Long time Grammy Award-Winning music industry executive and personal manager, featured in VH-1s Behind the Music, Driven and the Biography Channel's on Guns 'N' Roses, Brett Michaels, and Mötley Crüe and the BBC series Born To Be Wild, The Golden Age Of American Rock.Considered one of the most successful music executives in the industry, Vicky has discovered, developed or managed the careers of Guns 'N' Roses, Mötley Crüe, Poison, Faster Pussycat and many others.In 1988, David Geffen hired her as A&R executive at Geffen Records, where she stayed until 1992. She has also worked with famed manager Elliot Roberts at Lookout Management/ Vapor Records, before moving to Capitol Records as A&R consultant with longtime friend Gary Gersh.At the House of Blues after watching Johnny Cash perform, Rick Rubin (Def Jam, American, Columbia Records) suggested she make a record with June Carter Cash. Hamilton shopped June's demos around to all the major labels but there was a reluctance to sign this country legend. This is when Vicky started her own label Small Hairy Dog and gave June a label to call home. Her CD, Press On was released in 1999 and earned a Grammy Award in 2000. As Hamilton later stated, "I didn't plan on starting a record company, I just knew that June's music needed to be heard."Currently, Vicky owns and operates Aesthetic V management and productions, which represents and develops bands, artist and special projects. Her new documentary, Until The Music Ends is currently in production. Her two feature length scripts, Metal Maven and Gothic City are also complete and currently being shopped.

A legend and a mentor to me it's beyond an honor to have the great Rick Overton on Inappropriate Earl. Sadly half way through this podcast he got a text with word of the passing of Gary Shandling so it's a bit awkward in that few minutes but Rick was AWESOME.

This is one of if not my FAVORITE episode of all time as I have one of the greatest screen villains of all time NON from Superman 2. What a lot of people also don't know is Jack in the late 60's and early 70's was a world class boxer so we had ALOT to talk about!! Follow him on Twitter @MAnastasia and at www.familylegacythenovel.com as well as me on Twitter/Instagram @EarlSkakelBoxingO'Halloran was born in Philadelphia and lived in Runnemede, New Jersey. Fighting as "Irish" Jack O'Halloran from Boston, he was a heavyweight boxing contender active from 1966 to 1974. The 6-foot, 6-inch O'Halloran was undefeated throughout his first 16 professional fights.During his boxing career, O'Halloran defeated former title contenders Cleveland Williams and Manuel Ramos. He also defeated Danny McAlinden, who won a bronze medal in boxing at the 1966 British Empire and Commonwealth Games in Kingston, Jamaica and later became the British and Commonwealth Heavyweight Champion. O'Halloran's losses included defeats to Joe Bugner, Ron Lyle, and future heavyweight champions George Foreman and Ken Norton.In 1973, O'Halloran was close to attaining a match against Muhammad Ali when he was knocked out by Jimmy Summerville. This ended his chances to fight Ali. Although O'Halloran went on to defeat Summerville by K.O. in a rematch, with only three more wins and five losses he was never again a serious heavyweight contender.The California Boxing Hall of Fame has listed O'Halloran as one of its inductees of the 2009 HOF class. Acting careerRetiring from boxing in 1974 with a record of 34-21-2 (17 knockout victories), O'Halloran turned to a career as an actor. He first won the role of ex-convict Moose Malloy in the 1975 film Farewell, My Lovely, featuring Robert Mitchum as private eye Philip Marlowe.After Farewell, My Lovely O'Halloran was offered other roles, some of which he turned down, including the role of Jaws in The Spy Who Loved Me which went to Richard Kiel. Superman film seriesThis led to other tough "henchmen" style roles which culminated in the role he is best known for, Non, the menacing-but-mute member of the trio of Kryptonian supervillains banished to the Phantom Zone by Jor-El (Marlon Brando) in Superman (1978) and inadvertently released by Superman in Superman II (1980).In an interview with Starlog Magazine in 2006, O'Halloran stated that he and Christopher Reeve did not get along during the making of Superman II. On one occasion, he had Reeve against a wall, but Richard Donner intervened and dissuaded him from hitting Reeve. (He also later discussed this incident on the How Did This Get Made? podcast's Episode 24.1.) Despite the clash between them, O'Halloran stated that his heart went out to Reeve after his 1995 accident, and commended him for helping others with spinal cord injuries.According to O'Halloran, the reaction he gets most often from fans is "My God, he can talk!". He is also an active participant on his own messageboard on the Internet Movie Database. Other acting rolesO'Halloran has also played supporting roles in King Kong (1976), March or Die (1977), The Baltimore Bullet (1980), Dragnet (1987), Hero and the Terror (1988), Mob Boss (1990), and The Flintstones (1994).WritingIn 2010, O'Halloran released Family Legacy. The book also outlines O'Halloran's relationship with his claimed father, a former boss of the Gambino crime family, Albert Anastasia.
Thai Rivera will make you uncomfortable in the best way possible. His politically incorrect style of humor has taken the comedy world by storm.Having moved from Arizona to LA Thai quickly became a fixture and force on the comedy scene. After becoming a favorite and regular at clubs such as the Hollywood Improv and World Famous Laugh Factory he started to travel across the country in the most unlikely of places, redneck bars.He has performed with some of the biggest name’s in the world of stand up, some of you may recognize him from the Jo Koy Comedy Tour, he has also been featured on Comedy Central’s Live At Gotham and The Logo Network’s One Night Stand up.While Thai is very proud of who and what he is his disarming style and easy going delivery will put you at ease and there is no doubt that by the end of his set you will understand that Thai is comic who happens to be gay and not a gay comic, or as he would put it “a comic who happens to be a fag and not a fag comic.”Thai’s comedy has not only taken him across this country but as far away as Austraiia and Thule Greenland where he performed for our troops.Go to www.thairivera.com for all his social media sites and tour dates and follow me on Twitter/Instagram @EarlSkakel

