November 19th Show at 92Y
Our second 92Y live show got crowded into a busy pre-Thanksgiving week and while it's normally an extension of our conversations both on air and in the makeup room each morning at work, this was the first time we had seen each other in days; Pat had been called for jury duty.
Our first guest was chef Seamus Mullen, who has a personal connection to Jamie. He helped change her life (for the better) by leading her to the foods that relieve her arthritis. He got rid of the arthritis in his body by doing the same.
We talked a lot with Seamus about biking in New York. He rides about 250 miles a week and has some great ideas about how people who are walking, biking and driving can all get along. His restaurants are Tertulia and El Colmado. Jamie highly recommends both.
We then heard a great New York City story from comedian Caitlin Brodnick. The ending surprised, and delighted, us.
And we finished with Nick Sandow, writer and director of The Wannabe, which opens in theaters December 4th. Watch the trailer here. He also told us that the next season of Orange Is The New Black -- in which he plays Joe Caputo, head of Litchfield Penitentiary -- lives up to its categorization in the Drama category for awards shows. They just started shooting the day of our live show at 92Y.
We ended the show with a bang -- or a song, really. Our Musical Director Leslie Goshko led the audience in singing Happy Birthday to Pat. (His birthday was the following day, November 20th. Age not disclosed here.)
Our next show is Thursday, January 28th at 8:15pm. Hope you'll join us. In the meantime, catch up on all the Pat and Jamie podcasts.
