Paul Scheer on Tragedy Plus Time Equals Comedy

You know Paul Scheer from comedies too numerous to mention – “The League,” “Veep,” and his long-running podcast “How Did This Get Made?” being just a few of my favorites. But as Paul tells us in his honest and hilarious new book, “Joyful Recollections About Trauma” (available May 21st everywhere), things were not always a laugh riot. Paul discusses raising his own kids while coping with a traumatic past, growing up without rules, dating a coworker (spoiler alert: she became his wife), and telling a difficult story with integrity and humor.

Julia stops by to talk about (and demonstrate!) her new line of shapeware, “Plus Body by Julia Haart,” which is definitely not your granny’s panties.

Mayan Lopez Tells Her Truth

If tragedy plus time equals comedy, then it’s no surprise the four-year estrangement between my guest Mayan Lopez and her father, comedian George Lopez, yields sitcom gold in “Lopez Vs. Lopez” (new episodes Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and streaming on Peacock). As the show begins its second season, Mayan shares how she mines laughs from heavy subjects like infidelity, alcoholism, and race; how a TikTok video led her to network TV stardom, and how she blazed her own trail in the entertainment business through improv and sketch comedy.

"Where is Wendy Williams?" - Exploring the Complexities of Her Life and Struggles

In 2022, Mark Ford and Erica Hanson, the executive producers of the revealing new docuseries, “Where is Wendy Williams” (now available on Lifetime), set out to chronicle the return of one of daytime’s loudest and most popular voices. What they found was a lonely woman in crisis despite being placed under guardianship by New York State. Ford and Hanson discuss remaining nimble in their approach to documenting Wendy Williams’ struggle with alcoholism and her descent into dementia; being stonewalled by the system allegedly in place to protect her; earning the trust of the Williams family, and filmmaking as a form of health advocacy.

The Secrets of Polygamy

Despite being prohibited by the Mormon Church and deemed illegal, the Fundamentalist Latter Day Saints (FLDS) appear to openly engage in multiple underage marriages, often justifying these unions under the pretext of religious customs. Executive Producer Lori Golden-Stryer joins me for a look inside her new docuseries, “The Secrets of Polygamy” (now airing on A&E – new episodes Mondays at 10/9pm Central) and explains how visibility is the best weapon we have against what amounts to kidnapping, trafficking, and rape. Lori and her team of dedicated investigators shine a light on the isolation that permits the practice of polygamy and helps reunite the children left behind by parents who break free from the FLDS.

Bianca Del Rio Can’t Say No

For all my episodes I prepare copious notes and questions to try and get to know my guests, but from the moment the tape started rolling on my interview with drag queen and comedian Bianca Del Rio, I tossed them aside and let her do all the talking. Full of unbridled energy and raunchy jokes, Bianca told me all about getting ready for her 60-city “Dead Inside” comedy tour (tickets on sale at www.thebiancadelrio.com). Bianca sounds off on the current state of drag, the power of saying “yes,” her unique road rituals, and surviving in a world obsessed with cancel culture.

Casey Anthony: Truth & Lies

Award-winning journalist Tony Harris is back to talk about his new special, “Casey Anthony’s Parents – The Lie Detector Test” (now on A&E). In 2008, Casey Anthony’s daughter, Caylee, went missing and the child’s disappearance gripped the world. When her decomposing body was found near the Anthonys’ home a month later, the pursuit of justice for Caylee began. Casey was found not guilty of all significant charges in 2011, yet many questions remained as to what happened. Tony Harris discusses his latest mission – administering on-camera lie detector tests to Casey’s parents, George and Cindy Anthony, to find out if crimes, both new and old, were committed and covered up.

Heather McMahan Takes the Stage

It takes charisma, persistence, energy, and, of course, a sense of humor to be a comedian, and lucky for Heather McMahan, she has all of it in great abundance. Her first Netflix special, “The Son I Never Had,” is streaming now, and it’s hilarious, filled with raunchy truths pulled from her own life. Her podcast, “Absolutely Not,” is equally frank and side-splitting. Heather joins me live and in-person to talk about growing up in a funny family, finding her soulmate, a chance encounter with my mom, the slog of being a touring comic, and her first time doing standup, which took place somewhere many of us still have nightmares about being.

Don Argott & Sheena Joyce Score with “Kelce”

In their riveting and touching new film, “KELCE” (now streaming on Prime Video), Don Argott, director, and Sheena Joyce, producer, walk the line between documentarians and fans of the Philadelphia Eagles. For two years, their cameras had extraordinary access to Jason Kelce, Philly’s favorite center, and his family as he considers retirement, strives toward a second Super Bowl win, and supports and raises his growing brood. In true Philadelphia form, Argott and Joyce are as scrappy as they are successful and show their audience there’s much more to Jason and his brother Travis Kelce (the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs) than just playing professional football.

Marie joins me to discuss the intricacies of the girls’ rescue from their homeland after Kabul fell to the Taliban in the summer of 2021, the terrifying family sacrifices these young athletes were forced to make, and the hope they kept alive in the face of uncertainty and the looming threat of death.

