Untold Radio AM - Legendary Comedian Louie Anderson

UNTOLD RADIO AM

Iconic comedian Louie Anderson, a three­-time Emmy Award® winner, is one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics, named by Comedy Central as “One of 100 Greatest Stand­-Up Comedians of All Time.” His career has spanned more than 30 years. He is a best-selling author, star of his own standup specials and sitcoms and he continues to tour the country performing to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.In 2016 Anderson was cast to co­-star along with Zach Galifianakis and Martha Kelly in the hit FX comedy series Baskets. Anderson plays the extraordinary role of “Christine,” the matriarch of the Baskets clan. He based the character on his mother and his five sisters who were all a major presence in his life. Anderson won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series and a Critics’ Choice award for Best Supporting Actor In A Comedy Series for his role as “Christine Baskets” in 2016 and received a second Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series nomination for the role in 2017.“I’m not as nice in the character as my mom was as a person. It really is an extension of my mom,” Anderson says, adding that he always aims to make his performance “as real as possible” without affecting or cartooning it up. “It felt like it was divine intervention when I got the call to be on the show… that somehow my mom, from the great beyond, was finally getting herself into show business where she truly belonged in the first place.”Sharing the ups and downs of his childhood experiences as one of eleven children in Minnesota, Anderson crafted comedy routines that rang true for his early club audiences while reducing them to helpless fits of laughter, routines that led him from his career as a counselor to troubled children to the first­-place trophy at the 1981 Midwest Comedy Competition. Henny Youngman, who hosted the competition, recognized the diamond-­in­-the-­rough genius of the young comic and hired him as a writer, providing invaluable experience that soon put Anderson in his own spotlight on comedy stages all over the country.Johnny Carson, the comedy icon for generations of rising stars, invited Anderson to make his national television debut on the The Tonight Show in 1984 and the rest is history. Appearances with Jay Leno, David Letterman and on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comic Relief, Showtime and HBO specials followed. He hosted the legendary game show Family Feud making Anderson a household name and opening doors for him as an actor.Anderson has guest ­starred in sitcoms like Grace Under Fire and dramas like Touched by an Angel and Chicago Hope. He has had memorable featured roles in film comedies like Coming to America opposite Eddie Murphy, and the classic Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. In 2013 he took a dive on the ABC reality series Splash where he conquered his own fears while becoming an inspiration of hope. His standup special Big Baby Boomer premiered on CMT in 2013.In 1995 Anderson put his creative energies to work on the Saturday morning animated series Life with Louie. The long-­running series based on Anderson’s own childhood and his life with his father won three Humanitas Prizes for writing on a children’s’ animated series, making him the only three­-time recipient of this award. The series was nominated for Outstanding Special Class Animated Program and Anderson won two Emmys for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.His best-selling books include Dear Dad – Letters From An Adult Child, a collection of alternately touching and outrageous letters from Anderson to his late father, Good­bye Jumbo…Hello Cruel World, self-help for those who struggle with self-esteem issues and The F Word, How To Survive Your Family.Louie’s most recent book, Hey Mom (April 2018 Simon and Shuster) combines wry wit and poignant humor while sharing his journey of turning life’s challenges into joy as well as plenty of wisdom he’s gained from his late mother.Anderson has been channeling his beloved mom in his iconic stand-up comedy for decades—but she passed away before getting to see him reach new heights and win an Emmy for his breakout role playing her on Baskets. Hey Mom is Anderson’s way of catching her up on everything that has been going on in his life, including his continued struggles with food, drugs, gambling, depression and the recent spotlight for his role as Christine Baskets. Hey Mom also has plenty of laugh-out-loud stories about his incredibly resilient mother and his ten siblings.When not in production Anderson continues to tour, traveling the States doing what he loves to do: Stand-Up Comedy. Anderson again delivers to his fans his inimitable brand of humor and warmth.

Life Lessons with Entertainment Legend... Louie Anderson

Emma’s Bunker with Emma Willmann

Today, I’m lucky to be joined by iconic comedian Louie Anderson, the three-time Emmy Award® winner, one of the country’s most recognized and adored comics; named Comedy Central as “One of 100 Greatest Stand-Up Comedians of All Time.” His career has spanned more than 30 years. He is a best-selling author, star of his standup specials and sitcoms, and he continues to tour the country performing to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Louie goes deep and spits straight wisdom during this episode. Louie is positive leaning – he says it’s because of his years of therapy. In therapy, he realized that he should have been a lot nicer to his parents. Even if your relationship is one-sided, give them the time that they have given you. Believe it or not, your parents are waiting for a thank you. Forgiveness and gratitude can bring you great happiness. However, you should never feel pressure to feel happy all the time. In reality, we need to focus on having hope. If you’re alive, then the hope is there. As I said, Louie goes deep! Stay tuned as Louie reveals his must-watch TV picks, the importance of a morning routine, and how to let things go. We also talk about: Beating Dolly Parton for the Family Feud Hosting gig What it was like to open for Dolly Parton Why you need to spend time with your parents while you still can The importance of therapy and navigating resentment Why we need to lean into serendipity How to find a beneficial morning routine Getting arrested for a snowmobile incident Quotes from Louie Anderson: “When you’re successful, you can’t complain about things not going your way.” “Talk to somebody about what you’re going through.” “You can’t be too prepared to become famous.” “I don’t take a call until I have peace and grace in my heart.” Louie Anderson: https://louieanderson.com Twitter: https://twitter.com/louieanderson Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LouieAnderson/ YouTube: http://bit.ly/2iYn8xU Book: http://heymomthebook.com --- This episode is sponsored by Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast: https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/emmasbunker/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/emmasbunker/support--- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/appSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/emmawillmannshow/support
