Actor Jeff Garlin stopped by for a visit today to promote his weekend gig at The Comedy Store in La Jolla. The always delightful and interesting comedian, actor recently lost a lot of weight and tells the story of how he did in a book he wrote called, "My Footprint: Carrying The Weight of the World." He claims to be a "sugar addict" so banning all sugar from his diet has been the key.
Garlin is getting set to star in a new season of the sit-com, "The Goldbergs" on ABC. He's also starred in "Curb Your Enthusiasm,"with Larry David and "Arrested Development." He admitted spending three years doing the movie, "Wall - E" has been his all-time favorite acting job. Garlin will soon be seen in the next "Toy Story" movie as Buttercup the Unicorn.
Be sure to catch his stand-up at The Comedy Store in La Jolla tonight, Saturday and Sunday.

Here's some of the things we learned today.
It was awesome starting the day with "Cassandra, Tremane and their kooked-up baby." It still makes me laugh out loud.
In Chainsaw Sports: Our Padres had won three in a row and are only 22 games out of first place! The Chargers went 2-2 in their preseason games. SDSU Aztec's play Stanford tonight in Santa Clara.
When Peyton Manning was on "SNL" he was supposed to throw nerf footballs at the heads of little kids. He told producers it made him feel really uncomfortable and he didn't want to do it. But one of the Mom's of the kid actor's came up to him and said, "I want you to hit my kid in the face." So he did!
The first round of Stump The Joke Czar was unsuccessful since we didn't give away any Sky Show tickets. The quality of the jokes were lame, not funny or had the wrong setups. Fortunately, round two went much better, with listener Tom bailing us out with a funny one.
We had a 4th grade geography $5 Quiz: Name the World Capitals. At the last question, Emily and Chainsaw were tied with seven each. Since Chainsaw knew the capital of Kenya is Narobi and Emily didn't - he won! Emily was in the Geography Club in fourth grade, so we're hanging our heads in shame for her. Did you know some of these or not?
