About the Show

Based on a true-life experience, a man discovers his inner self in more ways than one. A near tragedy is masterfully transformed into a one-man comedy, perfectly portrayed by Ed Asner in his hilarious visit to the hospital in preparation for surgery he doesn’t want.

 

About Ed Asner

Ed Asner has been an enduring presence in television, film and stage for 60 years.  Developing his craft in Chicago and New York, Ed established himself as a solid and versatile performer, regularly featured in roles on the big screen and in such landmark television series as “The Outer Limits”, “Gunsmoke”, “The Wild Wild West”, “Ironside”, and “Mission Impossible”, totaling more than 100 television credits.

In the ’70s, his role as Lou Grant in the long-running hit sitcom “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” catapulted him to stardom.  He then cemented himself as an “actor’s actor”, perpetuating his character in the dramatic series “Lou Grant”.  Ed is the only actor to have won an Emmy for the same role in both a comedy and a drama (five total as Lou Grant).  He went on to win two more Emmy Awards for complex roles in the mega-hit miniseries “Roots” and “Rich Man, Poor Man”.

Throughout his career, Ed has always been in great demand.  In addition to his celebrated work in television, he turned in unforgettable performances in films such as “JFK”, “Elf”, and “Pacific Edge”.

He returned to Broadway in “Grace”, and toured the country with his one-man show “FDR”, portraying President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

If that weren’t enough, Ed served two terms as President of the Screen Actors Guild, protecting the rights of professional working actors.
