Yay! Gonna get a drink and snack and watch this. Loved the previous one you guys did.

Great job, Ken. Thanks.

Troy McClure said...

That was terrific.

Everyone did a great job but special kudos to Suzyn Waldman and Mark Grant. I can actually picture them playing those roles for real, they're that good.

Please do the Room Service episode of Frasier next!

Nice touch having two Yankees announcers playing the two Mrs. LeBecs.

You said you were nominated for an Emmy for this episode but lost. Hopefully you'll win an Emmy for best TV Zoom reading this year for this episode and finally get your due.

I bet you don't run into too many priests named Josh Lewin. Couldn't resist.

Fun fact: Kevin Conroy the actor who played Daryl on Cheers has also famously voiced batman over the past 30 odd years in various media.