This guy maybe have been the most informative guest ever on Inappropriate Earl so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did doing it. Follow him on Twitter @StoutRyan and Instagram @stoutsider as well as me on Twitter/Instagram @EarlSkakel ENJOY!!!Ryan Stout is a well-crafted and seasoned comedian who has performed all over the world. A regular guest on Chelsea Lately, Ryan has also appeared on CONAN, HBO’s Funny as Hell, Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, and his own half-hour special: Comedy Central Presents… Ryan Stout. His debut comedy album, Touché, was released by Comedy Central Records and reached #7 on the iTunes comedy charts. While still in college, Stout was already performing over 300 shows per year when, at age 22, he won the Boston International Comedy Festival’s stand-up comedy competition. He went on to perform at HBO’s The Comedy Festival in Las Vegas, HBO’s U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, the prestigious Just For Laughs International Comedy Festival in Montreal, and the very hip SXSW festival in Austin, Texas. Within six months of moving to Los Angeles, he booked his first pilot, hosting a game show for MTV. That one job established him as a go-to host for any occasion and over the next few years MTV booked Ryan to host nearly 50 projects, including pilots, specials, and episodes of random television. He even hosted the iconic MTV Spring Break. In 2013, Ryan signed on with AXS TV to host the network’s one-hour flagship show, AXS Live. Ryan turned out to be the 21st and final host of AXS Live, presenting more episodes than any of his forebears and doubling– yeah, DOUBLING– the show’s ratings. When the program was eventually cancelled, the experience was like déjà vu. Just like his MTV days, AXS TV took full advantage of Ryan’s hosting capabilities, placing him at the helm of an assortment of programing: AXS TV’s New Year’s Bash, the 2014 Grammy Prediction Special, “best of” episodes of Gotham Comedy Live, and LIVE coverage of all the biggest parties in New York City leading up to Super Bowl XLVIII on AXS TV’s Super Party. Currently, he can be seen on Fameless, a new prank show from David Spade and TruTV. And he stars in AXS TV’s talking head comedy series, MOCKpocalypse, which began airing its third season on August 27, 2015.

