Descent Into The Dahl Archives – October 20, 2012
You’re probably used to seeing Chris Elliott recently as Lily’s dad on Tami Sagher’s “How I Met Your Mother” (though in real life, he’s former SNL star Abby Elliot’s father). Well, this week’s Descent into the Archives takes you back to 1991, when Elliot had his own bizarre, underappreciated and ultimately highly influential sitcom, “Get A Life.”
The funnyman is in studio with Steve & Garry at AM1000 and he opens up about his childhood and about his father Bob Elliott, who was one half of the legendary “Bob and Ray” radio duo (he was the “Bob” half).
Chris also shares stories with Steve & Garry about his days as a writer for David Letterman and the cast of idiot characters he created for the show, and talks about the book he wrote, the pseudo celebrity tell-all autobiography, “Daddy’s Boy”.
