Today’s guests are Deb Lacusta and Dan Castellaneta. I’ve known Deb and Dan since the early ‘80s, when I was cast in a play Deb and Dan wrote for Chicago's Bailiwick Theatre. Improvisationally Deb’s performed with the great Spolin Players, and The Second City Alumni Jam. She’s written for “The Simpsons,” “The Tracy Ullman Show,” and co-wrote and performed in “Deb & Dan’s Show,” with her collaborator, acting partner and husband Dan Castellaneta, of “The Simpsons” fame. I remember watching Dan perform at Second City etc., and felt so lucky when we could all play together out here in LA. We spoke about process, ambition, taking risks, and some great people we’ve worked with. We recorded our interview at The Fanatic Salon in LA’s westside. This is a good one.
