Comedian-writer-actor Paul Reiser reflects on a career that led him to work with the likes Peter Falk, Woody Allen, Barry Levinson and James Cameron, among others. That came after a near-miss of a career as a music composer. He also explains why a long, successful existence in show business is no protection from network-induced failure. This episode is sponsored by Sundance Selects and the new film Tabloid.

    Zippy, Marc has said he has problems with his "R"s.
    Speech impediment.

    I figure that's where the Earl/Errol thing comes in.

    Now stop making fun of the disabled!!!

    This was sadder than the Todd Hanson episode. I love Reiser but was disappointed with his delusional analysis of his latest project's failure. It was a horrible misuse of Andy Daly and stuffed cats. Of course I have a similar abhorrence of most of TV's success stories so perhaps he got it right after all.

    Great episode. Very funny stuff from both sides of the microphone and a shout out to Jan Murray! Love it.

    Marc, with this one and the Larson interview, you really have come into your own as a listener, and that is one of the most important things for an interviewer. Nicely done.

    I disagree with Fulci420 (maybe it's a spelling mistake actually).

    I thought Marc's letting him go let the interview happen. In the beginning I could tell he was maybe trying to figure out the interview and went on a bit..but you let it roll and then managed the interview from after the 1/3rd of the discussion. But his opening was also great and it really showed how smart and inherently funny Reiser is .. frankly I'd forgotten a bit.

    From beginning to end this was a very enjoyable listen of a talk between two smart, funny people and that's what I expect here.

    Good stuff Marc and Paul.

    I need to chime in - not to be sycophantic as I honestly don't care if Marc likes me or not, but just to be sincere and not have Fulci420's comment above be the only word on the subject in this comments section - that I think Marc's grown in to being a great interviewer. This wasn't the most amazing episode, but I'd hardly blame Marc for that, and it was a thoroughly entertaining listen.

    big fan of this podcast marc, but EARL Morris, dude? Really? Errol Flynn never had this problem.

    dont let the guests drone on endlessly marc! This was boring as shit because you so rarely interupted his incredibly boring and unfunny stories. This show has potential but so often I find myself zoning out because of your lack of ability to take charge as an interviewer.
