New "Kahnversations" Podcast with Actor 
Andy Favreau!

 

 

In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Andy Favreau.

A Massachusetts native, Andy attended Suffolk University in Boston for four years of undergrad and two years of graduate school earning a Masters in Criminology and Law and Public Administration.  It wasn’t until after graduation that Andy realized, yes, he wanted to be a cop, but he kinda sorta just wanted to play one on T.V.

In 2011, with his degrees firmly packed away in a 18x14 cardboard box, he drove 3,000 miles across the country to Los Angeles. After a few years of trying to find his footing, Andy started to work consistently. Most notably, he was a series regular on Mindy Kaling’s NBC comedy series CHAMPIONS. He has also had recurring roles on SINGLE PARENTS, ANIMAL KINGDOM, THE MICK, and AQUARIUS. And soon you will see him in the HULU limited series LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE. Other credits include, WILL & GRACE, CODE BLACK, YOUNG & HUNGRY, AMERICAN WOMAN, THE ARRANGEMENT, 2 BROKE GIRLS, ROSEWOOD, NCIS and BONES.

There are so many inspiring podcasts with fabulous stars out there. But their careers feel light years away from ours, don’t they? Wouldn’t it be great to hear from the guy who just booked his first pilot? Or the kid finally doing a studio pic after a bunch of low budget indies? Or the woman who’s been a series regular a few times but is only now becoming a name? What about the guy who’s been on a show for years and you know his face but what’shisnameagain? Or that actress who is now a freakin’ showrunner???? How’d THEY do it, right? How did they transition from relative obscurity, bartending and bottle service, to buying that house in Brentwood? We’re producing “Kahnversations,” a podcast that provides access to THOSE people -- your immediate predecessors -- so that you can learn from them while their battle scars are still fresh.


In “Kahnversations,” our own Ryan Bailey interviews some of Lesly Kahn & Company’s working actors, directors, and writers in order to learn how they got started in Hollywood, the challenges and hurdles they faced, and how they overcame the odds. (They also dish out some crazy stories!) Listen in and enjoy as these entertainers speak candidly about their paths, processes, and experiences. You might even hear a bit about how Lesly and the Kahnstitute have influenced and shaped their careers.
