Hilarious and Heartwarming

In a chaotic, uncertain, and even contentious time in this country, and the world at large, this is the kind of show you need to watch….. The stories showcased in each episode are told brilliantly…. The storytellers are upbeat, excited, and the pace is perfect… Ed and Randall are captivated and genuinely interested in every single second of each tale. You will root for each and every character, and the re-enactments are played to perfection by some of comedy’s best entertainers (Adam Pally takes the cake as a die hard Steelers fan in the first story of the series)… watch it with your kids…. You will not be disappointed…
