    Stephen Tobolowsky was delightful and charming, and this interview was delightful and charming. Really hope to see more interviews like this with folks not necessarily involved in comedy. It seems to lead to Marc drawing out surprising, engaging stories and conversation with the guests. Thanks.

    Great interview and talk about some great stories - More like this please! Keep spreading out and continue to interview interesting people outside of the comedy world.

    I was laughing, mildly offended, humbled, saddened and yeah, more than a little skeptical. To hell with it...I love that this guy I know from here and there and always enjoyed, but didn't really know, turns out to be way more captivating than a lot of the stars who overshadow him in Hollywood. Looking forward to checking out Tobolowsky's podcast too!

    Phenomenal interview. Tobolowsky has led such a facinating life and has the amazing ability to communicate his stories. It did cross my mind that he mught be a pathological liar.;)

    Holy shit was that a great interview! I've always liked Steven's work, but never really knew much about him. Played with Stevie Ray Vaughn?!? That alone is cool as fuck! The rest of it was just icing.
    Nice job Marc.

    Who knew Needlenose Ned was so damned interesting! Both you guys are great storytellers.

    Tobolowsky can talk the hind leg off a donkey, loved this episode. I'm inclined to believe there's little hyperbole. (Does that make me like Marc's dad? Well, I'd rather be acceptic than a sceptic.) Stephen's Birthday Party is an odd little home movie, again many great stories, although the guests gathering to kneel at his feet at take succor from his storytelling is rather odd. Can't blame them, though!
    The near-death experience on Birthday is one with a shark... or not. Glad you're still alive, Stephen!

    I like how Tobo casually tossed out how his first girlfriend had an abortion and how it screwed up their relationship. Fuck, that dude talks about anything.

    Stephen Tobolowsky is the anti-Gallagher.

    Torn on this one. I appreciate Tobo (Sneakers was great) but like his stories in small doses. The continual output of interesting tales about anything and everything sends my skeptic meter to eleven. Not to say he's not being honest but it makes for an uneasy listening experience.

    Great interview. So very interesting to get a better idea of this guy after seeing him everywhere for so long.
    Man, did it suck to actually get up and go to my front door when I heard the doorbell ring on your end, Marc.

    I'll finish what he was saying, "In our schools, the heads of every dept. are insanely in favor of every kind of censorship available.

    Another thing, Clan ID cards, I thought the whole point of the hoods is that you AREN'T proud of how you choose to behave in our society.

    To me, Stephen will always be Sammy Jankis from Memento.

    He's a little off on the Trey Wilson/Miller's Crossing thing though: Wilson was going to play the role that Albert Finney would up doing.

    I recognized the actor as soon as I heard his voice. Now I'll remember his name, Stanley Tobolowsky.

    I love Story. Loved this podcast -- so many stories!

    Hooray!

    Great to hear from Needlenose Ned - he plays a great bad guy. Very entertaining stories but he certainly does rabbit-on doesn't he? As for his use of the word 'colored' - i find it hard to believe that people still get bent out of shape over that one. Man, i hate political correctness.

    "Needlenose Ned"? "Ned the Head"? C'mon, buddy. Case Western High. Ned Ryerson: I did the whistling belly-button trick at the high school talent show? Bing! Ned Ryerson: got the shingles real bad senior year, almost didn't graduate? Bing, again. Ned Ryerson: I dated your sister Mary Pat a couple times until you told me not to anymore? Well?

    i saw Mississippi Burning cause of this podcast.
    The man has interesting stories to tell. Good chemistry

    It's sad to see the premise of this taught hatred still exists.

    it will always exist.
    People need something to fight for, its a way to not deal with their shitty lives and fucked up personalities.

    Yum. Banana cream pie. I would have eaten that piece.

    Wow, what a positive episode! Between the banana cream pie story and Tobolowsky's awesome tales, I'm feeling pretty shiny after sitting through this one, Marc.

    BTW, Tobolowsky: "Colored" is not the preferred nomenclature. Black, or African American, dude.

    Another excellent podcast. BING!

    What a colourfully Zelig-like knack this actor has for meeting people. Incidentally, the wonderfully Vaughan Brothers album he refers to is called Family Style.

    Hey, it's... that guy! Really interesting character (pun intended), uplifting interview, nicely done.

    Awesome episode! I have to admit, I do get a little nervous when I see non-comedian guests. But I'm a huge Tobolowski fan, and this was a great interview and great break from the norm!

    YES! I wanted to suggest you to talk with Stephen for ages, yours and his are the ONLY podcasts I listen to, he's an spectacular storyteller, I haven't listened to this one yet but I'm sure it's amazing.

    It's Tobolowsky, and his podcast is one of the finest you'll hear. This episode gives you a good taste of it: http://www.slashfilm.com/the-tobolowsky-files-bonus-ep-faq/
