Comedy Writer: Adam Lorenzo, Guests on The Letterman Podcast with Mike Chisholm (audio-visual).
Adam Lorenzo didn't plan on becoming a comedy writer for three different Worldwide Pants properties while he was in college. He owned a bar. No, really. And he learned a lot of life lessons owning that bar. So many that he wrote a book about it, that is equally as humorous as it is true. After he owned the bar, he became a comedy writer, first by faxing jokes to The Late Show with David Letterman.
He had such a talent for it, he ended up becoming a staff writer on The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and then went on to be a writer on Everybody Loves Raymond, and ironically, Everybody Hates Chris. (not a Pants show, but the coincidental titles must be recognized) Adam and Mike have a fantastic conversation spanning Adam's career. Adam's new book, "All I Need to Know I Learned From My College Bar," is delightful, highly recommended, and can be purchased everywhere and at Collegebarbook.com
