Mike and I are back with a whole new season of TVOP, and we’re incredibly proud to be kicking it all off with our interview with the amazing promo producer and coach, Jodi Gottlieb.

She shares a ton of inside information about how to approach the modern promo audition and gig, plus she dishes on the grand old man of promo, Ernie Anderson. Definitely worth tuning in for…

Mike and I kick it the whole off with tips for auditioning from home, plus a whole lot more. Join us, won’t you?

Oh, and here’s the Ernie Anderson TV piece from the 80s we mention. Check out that young Paul Thomas Anderson!

You know Jeffrey Tambor for his award-winning work on Transparent, in addition to Arrested Development and the Larry Sanders Show (Hey, now!), but he’s also done his share of voiceover, as King Neptune in the Spongebob Squarepants movie, as a character in Monsters vs. Aliens, and even as the announcer on Hollywood Squares. He’s also a renowned teacher and does a one-man show for artists called “Performing Your Life.”




Joe Cipriano is one of the biggest names in promo. You know him from his work on Fox, his work on CBS comedies, for dramas on CBS, and currently as the voice of NBC’s hit show, “Deal or No Deal.” But this year, Joe is also the recipient of the PromaxBDA Don LaFontaine Legacy Award. We chat with Joe as part of Promax Week here on TVOP!
