John O’Hurley on Why We Need the Great American Songbook
On The Scene today we are honored to be joined by John O’Hurley, who presents his one man show A Man With Standards this weekend October 15th and 16th at Feinstein’s/54 Below. O’Hurley is perhaps best known for his recurring role as J. Peterman on Seinfeld and as the host of Family Feud from 2006-2010. In other select credits he has starred in Chicago on Broadway and the touring production of Spamalot, hosted numerous game shows and television events, voiced characters across a plethora of animated series, written several books, released several albums, was the runner-up on the first season of Dancing with the Stars and is nicknamed the Seventh Most Interesting Man in the World. A Man With Standards includes performances of classics from the Great American Songbook along with musings on his life and career, and in our podcast he reflects on what these songs have meant to him over the course of his life.
