, Tommy Smothers and Bob Newhart.
Al is a recovering alcoholic, who came out of the closet a few years ago and we discuss how that has influenced his comedy. Finally, he mentions how the careers of Burroughs and Bukowski inspire him.
