Episode 55 – Andrew Bergman on Blazing Saddles

AndrewBergmanMy favorite film of all time is Blazing saddles.  In fact, there used to be a subway/bus poster for the film hanging where I now hang my LPs.  There’s plenty around Fort Awesome Studios to indicate my love for this film and anyone who had anything to do with it.  So, only a few months after getting to play Hedley Lamarr onstage, I was honored to speak with Andrew Bergman by phone from New York about my favorite film, which started from a kernel of an idea, turned into a novella that I desperately want to read, and became a classic, sparking off the career of my  favorite director.  I had a wonderful time, and Andrew was a super-classy, nice, insightful writer – everything you’d hope.  Enjoy.
