Episode 26: From Stand-Up to Sit-Com--Transitioning from Stage to Screen

Ken discusses the transition between comedians to comedy writers, and interviews EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND writer, Tom Caltabiano.   Tom and Ray started in stand-up together and wound up sharing an apartment together along with Kevin James.  This episode has lots of great stories including an embarrassing one from Ken.  Then he reviews the new television show about stand-up comedy, I’M DYING UP HERE.  Also, your chance to see a live reading of one of Ken’s pilots, and hear how, for the sake of this podcast, he is probably going to humiliate himself.  You can’t miss that!


Listen to the Hollywood & Levine podcast!

LOVED this podcast. Everybody Loves Raymond is absolutely in my top 10 of all time.
It is rare in modern (post 80s) sitcoms where each episode has just 1 storyline (the A) that eventually brings in all the members of the cast.

If you talk with Tom again, would you ask him about this aspect?
