Carvey Documentary Failure Success

The documentary Too Funny to Fail, Josh Greenbaum’s hilarious documentary is getting some exciting notices in the press. The doc focuses on The Dana Carvey Show, which was a failure by network standards, but a cult hit among comedy fans…some of whom include Bill Hader and Jerry Seinfeld!

You can read some great reviews in The New Yorker,  Time, The New York TimesEntertainment Weekly, and the very funny film was featured on NPR’s Fresh Air

The pic below is from the episode sponsored by Mountain Dew. Rave reviews followed from all those outlets after the release.

Dana Carvey: What does that look like to you? Bill Chott: Liquid Sunshine.

We were not kind to our sponsors, and that’s one of the many reasons why the show pushed the boundaries for what was acceptable on network TV in 1996. It was so great to hear some stories of the battles going on between our producers and the network, which had recently been acquired by Disney. It explains a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that was off my radar.

Thanks for your support. If you have a question about the Dana Carvey show that I can answer, I’ll give it my best shot. Might be wise to save us both some time and watch the documentary first.

Conversations Live

I was on Conversations live with Cyrus Webb on iHeart Radio this week. We talked about my current social media success on TikTok and Instagram. As well as the opportunity to connect with fans and do shoutouts on Cameo. Click HERE to listen.

Young Sheldon & Repo Radio

Odd combination, right? You’ll be surprised to hear me mention it in this interview, but now that it’s on IMDb, I think I can finally tell you that I’ll be on Young Sheldon this Thursday the 21st on CBS. Unless my scene is cut, you’ll see me as the Dean of Sheldon’s college. Till then you can hear about it in this interview.

When you visit Lou Pizzaro (Operation Repo) on Repo Radio anything can happen. You’ll even see some behind the scenes talk that will never be on Repo Radio. I’ll post a link to that soon. Look for it on https://www.reporadio.com/ 6am and 6pm. Drive time. No pun intended.

We’re live! I’ll be on later tonight.
