Legendary Hollywood character actor Stephen Tobolowsky (the 66th dinner interviewee) is also a great storyteller, writing two books of anecdotes about his fascinating life and career. He also shares tales from his past on The Tobolowsky Files, a podcast that took a hiatus starting in June 2017 but recently returned and is now updating regularly with episodes recorded during the coronavirus pandemic.
I’ve started listening to the latest updates and each one is a gem well worth your time. And if you prefer your storytelling done visually, Stephen is also on YouTube where he’s posting (also recorded pre-pandemic) performances telling some of his stories.
And while you’re here, check out my two-part interview with Stephen from October 2014. In part one, he talked about his lengthy acting career that includes notable roles like the needy insurance salesman Ned Ryerson in Groundhog Day. And in part two, he explained the origins of his storytelling and why he enjoys sharing his adventures and the lessons that he’s learned from them.
