Marlo Thomas: 12 New Comedians to Watch -- and the Stars Who Gave Them Their Break!
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
"You're going to be a star." Those were the words Johnny Carson spoke to Joan Rivers on national television on the night of February 17, 1965. Only moments before, Joan had been an unknown and struggling comic -- an anxious but enormously talented fighter who had to tear down mountains to convince the Tonight show bookers to squeeze her into the last ten minutes of the show. But thanks to a killer set -- and Carson's coast-to-coast anointment of her as a force to be reckoned with -- her life changed. "The next morning, the phones went off the hook," Joan once told me. "It was really like an overnight sensation. Amazing." Every performer needs a mentor to give them support, to show them the ropes, to tell them that everything is going to be okay. Show business can be a painfully isolating profession, and a little nod of approval can go a long way. When I began filming my series, That Girl, I was renting a sound stage at Desilu Studios, which was owned by Lucille Ball. ...

Ellen Sterling: Mike Tyson: He's Lived and He's Learned -- Now He's Telling the Story
The Guestlist - almost 5 years
"I love entertaining people. I love the live stuff. The stage was what I was made for." The speaker is Mike Tyson. He's sitting in the corner of an L-shaped couch in a 12th floor suite in the MGM Grand, hosting a parade of journalists who have come to interview him because, this week, he will be taking the stage at the hotel's Hollywood Theatre to perform Undisputed Truth, a multi-media retrospective of his life so far. I interviewed Tyson because I write often about Las Vegas shows and his is news. Although I'd read of his exploits over the years, I honestly came into the interview with no opinion one way or another about him. A half-hour or so later, after the interview, I can say I am eager to see the show and impressed with the guy's depth, knowledge and perspective. At 45, "Iron Mike" Tyson can look back on a life that so far has been -- well, choose your adjective: tumultuous, public, controversial, turbulent or, even, all of the above. But, now, the best adje ...

Nancy Berk, Ph.D.: 5 Comedy Career Lessons for College Graduates
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Last month, at Bryant University's Women's Summit, I spoke about strategies for launching successful new careers. Although my audience was focused on reinvention, I knew the lessons could be applied at any career stage. Still, the relevance of the topic for college graduates hadn't crossed my mind until I met a comedy icon who attributed his many successes to some of the same cognitive and behavioral strategies. Given commencement is right down the road, it seemed only fitting to share these comedy life lessons with parents and their graduates.... I recently had the pleasure of interviewing legendary funny man David Brenner for my podcast Whine At 9. One of the most televised faces in comedy, Brenner has headlined the biggest stages in the country, had four HBO specials and his own talk show. Before that, he was a successful writer, producer, and director of television documentaries. He also holds the record (158!) for Tonight Show appearances, which, in my book, means he m ...
