Welcome to episode 26.

So again, my apologies for the delay.  If you are interested in checking out my film, you can click on the link provided. I have also attached a link to the Kickstarter that I had started to raise funds for my film. If I can raise the needed funds, I can take my film out to Hollywood to begin the initial steps in making a feature film...I have 2 producers interested in making my movie. 

In this episode, the wife and I were visiting Washington DC and I had the opportunity to interview her best friend Janet's two boys... Elijah and Hugo.  We talk about their love of food, Legos, and how they get to eat sugar at a nature center later that day with their dad. Fun fact...Janet is the one who came up with the name of our podcast What The Fork.

Episode 23

Welcome back to What The Fork,

When you do a podcast about comedy and food, you enjoy each and every guest. Then once in a while you get a real treat when it comes to guests. On this episode I have guests Mark Lonow and his lovely wife Jo Anne Astrow. It was a pleasure to sit down, speak with them and listen to their stories. 

Mark discusses how he helped start the original Improv Comedy Club, his relationship to Budd Friedman, and how he one-upped Milton Berle.

Jo Anne talks about the time she worked with Andy Kaufman, Robin Williams sleeping on her floor, and how she appeared on The Johnny Carson Show.

Mark and Jo Anne have written, produced and directed a play called "Jews, Christians and Screwing Stalin". As Mark and Jo Anne have described it, it is a light comedy about dark Jews. I have added the website so you can access tickets. It will be playing at the Matrix Theatre on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles in August. Given their history in comedy, you will love their play.  

I also want to thank my guest co-host, comedian Gabe Kea. Always a pleasure to have him on the show.
