“I have insider Hollywood stories and a big mouth.. Public Speaking it IS!”
Plus, I’m fully retired from Hollywood, so I have no reason to flatter anyone. Makes for really fun audience Q/A.
I especially enjoy working in music/performance venues—a great concert piano, nice stage with lighting, sound, AV projection, and audience seating. Exhilarating.
Sometimes, during Q/A when folks ask about my fave Seinfeld memories, I’ll sit at the piano and accompany Mel Torme live—as I did in THE JIMMY episode. #gooddayatwork
