Saturday Night Live Alum, Jim Breuer, called the show for a special Father’s Day episode. In our more than four years on the air, Jim’s interview soared up to one of my all time favorites.
Jim Breuer remains one of today’s top entertainers and continues to win over audiences with his off-the-wall humor and lovable personality. Named one of Comedy Central’s “100 Greatest Stand-Ups of All Time,” Breuer is one of the most recognizable comedians in the business, known for his charismatic stage antics, dead-on impressions, and family-friendly stand-up.
“I love this topic!” – Jim Breuer
From Home Improvement to Saturday Night Live, Jim Breuer brings a comedy legacy to audiences across the country. Calling the show, Jim also shared his huge heart and great love of family as shared his own journey as a caregiver. On air, Jim recalled introducing his father to Sylvester Stallone. Launching into an amazing impression of the Rocky star, Jim had us howling with laughter. Jim’s rapid fire delivery showed no mercy to John and me as we tried to catch our breath. But then just as quick, Jim opened his heart to share deeply personal and poignant events regarding his father.
On The Road With Dad
In 2008, Breuer set out for his “Breuniversity Tour” with his 85-year-old father and a film crew. “The Jim Breuer Road Journals,” showcased what life is like on the road with a comedian and his father. Videos from that tour also sparked the making of his documentary “More Than Me,” which was shown at the 2009 Montreal Film Festival.
A Family Man—A Marriage Warrior
Breuer’s one-hour Comedy Central special “Let’s Clear the Air” premiered in 2009. This special contained hilarious topics that included what “success” really is, his SNL days and life with his elderly parents, his wife and his three daughters. Jim’s latest special focuses on what Breuer’s life (and all of our lives) truly consist of: dealing with the elderly, becoming our parents’ caretakers, parenting teenagers, and what it takes to be a “marriage warrior.”
Jim is a baseball fan, but he is a METS super-fan. The sheer joy he takes in ‘his’ team is completely infectious. Even to non-fans. Even to Yankee’s fans. But as fun, charming and watchable as Jim is, in this one way, he is not unique. These kind of fans are everywhere: they are you, your uncle, that guy from accounting who spent all his vacation time following the Cubs in the playoffs…
Bats, Balls and Breu is Jim’s way to start a baseball revolution. He’s giving baseball fans a voice and a platform, because baseball belongs to all of us.
