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 visits the Irvine, California apartment of Cal Iseminger, founder of Cal's Game Night, a company that facilitates kick-ass game nights in people's homes. He talks about growing up in a game-loving family, how his hobby of hosting game nights turned into a business, his first paying party with a guest list full of celebrities, the types of games his company offers, the two celebrities that are the most competitive, doing corporate events for places like Warner Bros. and Disney and the most fulfilling part of his job. Cal also discusses what it's like to show up at the houses of the super rich, having to tell CEO big shots that they're wrong, how he handles prizes and the celebrity whose sweet tweet gave Cal's Game Night a big boost.   Other topics include: leading a fitness class dressed as Goofy on a Disney Cruise, working as a background actor on Desperate Housewives when he first got to LA, his obsession with film composer John Williams, opening and closing a games restaurant, his worst audition ever, doing game nights on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and that time Lisa Kudrow couldn't figure out that the answer she couldn't come up with was Friends.
