Every Family’s Got One (EFGO) is devoted to telling true family stories. There’s nothing like family. We see each other at our noblest and nastiest – across the dinner table, on the Disney cruise, at our cousin’s wedding, and other mundane backdrops of family life where emotions run wild – and the most entertaining often-told family stories are created. Hosted by funny people Barbara Herel & Tony Mennuto (of NBC’s sketch comedy group Live On Tape), EFGO brings you family stories, from amazing storytellers, that are hilarious, cringeworthy, and unexpected. If you had to pass along one family story, what would you tell?
