Anthony Melchiorri from “Hotel Impossible”

Anthony and I chatted about the upcoming new season of “Hotel Impossible” on the Travel Channel, how to get a great hotel deal online, and why, when given the choice, you should always select the “no bedbugs” option.


Rory Scovel from TBS’s Ground Floor

Rory called in to talk about his work on “Ground Floor” and also wanted to discuss his cool new vinyl-only comedy album, recorded live at Jack White’s studio.



Alan Thicke

Alan Thicke, your TV pal, called into the show to share his “Thicke’s Picks” for last-minute holiday gifts.  We also talked hockey, twerking and late-night cable TV ads.

Joe Lo Truglio

Joe Lo Truglio has been creating unique and memorable characters for more than 20 years.  His latest is as Detective Charles Boyle on Fox’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” We talked about working with a great ensemble cast, the secret weapon of the show, and my suggestion for the next great guest star  (SPOILER ALERT:  A member of “Stella” that’s not Michael or Michael).


Michael Ian Black

Ever since I first saw him on “The State” in the mid-90s, Michael Ian Black has been one of my favorite comedy performers.  We discussed his work in “Stella” and his new show on TBS, “Trust Me, I’m a Game Show Host.”   Winners receive $240 worth of pudding.
