The cast and creators of How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life) were in Beverly Hills talking about their hilarious new show. Here’s the scoop!
Well, as far as panels for press events go, it would be hard to find one funnier than the folks who represented How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life).
Brad Garrett was on fire with his answers to any questions thrown his way. He joked his mom was tri-polar so he moved out right after conception. In reality, he moved out when he was 16. So did Elizabeth Perkins. Sarah Chalke also moved out when she was 16 to do Roseanne. Jon Dore couldn’t be there, but that didn’t stop Sarah Chalke from mentioning how funny he is.
Executive Producer Claudia Lonow says the show is autobiographical as she’s been living with her parents for 15 years and has been working for the story for 12. Her folks are over-the-top people in show business. They actually manage Lewis Black.
Claudia says her parents first reactions were “we thought we were done” but they still took her in. She slept in the weight room with her daughter when they first moved back home. This led to some bizarre discussions about how many bedrooms people have, what kind of beds they sleep in and more. Once again, Brad Garrett was cracking up the room with his confusion about this Feng shui line of questioning.
By the way, did you know that Executive Producer Claudia Lonow is a former actress? Her most famous role would probably be that of Diana Fairgate on Knots Landing.
