I first met Jeffrey Gurian at the HBO Aspen comedy festival in 1995. Back then I was chasing the devil's flame in New York with Mitch Helberg 1998-1999, Jeffrey was there many times hanging out with us after shows and keeping notes on the exotic wild life he was observing.
His history in comedy is remarkable considering that he started out as a dentist who wrote jokes for Milton Berle, Joan Rivers, Rodney Dangerfield and Dice Clay. He has been around the business for so long many comedians say if you don't know Jeffrey Gurian you are not a real comedian.
Not only do I know him, he was kind enough to let me stay with him in his penthouse apartment on the Upper East side last year when I visited New York.
He is a regular contributor to The Bennington program on Sirius XM and he also covers all the latest happenings in the comedy world at comedymatterstv.com and his red carpet coverage of major comedy events can be seen at youtube.com/GurianNewsNetwork
In life there are not many true friends that will let you stay at their homes and keep you filled up with love and thoughtfulness but that is exactly the kind of friend he is to me and that is why it is my pleasure to present to you now the one and only Jeffrey Gurian!
This episode was recorded in New York City.
