No people like show people

I just filmed an episode of the HBO show "Big Love," and had fun with Bill Paxton, as he told me many stories of his past, including sneaking onto a set to watch me shoot a scene many years ago, and I drove from there to The Comedy and Magic Club in Hermosa Beach, my favorite place on earth, filled with my favorite people. Larry Miller was working in the show with me, and Garry Shandling was getting a ream of new jokes ready for upcoming T.V appearances. My friends, the talented comedians Brian McKim and Traci Skene were there, as well as Brian Gillis, the world's greatest magician, and a young lady named Lindsay who did a silent and theatrical juggling act that brought the house down. It was a beehive of show biz activity with people going on and coming offstage, and Larry Miller, overtaken by the wonderful energy of it all, just leaned back in his chair, smiled and said "By God, this is cool."
I couldn't agree more, Larry.
Love from Wilson World,

Always got Bill Paxton and Bill Pullman mixed up.

I wonder who Tom's going for - the Phillies or Dodgers? One's his hometown; the other is his adopted hometown.

It was rather interesting for me to read that blog. Thanks for it. I like such themes and anything that is connected to this matter. I would like to read a bit more soon.

I was SURE I had seen you on "Big Love" this past Sunday! My wife thought I was crazy. Of course, I don't think that's an infrequent occurrence. Great job on the guest spot. When are you gonna come back to Zanies in Nashville?
