Jeff Garlin's new podcast, By the Way, in Conversation with Jeff Garlin is off to a rousing start.
He has a sitdown extended chat with one guest live at Luna Lounge. First two episodes were Larry David [naturally] and Lena Dunham the day after the Golden Globes.
Garlin's not everyone's cup of tea [his primary claim to fame outside of Curb Your Enthusiam these days is irritating the **** out of Doug Benson, all in jest, for taking over his Doug Loves Movies episodes, particularly when teamed up with E-Trade Baby TJ Miller, . . . Denver YEAH!!!], but he can bring the funny when he wants to.
All Redd [Foxx] did all day was coke, grass and ****. . .
So our first network taping, name in big letters right on the set, Redd doesn't arrive at curtain call.
I go back to his dressing room, all I see is the girl doing his hair is sitting on him.
So I see her body, her dress, and his legs.
I say, Redd, don't you know we're on camera?
Redd sticks his head up from between the hairdresser's legs and asks indignantly. . .
"Can't a man relax?"
