In episode 40 I talk to actor, comedian, director, producer, and writer Matt Besser about one of his mentors, the late great Del Close, an American actor, writer, and teacher who coached many of the best-known comedians and comic actors of the late twentieth century.

Episode 16: He Got Dirty (with guest Matt Besser)

The Phoney & Call-y Podcast

Behold, a horrifying ordeal that begins with the fellas re-recording the start of the episode because they had a terrible, un-airable fight, the first time around. They make up and sort of blame it all on holiday stress and low, winter light. Also, Tony has been highly-frustrated, of late, by a cell phone golf game. They do a tense NORAD missile-defense scene, and then Matt Besser enters the fray to talk about fantasy football, how he doesn’t like hugs, and how HE GOT COVID ON CHRISTMAS! Tony & Johnny are beyond disgusted and make certain to let Matt know how dirty they think he is. This episode actually gets more upbeat as it goes!
