    BONUS: “Beware Of The Baby Dump” w/ Pat Thornton

    Dan is joined by actor and comedian Pat Thornton to discuss the joys of early fatherhood, what it's like to perform stand-up for 24 hours straight, Kevin Sorbo's questionable improv skills, the post-quarantine future of the comedy business, dads who refuse to change diapers and the importance of saying no to other parents who want to pass their old baby stuff on to you.



    But perhaps most importantly, Dan asks about the adorable #LarryLooks photo series, where (styled impeccably by crafty mom Maggie) Pat's son dresses up as different celebrities. This fun social media project has become a sensation, bringing much needed entertainment to tons of people as they navigate our current unsettling reality. If you could use a pick-me-up, Larry, Maggie and Pat have got your back.



    Check out Pat's starring role in the hilarious Filth City and his new comedy album Dumb Phone Calls.