Join me as I have a man who's experienced more in his life than all of us put together!! Drew Rose was the singer of the 80's metal band Wildside who were the last band off the Strip to get a big deal before The Grunge Pac Man came along! Wildside was an American Rock/Metal band created in 1988 by founders Brent Woods, Drew Hannah, Benny Rhynedance. Originally called "Young Gunns", the 5 piece lineup included Drew Hannah (vocals), Brent Woods (lead guitar), Benny Rhynedance (rhythm guitar), Marc Simon (bass guitar), Jimmy D. (drums).The group played the clubs of Hollywood from 1988 thru 1990 when they were signed to Capitol Records under the charge of Hale Milgram. Slated to be "the next big thing" by the label, they immediately began recording their album. The band chose Van Halen Producer, Andy Johns to create their record. Recorded at Eddie Van Halen's home studio, Wildside was historically the first outsiders to use the famed "5150" recording studio. After a 1992 release of "Under The Influence", and 2 years of solid touring, music was making a big change and Wildside was caught in the middle of it. Capitol Records was making changes to their lineup and both the label and the band agreed it was time to part. In 1994 a second album would be released under an independent label without Guitarist, Woods. Woods went on to join the Vince Neil project.

I'm really not sure what to say about this man other than he is a true icon and wrestling legend!!Roderick "Roddy" George Toombs (born April 17, 1954), better known by his ring name "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, is a retired Canadian professional wrestler, film actor, and podcast host. Per a WWE "Legend's Contract", he makes occasional TV and promotional appearances for the company. In professional wrestling, he is best known for his work with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE). Although he is Canadian, due to his Scottish heritage he was billed as coming from Glasgow in Scotland and was known for his signature kilt and bagpipe entrance music. He earned the nickname "Rowdy" by displaying his trademark "Scottish" rage, spontaneity and quick wit. Despite being a crowd favorite for his rockstar-like persona, he often played the villain. He was also nicknamed "Hot Rod".Piper headlined several major pay-per-view events; he participated in the main events of WrestleMania I and WrestleMania X – as a special guest referee in the latter. Never a world champion, he nevertheless accumulated 34 championships in various promotions during his career. Piper was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 and named No. 1 of the Top 50 villains in wrestling history by the WWE. Piper currently hosts a podcast titled "Piper's Pit" on PodcastOne.
Funny girl last week and one this week too!! Ester Steinberg, a comedy writer and performer based in Los Angeles, started her career performing stand-up on high school lunch tables in Tampa, Florida. While attending New York University, she took full advantage of the city's thriving comedy scene and quickly became a regular at Caroline's New Talent Night. Before long, she was touring nationwide. Now at the ripe age of 24, she writes and stars in “Becoming LA,” a web series showcasing her talent for sketch and improv through an array of crazy characters. Ester performs at the Laugh Factory, Comedy Store, Improv and has trained at the infamous Groundlings theater. She hosts her own monthly show at the Kibitz Room at Canter’s frequented by comedians such as Bill Burr, TJ Miller, and Natasha Leggero. Ester has been featured in Time Out New York and most recently performed at the prestigious Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland. Her style of comedy is smart and witty with immense energy, theatrical character act-outs and edgy one-liners.
Join me as I interview my good friend and start of Oxygen's hit show Funny Girls! !Nicole Aimee Schreiber grew up outside of Detroit with “a life of constant disappointment to her overachieving Jewish mother.” Despite being voted Class Clown for high school senior superlatives, Nicole did not pursue comedy immediately and graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in Pre-Med and Art History. Nicole went on to work in international sales and marketing in the fashion industry before working in advertising, focusing on social media marketing. However, Nicole felt like something was missing, so she left her successful career and gravitated towards the world of acting, improv and standup comedy to satiate her need for knowledge, attention and rejection. Now a part time quirky café waitress by day and joke slinging comedian by night, Nicole writes jokes about her own life and how she feels about herself and others.

A few months ago I did what maybe considered the greatest episode, certainly the longest episode of Inappropriate Earl with my 2 stand up comedy friends Chris Ramirez and Cole Young. The episode never aired due to me not knowing what fragment disc meant so thanks to a little Tech Angel named Charlie he was able to recover 26 minutes of a well over 2 hour episode. While I was VERY SAD that I lost that episode and I'm VERY HAPPY that my Tech Angel Charlie was at least able to recover a little bit for you all to enjoy!! The girl in the bikini has NOTHING to do with the episode, I'm just trying to get the numbers but neither Chris or Cole look like her. Her name is Petra Verkaik and asking me how many times I've jacked off to her is like asking me how many times I've breathed today?!!
