Tasty News: “Stranger Things”‘ PAUL REISER Returns to Stand-Up Stages This Fall

It seems like everywhere you turn PAUL REISER, beloved television actor, comedian, TV writer, producer, author and musician, is making his mark. No doubt you’ve seen him on programs like Netflix’s bread and butter series, Stranger Things, as “The Legend” in season three of Amazon’s The Boys, as Martin in Chuck Lorre’s comedy-drama The Kominsky Method, reprising his role as Paul Buchman in the revival of the multi award-winning 90s sitcom Mad About You, and There’s…Johnny!, The Tonight Show-inspired series co-created and co-produced by Reiser. Of course, this consummate professional is certainly not resting on all those laurels. September 20th, you can see Reiser in Reboot, a comedy series from Modern Family’s Steve Levitan, following an early 2000s family sitcom that Hulu has rebooted. How meta! Reiser wrapped filming on the indie film The Problem with People (co-written with Wally Marzano-Lesnevich and all produced by Reiser) in which two estranged cousins making amends for generations of family disputes and drama. Reiser stars in the film alongside Colm Meaney, Jane Levy, Lucianne McEvoy and Des Keough. Oh, you thought Reiser’s film and TV work is all I wanted to talk about? How silly of you! Reiser’s schedule is about to put all millennial entertainers’ calendars to shame!
