The Brian and Danielle Show


Episode 5: The Lost Martin Short Sessions

February 17, 2013


Ready for a trip into "The Brian and Danielle Show" vault? Join us for a fun walk down memory lane as Brian shares the nearly-three-decades-old tape of his first celebrity interview with none other than comedic genius Martin Short. Seems a recent issue of Vanity Fair reminded Brian about the long-lost interview. Now you can decide for yourself if Marty was "ambushed" (or "Pre-TMZ'd") by 18-year-old fanboy Brian. We think you'll enjoy hearing Martin Short just before his movie career took flight. (And who can resist listening to fledgling interviewer Brian?)  We couldn't agree more with the recent Vanity Fair article, which states that "Martin Short gives good talk show" -- even when he's being kind to a brand-new student radio reporter on his ill-fated first assignment.
