    This picture was taken before I knew I was going to be a character actor. Every disaster, at one point, looked like a success. Unfortunately, every success also can look like disaster. That’s why there are so many bars in New York.

2020 Bright Spot

Discovering this podcast was one of the few bright spots of 2020. Each day, I've allowed myself to listen to one episode: I look forward to them like I do my nightly wine! The photograph of Tobolowsky tells you everything you need to know about the man behind the content. Yes, he is mischevious and witty and personable. And he's lived a very interesting life. Accolades also to David Chen for such a high-quality "product." I'm recommending the podcast to all my fellow podcast addicts and his books to everyone else.

This is the best podcast

We always look for Tobo when we watch tv and movies now. He’s such a delight. If I could only listen to one podcast - this is the one I would choose.
