Rick Overton Is Making It All Up

Classic Conversations

Considered one of the greatest comedic minds of our time Rick Overton performed hours of improv with Robin Williams. Rick has been entertaining us for decades. Rick currently is showing off his Improv mastery in his Set List comedy special. An hour of improvised comedy that will amaze you and keep you rolling with laughter. Rick and I talk about Jonathan Winters and Rick's decades-long friendship with Robin Williams. Rick shares some great personal stories and on-stage stories with Robin. Rick shares his life journey to becoming a comedian and improv master that started with his very musical family. Rick made George Burns laugh at an early age and that cemented his road to being an entertainer. We discuss the importance that 'Evening at the Improv' played during the comedy boom and Rick's one and only time on the Tonight Show when Joan Rivers was the guest host. There's more to the Joan River's story, but you'll have to listen. Rick also shares an amazing story about working with Andy Kauffman as Andy was in the early development of the Tony Cliffton character. Rick shares some great behind-the-scenes stories of working on the Dennis Miller show (for which he won an Emmy). Rick also shares some stories about his iconic TV and movie appearances in "Willow," "Mrs. Doubtfire," "The Office" (Pam's father), and "Seinfeld" (The Drake). Listen in for a ton of more stories from one of the funniest people around, Rick Overton.
