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!
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).
Terry Motley (of Motley P.R.) just produced this nifty promo touting my REMEMBERING GROUCHO one-man show (and yes, that’s my voice in the video). Hopefully, it will lead to being booked at various colleges, clubs, companies, organizations, theatres, etc. hither and yon, so that I can share my Groucho stories and previously unseen home video of Groucho and me with people who will appreciate it.
I recently had the pleasure of appearing on Chicago’s “Dave & Dave” radio show, along with hosts Dave Weiser and Dave Niven (hence the name). Although they don’t archive their broadcasts once they’ve aired, they were fool…er…kind enough to share the file with me so’s I can share the show with you kindly-type folks. So here I am, yammering on about working for Groucho, writing RAISED EYEBROWS, how Rob Zombie and I got together, and hypothesizing about the upcoming filmic version of said memoir.
Forty-one years after “The Committee for the Rerelease of ‘Animal Crackers'” makes headlines in UCLA’s Daily Bruin, I’m back in the Bruin again!
For those who may be wondering how I crossed paths with the likes of Rob Zombie and ended up handing over the reins to my very personal story, I have penned this essay, which just appeared in the online edition of The Hollywood Reporter. I originally entitled it I Walked (And Talked) With A Zombie, but the editor explained that they had to go with a title whose key words would trigger the randomly generated algorithms or self-hating logarithms or some sort of newfangled whatchamacallits. At any rate, it’s a fuller explanation of how the RAISED EYEBROWS movie project came to be and why this may not be as outrageous an idea as it might seem.
