The Tony Perkins Show

Joining the guys live, in-studio this week is BRUCE VILANCH, one of the most revered comedy writers in Hollywood! Most know Bruce from his years as one of the “squares” on the Tom Bergeron-hosted “Hollywood Squares”, but what some of you may not know is he has been the head writer for the Academy Awards since 2000, and was one of the main writers for years before that. The great bits and hilarious adlibs that the hosts have performed at the Oscars, the Emmys, and the Tony Awards? Chances are, Bruce wrote the jokes. Bruce was also a hit on Broadway, starring as Edna Turnblad in the long-running musical Hairspray. His stories could fill a book, and soon will! He is funny and revealing here; wait until you hear the role he played in the penultimate episode of “The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson”!

PLUS: A tribute to the late, great Kevin Meaney.

Tony and Gary pull back the curtain on what it takes to put on a live show like the ones they've done at The DC Improv; it's funny, but it ain't pretty!

Here it is, Tony and Gary's SECOND sold-out live taping at the DC Improv Comedy Club!  The guys are joined by special guest and show favorite Angela Stribling, of Sirius/XM and WHUR-FM's "Pillow Talk with Angela Stribling", and she tries to answer listener questions about relationships, sex, and romance.  Needless to say, Tony and Gary tend to get in the way!  Also: Rob Ford's birthday celebration; "Things Jews Can't Use"; and a surprising impression from Tony.  What a fun night; we thank all of you who came out to the show!

This week, we present an encore presentation of our first appearance at the DC Improv, from April of this year.  For those of you who can't make it to tonight's sold out show, it'll give you a taste of what our live show is like; for those of you coming to the show, it'll get you in the mood for tonight!
But FIRST, in an all new segment, Gary tells the guys about a recent trip to Times Square.  The story will leave you wondering, "WHY does Gary's mind work the way it does....or doesn't?!"  Enjoy!

In this show, the guys review, debate, and argue about Rolling Stone magazine's "Top 100 TV Shows of All-Time" list. You won't believe which shows made it, and which ones didn't!
Plus, Gary has an update to his invitation to Tony to go camping; we announce a special guest for our upcoming, sold out LIVE show at the DC Improv; Gary goes to the gym, with predictable results; and a segment we're now calling "REAL Comics", this time featuring a great bit from the always funny comedian Gary Gulman.  It's ANOTHER jam-packed show!
