Phil Rosenthal

Posted by on Apr 1, 2013 in podcast | 5 Comments

Whoever came up with the phrase “nice guys finish last” never met Phil Rosenthal. The creator and executive producer of the 70-time Emmy-nominated “Everybody Loves Raymond” invites me into his home to discuss sitcoms, books, movies, and insane interviews with huge superstars. Phil has an amazing talent for clearly explaining otherwise complicated ideas. He is honest, straightforward, informative, entertaining, and an invaluable resource for writers of every level. If you’re somehow not a fan of Phil Rosenthal’s already, rest assured you will be within the next hour. And as soon as you’re done here, buy his book, “You’re Lucky You’re Funny,” and watch his documentary, “Exporting Raymond.” You’ll be glad you did. Listen on iTunes.