Nicholas Hatton Serves “Jury Duty”

One of my favorite shows of the year is, “Jury Duty,” produced by today’s guest, Nicholas Hatton. The premise of “Jury Duty” is that a fake trial is performed totally by actors, except for one person, Ronald Gladden, who believes he’s actually a juror and that the case is real. What was anxiety-inducing for Nicholas has yielded enormous returns, as “Jury Duty” is a huge hit and has garnered four Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy Series and Outstanding Supporting Actor for James Marsden, who plays… James Marsden, Juror Number 14. On today’s episode, we pull back the curtain and take a deep dive into how Nicholas and his team of merry pranksters pulled off a televised magic trick that was all at once unique, funny, and completely engaging.

Landon Van Soest and the Jewel Thief

When Landon Van Soest first read about the criminal exploits of Gerald Blanchard, he knew that he had to make a documentary about this prolific career thief who stole everything from Radio Shack speakers to the Star of Sisi, one of the famed jewels Empress Elisabeth of Austria would wear in her hair. Landon eventually got his wish, and his true-crime documentary, “The Jewel Thief,” is now available to stream on Hulu. Gerald’s story is unbelievable for so many reasons: his fearlessness, his ingenuity, and (as his law-enforcement pursuers would describe it) his stupidity.

Kevin Abrams and Ivan Bates Caught a Monster

The documentary “I’ve Got a Monster” is now available in select theaters and for rent/purchase on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, and Vudu. The documentary, directed by Kevin Abrams, focuses on lawyer Ivan Bates’ tireless role as the defense attorney for the many victims of Baltimore City police officer, Wayne Jenkins’ corruption. Abrams and Bates join me to discuss the film, which shows in painful detail how Jenkins and members of the Baltimore City Police Department’s Gun Trace Task Force robbed and imprisoned innocent people for their own financial gain. The documentary meticulously details how in 2017, Jenkins and six other BCPD officers were indicted on racketeering charges, and in doing so, gives voice to those who fell victim to their despicable scheme.

Kevin and Frankie Jonas Stake their Claim

We’re all used to sibling rivalries, but my guests, Kevin and Frankie Jonas, are an example of sibling camaraderie. These two-out-of-four Jonas brothers are the hosts of “Claim to Fame,” the hit reality competition show in which contestants vie for $100,000 by guessing the identities of each other’s celebrity relatives while trying to keep their own a secret. The second season airs new episodes every Monday at 8 pm on ABC. These two busy showbiz pros talk about how working with each other feels less like a job and more like hanging out, what it was like growing up with the behemoth that was (and still is) the Jonas Brothers, and who their mom’s favorite child is.

Tony Harris is Telling the Truth

As “The Proof is Out There” begins its fourth season, on June 9th on the History Channel (new episodes every Friday night), host Tony Harris has a lot of natural skepticism. Not in the fact that his show is a hit, but whether the creatures, phenomena, and UFOs viewers submit on video for expert review are real or phony. To say Tony has a curious mind would be an understatement – in fact, he calls his curiosity his superpower.

Exposing the Duggar Family Secrets

In the eye-opening Prime Video documentary series, "Shiny Happy People: Duggar Family Secrets," Melissa Rivers engages in a thought-provoking conversation with Director Olivia Crist and Executive Producer Blye Faust. Unveiling the dark underbelly of the Institute for Basic Life Principles (ILBP), the series goes beyond the seemingly fruitful Duggar family (of TLC's "19 Kids and Counting") to expose a web of nefarious schemes. Through firsthand accounts from family members who have escaped the organization, viewers gain a rare glimpse into the cult's disturbing practices, including the suppression of women, enduring years of sexual abuse, and the alarming grooming of future generations of young men with a mission to blur the line between church and state.

His latest character is Gordon Novel, an intense investigator, in “Waco: The Aftermath” now streaming on Showtime (new episodes every Friday). Surprisingly, Gary credits his love of standup comedy at an early age as his inspiration to pursue acting, and fondly recalls being in a delivery room while the horrific events of the Waco standoff were unfolding. From playing the Vice President of the United States, to Mike Brady, to a foulmouthed consultant on “Veep,” Gary breaks down how he prepares for these wide-ranging roles and heralds the importance of always “staying in the moment.” The only way “Group Text” happens is with YOUR support and support from mm amazing sponsors!

Ally Sheedy has created some of the angstiest, most heartbreaking, and endearing characters in iconic coming-of-age movies such as “The Breakfast Club” and “St. Elmo’s Fire.” We go through her 40-plus-year acting career just in time for her second season in “Single Drunk Female” (new episodes available now on HULU). Ally explains why she resists rewatching her old movies, enjoys teaching as a creative counterpart to performance, and finds the label “Brat Pack,” a belittling misnomer of her and her Reagan-era acting comrades.

Knoxville, Tennessee may be the gateway to the Smoky Mountains, but for comedian Leanne Morgan, it was the starting point for a career in standup comedy.

Leanne talks about being YouTube famous in her 50s, saying out loud what we’re all thinking inside, and being too darn tired to be inauthentic.
