1 Oscar with an additional 4 nominations
4 Emmys, with an additional 2 nominations...
and 9 GODDAMNED TONY AWARDS WITH AN ADDITIONAL 9 GODDAMNED NOMINATIONS.
Oh, and he was a founder of Second City.

Also, we are on twitter @thefilmthugs and on Facebook and Vine.
You can also click on one of our sponsor links below and THEY will pay us. That's right. You won't have to pay a PENNY extra, and Amazon/Onnit/Teefury will give us a little taste.
Thanks for listening, and until next week...
