Ed Asner – A Man & His Prostate
Legendary Ed Asner, winner of seven Emmy Awards and known to generations of fans as Lou Grant in the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Santa in Elf and as the voice of Carl in Pixar and Disney’s Up, performs at An Grianán Theatre for the very first time in ‘A Man & His Prostate’.
“It’s got wonderful humor and it’s got truth in it,” Asner says of the play written by Ed Weinberger, who, like Asner, has earned numerous Emmy Awards for his television work.
Weinberger wrote for comedy legend Bob Hope, while also plying his craft for stand-up comics Richard Pryor and Dick Gregory. Additionally, Weinberger put his writing skills to work on television for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, The Dean Martin Show, and Taxi.
