Steve discusses Groucho, the Marx Brothers, comedy, political correctness, censorship, and a host of other topics with behavioral scientist Peter McGraw.
Listen to Steve discussing RAISED EYEBROWS, Groucho, Dick Cavett, Gilbert Gottfried and more! He starts at 25:30 on this podcast.
Here’s the just-released and much-anticipated (by me anyway) sequel to my 2015 episode of Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast. Since it’s a mini-episode, it’s only about 40 minutes long. It’s not quite as, um, “freewheeling” as the first one, but I think there is still much merriment to be found herein. More talk about Groucho, the Marx Brothers, the upcoming film version of RAISED EYEBROWS, the new Blu-Ray set of Paramount Marx Brothers films, and general silliness. Gilbert had broken his ankle two days earlier and had just finished recording a lengthy podcast and wasn’t feeling as energetic as the first time ‘round, so his trusty sidekick, Frank Santopadre, did the lion’s share of the questioning (and did a splendiferous job thereof). Enjoy!
Steve Stoliar’s February 11, 2017 appearance on the “Erskine Overnight” podcast in which he discusses both the book and upcoming film versions of RAISED EYEBROWS, plus reminiscences about Groucho and the various luminaries he encountered during his years inside the Marx house.
Here’s an interesting article from the Los Angeles Times that discusses the film version of RAISED EYEBROWS as well as the Blu-Ray release of the Paramount Marx Brothers films and a few new books!
At long last, the brand-new CD version of the RAISED EYEBROWS: MY YEARS INSIDE GROUCHO’S HOUSE Audiobook (read and performed in its entirety by the author) exists in three dimensions rather than merely theoretically. It’s over eleven and a half hours of the complete book and it’s available on Amazon and Audible. Enjoy!
For those of you who have wished the RAISED EYEBROWS audiobook were available on CD rather than only as a digital download, there’s good news! At long last, Blackstone Audio is issuing RAISED EYEBROWS: MY YEARS INSIDE GROUCHO’S HOUSE in the CD format and it’s available for preorder on Amazon. To recap: It’s over eleven hours of the author, Steve Stoliar, reading the entire book and also doing all the voices contained therein. If you heard Steve on Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast, then you’ve heard some of his voices before. (And if you’re hearing voices as a rule, you should probably consult a psychiatrist.) Because various Spring catalogues and newsletters have already been set, it’s targeted for a Summer release, so the official availability date is June 14. Nevertheless, here’s the Amazon link. Thanks for listening – in more ways than one.
Here’s a fascinating and informative interview with Rob Zombie in which he discusses the how and why of his fascination with Groucho and the Marx Brothers, plus how the elements of the film version of RAISED EYEBROWS were assembled.
Here is my appearance on Gilbert Gottfried’s Amazing Colossal Podcast! It’s an hour and twenty-five minutes of rollicking good fun!
I’m on the show ostensibly to talk about RAISED EYEBROWS – the book and the upcoming film – and I do get to tell more than a few stories about my Groucho days, but I also do impressions (including duelling Old Grouchos with Gilbert). We also get into areas that some will doubtless find “of questionable taste.” Too bad. I had a blast.
It’s free and doesn’t require subscriptions or downloading of any software: Just click and play.
Writer-producer Mark Evanier, has deemed the promo for my REMEMBERING GROUCHO presentation worthy of a very nice write-up on his heavily followed blog, as well as reminding people of RAISED EYEBROWS and the fact that it is being made into a motion picture!
Awfully nice of him, I would say (and I just did).
