Arthur Meyer is a writer and performer on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and the proud co-author of the fake menu “FUDS,” which he, Dan Klein, and Kelly Hudson lovingly crafted into the book, “FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia“.
Arthur and I somehow manage to shove aside the obvious sexual tension and get to know each other on a personal and professional level. We talk about early jobs, performing in clubs, and stalking major league umpires – all the usual stuff. But most importantly, Arthur gives us some quality first-hand knowledge of what it takes to get a book not only written, but actually published. It ain’t easy, but if that’s your goal, hopefully this episode will help you accomplish that.
In addition to his Tonight Show job, Arthur continues to write and perform with the sketch comedy groups Pangea 3000 and Two Fun Men, but his biggest credit will always be as a member of the three-sibling Wilmette, Illinois living room-based sketch comedy show “Meyer Kids’ Night”, performed to his parents weekly.
