A chock-full episode!
Gary and Tony spend a CRAZY hour with Jackie Martling, and talk about his amazing, nearly 40-year career in comedy, including the Howard Stern years. Of course, it’s Jackie, so it’s jokes galore, AND this episode features the most “bleeped out” words of any show to date! PLUS, a bonus: the return of Oscar Santana to the show! Enjoy!
A discussion of the classic bad movie “The Thing with Two Heads” (which we mistakenly call “The MAN with Two Heads”); a discussion of Rosey Grier’s career goes seriously off the rails; Tony’s TV promo shoot; is reality TV the Death of Civilization?; reality TV shows WE’D like to see; Gary’s “Embarrassing Celebrity Moment” with Jane Fonda.
Our most jam-packed show EVER features comedian Chris Paul, who is brilliantly funny, and who tells us the funniest Elton John joke ever! Also, Gary’s friend Sam Ingraffia tells us of his bizarre encounter with Orson Welles; we celebrate Rob Ford Jr.’s birthday; we salute the late “Creeky” Creekmore, America’s oldest clown; we dissect “The Leftovers” and TV today; AND…we call a listener!
Tony and Gary switch voices; thoughts on Derek Jeter, Barbra Streisand, and Elvis; Tony’s new favorite song; Gary and Tony tell what it was like covering hurricanes for “Good Morning America”; and a NEW game!
On this show, we get to know Rob Ford Jr. a little better; also, an important update on Gary’s deodorant situation; plus, our Emmy Award winning special guest, Tom Bergeron, host of ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos”! Tom gives the hysterical inside scoop on those shows plus his time at “Hollywood Squares”, “Good Morning America”, FX’s “Breakfast Time”, and more! AND… Tony, Gary, and Robb in a battle of Beatles trivia!
An episode full of love, yet everybody is hurt in one way or another! Gary feels dissed by Mike O’Meara; Oscar Santana makes a cameo but feels rejected by Tony and Gary; Oscar and Robb Spewak spar. Featuring comedy producer and writer Jeff Penn, who joins in on the insults! Oh…and we have a fan club!
Tony and Gary talk with a real Renaissance man: Academy Award nominated actor Danny Aiello! Danny has a new memoir that will be out in October, called “I Only Know Who I Am When I Am Somebody Else”. Danny talks candidly about his career as a film, stage, and TV actor, his love of singing, his roles in movies like “Do the Right Thing” and “Moonstruck”, and his 40-year-plus friendship with Gary. It’s an AMAZING show!
“Tribute” to Joan Rivers; Gary’s “Cool Rush”; Trivia Games Galore; and in-studio guest Annie Yu, of Fox 5 News!
Legendary Broadcaster Charlie Gibson grants a rare, long-form interview on this episode of The Tony Perkins Show featuring Gary Stein. Gibson worked with Perkins and Stein from 1999-2005 on ABC’s Good Morning America alongside Diane Sawyer and Robin Roberts. Perkins and Gibson reminisce about compelling moments they shared at GMA (both good and bad) in a witty, yet honest tone that suggests (in the words of Charlie Gibson) “adversity builds collegiality”. Plus, YouTube music sensation Mike Massé!
