The Tony Perkins Show

This episode presents the first-ever "Tony Perkins Show Featuring Gary Stein" recorded in front of a LIVE audience!  This is the exclusive recording of the SOLD OUT show, as it happened at the famous DC Improv on Saturday night, April 23rd.  Tony, Gary, Rob Ford, and even intern Adrian Garcia were ALL firing on all cylinders, and the audience was fantastic.  It is an uproarious episode, and we can't wait to do ANOTHER live show!

This episode features hysterical, special guest appearances from ROBB SPEWAK ("The Mike O'Meara Show"), and comedian ROB MAHER ("The Rob and Joe Show").  Enjoy!

P.S. Thanks to everyone who came out for the show, and a BIG thank you to the folks at The DC Improv!

Despite the title of this week's show (as usual, you'll have to listen to get it), much of the episode is spent paying tribute to and celebrating the music of Prince. Tony sheds light on what made him so special, and the guys weigh in on the old "Prince vs Michael Jackson" debate. PLUS, Gary and Tony talk to and get insight from Hollywood public relations giant Michael Levine, who represented both Prince and Michael Jackson, as well as David Bowie, Barbra Streisand, George Carlin, and MANY others.
ALSO: A tribute to the late, great Doris Roberts ("Everybody Loves Raymond"); jazz singer (and Gary's wife) Sarah Partridge stops by to tell us about her exciting new project; and Gary battles a hand dryer!
Despite the tributes, this episode offers LOTS OF LAUGHS!
