Carolyn Fox was lucky enough to have not one, but two world-class actors and comedians in the studio today: Jim Meskimen who has appeared in many films and TV shows, including 5 Ron Howard films, the improv comedy show “Who’s Line is it Anyway,” and was the voice of George W. Bush and other politicians on viral JibJab animated shorts; and Phil Proctor of the surrealistic classic rock-comedy troupe The Firesign Theater (“Don’t Crush That Dwarf, Hand Me the Pliers,” “How Can You Be in Two Places at Once,” etc.) and who was voice was Howard in the animated TV series “Rugrats,” and has appeared in such Pixar films as “Monsters Inc.” and “Finding Nemo,” among many other creative projects.
These two comic masters met and recognized each other as kindred spirits, when Jim directed Phil as one of the actors on the production of “The Golden Age of Pulp Fiction” as audio books. To be in the same room with these comedic forces of nature is to be overcome with laughter and awed by their rapid-fire wit.
On Saturday, May 19 at 7 PM, Jim Meskimen will appear live in “Jimpressions,” the second half of which will showcase his amazing improvisational skills, at the La Paloma Theater in Encinitas, located at 471 S. Coast Hwy. 101. For more information, call (760) 436-7469.
And tune into 1580 AM Saturday, May 11 at 1 AM to hear Jim’s and Phil’s in-studio interview on “Carolyn Fox’s Hollywood Spotlight.”
