God & Other Delicacies

A man of devout Jewish faith; witnessing a miracle on Google; the anti-semitism he suffered in high school; coming into a deeper faith and love of God as an adult; Jeff and Nick's mutual affection for each other and their time on Trial & Error; and the many laughs that come when we hang out together.  Jeff Astrof (Writer/Producer on Friends, New Adventures of Old Christine, Trial & Error) visits the show and he and Nicholas promptly begin lavishing praise on their beloved, canceled series, Trial & Error.  Jeff shares about being low on the popularity totem pole in high school, as well as the anti-semitism he suffered, and how he overcame both of those challenges (Answer: He brings an extra pair of pants).  Jeff also describes witnessing a miracle on Google.  Jeff is a devout believer, and his love for God is palpable.  Jeff's feelings about Nicholas referring to him as acerbic?  Also... palpable.  Something I didn't know: A LOT about Jewish history.  Jeff's Instagram: @jeffsastrof Twitter: @nicholasdagosto #GodsDelicateShow Instagram: @nicholasdagosto #GodsDelicateShow  Official Website: nicholasdagosto.com Music by Sean Whalen, Art by Alexandra Delano    Interview Originally Recorded at Brigade Radio One Studios

obSETHed with: TV SHOWRUNNER JEFF ASTROF

obSETHed

This is a super special episode. Jeff Astrof has written for many shows. Including FRIENDS. (I just name dropped a little. Sorry.)We met on the set of the series he created, TRIAL AND ERROR,  which quickly became one of my favorite TV comedies. It's unlike anything I had ever seen on network television, and I knew I had to discuss it with him. He was kind enough to allow me into his office on the Warner Brothers lot in Los Angeles and really open up to us about his career, his show, working with Actors and Casting Directors, and so much more. I am now an even bigger Jeff Astrof fan then I was at the outset.
