Ep. 55 – Writer Mike Stern – Broken Road Productions

In this episode I have the chance to speak with writer, actor and ex-Tom Cruise stand-in Mike Stern. I have always been impressed and just how much and how well Mike writes. There doesn’t seem to be a genre that he cannot do – film, television, comedy, horror, drama, suspense-thrillers, detective movies – and it’s inspirational to hear from someone working hard to break into Hollywood. He offers some really insightful points on honing your craft, and having the drive and work ethic so when the opportunity arises you are ready. Sometimes you even have to create those opportunities through unpaid internships at a production company, or paying a pretty-penny Read more

Ep. 54 – Writer’s Assistant Taylor Friedman – Fuller House

We had the awesome opportunity to talk to writer’s assistant Taylor Friedman, who gave us a really insightful view of the Fuller House writer’s room, the nitty-gritty work and attention to detail aspects of an assistant, and some really great thoughts on navigating the writer’s room and getting noticed for bigger opportunities with the staff. Fuller House writers have a really tough job creating something new in Fuller House, while still paying homage or respect to the original Full House.

Ep. 53 – Writers Curtis Cook and Subhah Agarwal – Jim Jefferies Show

In this episode we interview two writers from the political satire show The Jim Jefferies Show. Two stand up comedians, Curtis Cook and Subhah Agarwal, sound appreciative to work with the great comedian Jim Jefferies. Having the opportunity to watch an incredibly talented comedian Jim Jefferies churn out these amazing rants, jokes and take on US politics and world issues is a real eye-opener for Cook and Agarwal. This fun episode is filled with some really helpful advice on sometimes doing the things you don’t know will have a payoff, but with hard work and determination (also sheer grit, luck and a good manager) you can get some really awesome Read more

In our second interview we had the chance to sit down with comedian and writer Dan St. Germain.
