Cloverleaf Radio Presents: Actor/Writer Peter Elbling "Honey I Blew Up The Kid"!

29 minutes

Cloverleaf Radio's host The Host with the Most Jimmy Falcon welcomes Actor/Director/Writer/Producer, Peter Elbling!

Mine was a happy childhood with a typical English upbringing: an estate in the country and a house in town, private school, my own manservant, etc., etc. However I was born with a restless spirit and at age 19 I gave it all up for the life of the traveling folksinger in Canada, which surprisingly had none at the time.

A year later, this same nervous energy caused me to drop folk singing and join Michel Choquette in a comedy duo we called The Times Square Two. For the next five years we appeared in coffee houses, night clubs, and concert halls, as well as such TV shows as The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour, The Dean Martin Show, The Gold Diggers, The Johnny Carson Show, and The Kraft Music Hall -- and many more. After the demise of The Times Square Two I studied acting with the improvisational comedy troupes "The Committee" and "The Second City." For the next 20 years I appeared on stage in Shakespeare and on screen in Taxi, WKRP in Cincinnati, Laverne and Shirley, Rhoda, Phyllis, Shaft, and numerous cops and robbers shows. I also appeared in films, perhaps none more interesting than Phantom of the Paradise, in which I also sang and danced -- and choreographed.
Soon after, Garry Goodrow and I wrote a film called "Big Baby," which was bought by Disney and turned into Honey, I Blew up the Kid. I was now devoting so much time to writing that I gave up acting altogether. But, since I didn't know what I was doing I joined Jim Krusoe's writing workshop at Santa Monica City College
