Comedian Frank DeCaro: "Pig in a Blanket Through a Cinder Block Wall"

DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Release Date: 01/04/2017

Dennis visits comedian, radio host, author and all-round delight Frank DeCaro at his San Fernando Valley apartment to talk about Frank's latest gig, opening for comedian Lisa Lampanelli on the road. He talks about the thrill of getting the offer, the first time he met Lampanelli and the intervention she staged that led to his recent dramatic weight loss. He shares how he's lost nearly 100 pounds, the thrill of fitting into a Versace shirt from the 90's and the emotional roots of his past overeating. He also talks about getting fired from Sirius/XM after 12 years, the best and worst part of being a correspondent on The Daily Show and his adventures in Sopranos-land when he was writing for TV Guide. Other topics include: working for Martha Stewart, giving bad hummers, Alan Arkin being a dick and the Bob Mackie design he wished he could own.
