Kevin Rooney Part 2: Comedy Heliotrope

In Part 2 of the interview with Kevin Rooney, we begin with Paul digging up a clip of Kevin in the movie "When Harry Met Sally." Rooney talks about his move from NYC to California, his first TV spot on Evening at The Improv, getting on the Tonight Show, and his long relationship with Jay Leno.  Paul also asks Kevin about his move from standup to TV writer/producer working on Emmy Award Winning shows like the Dennis Miller Show, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, and as a producer on My Wife And Kids & 'Til Death.  Kevin's showbusiness Homily's are quoted quite a bit by Judd Apatow and Dana Gould, so Paul's asks him what it feels like to be a showbusiness veteran and what projects he would like to work on in the future. The two also finally get into some sports by discussing  the Super Bowl and talking about how easily those NY Giants/NE Patriots Super Bowls were to going the either way.
