May 15, 2015 – Thomas Lennon (the guy who invented and acted Lt. Jim Dangle of Reno 911!) posts on Twitter.
Years before Lt. Frank, I first met Tom after he performed a set at the Hollywood Improv. We both wore pants. The idea I’d ever wear short shorts inspired by Lt. Dangle would have struck me as sheer lunacy. At the time. Naturally, Tom and I talked about podcasts. And therefore Marc Maron.
Fast forward a few years to the debut of Lt. Frank on Hollywood Blvd. A month later Anthony Jeselnick asks Tom how he feels about it. As Marc Maron (Anthony’s other guest on the Jeselnick Offensive on Comedy Central) dutifully waits for the conversation to … turn. (Love you, Marc!)
