DENNIS ANYONE? with Dennis Hensley

Welcome to Dennis Anyone, a podcast about making things up and making things happen. I love to talk to creative types about what they do and how they do it. Hope you enjoy my conversations as much as I do. - Dennis H.

Dennis pays a pre-Thanksgiving visit--pumpkin pie and all--to the Silver Lake home of actor-writer Rob Elk who co-wrote and starts in the outrageously funny long-running play "Bob's Holiday Office Party." Also on hand are his co-writer and co-star Joe Keyes and actor Mark Fite who has been playing the UFO-obsessed would be thespian Marty in the show since the get-go 22 years ago! They talk about the small midwestern hometowns that inspired the play, how the play began as a long improv, making the yearly decision to do it again, updating the script to address life in Trump's America and that time Meg Ryan came to the show. They also discuss the summer sequel they've been working on, the "Bob's" movie they're jonesing to make, their favorite moments of the show, on stage accidents and the g-string moment that took them all by surprise. Other topics include: horrible haircuts, drunken demolition derbies, the movie "Local Hero" eating bugs and  more.
