Brilliant. Hysterical. Dangerous. Those three words best sum up veteran character actor Lewis Stadlen. A two time Tony nominee, Lewis has seen it all and has worked with the best. His many credits include Minnie’s Boys, the 1974 revival of Candide, the 1996 revival of A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, The Producers, Guys and Dolls, plus four Neil Simon premieres. And, now, Lewis sits down with Rob and Kevin to look back on his journey; unedited and unfiltered. Lewis pulls back the curtain on his career, including how he fought the Prince of Broadway, what it was like getting direction from Mel Brooks, and why Nathan Lane moonlights as Lewis’ agent! Also, Lewis shines the spotlight on Shelley Winters, Neil Simon, and Groucho Marx!
