He just released a new album called “You’re Not Alone.” It’s his first in almost a decade. It’s got a message of inspiration – sometimes delivered in song, sometimes in spoken word and Andrew reveals a lot of himself in the record, too. This month he kicks off a huge tour with dates all over the world.
Andrew talks with Jesse about being compared to Mister Rogers, what he has been doing since his last album, and why sometimes he feels like Sisyphus – a character from Greek mythology forced to forever to roll a boulder up a mountain only to see it fall back down every time he reaches the top.
His latest project is an HBO TV show called “Barry.” Hader stars as the show’s title character, Barry Berkman. Barry’s an ex-marine turned low rent hitman in Ohio, turned aspiring actor in Los Angeles.
Bill tells Jesse about working as a production assistant when he first came out to Los Angeles, the influence his parents had on his taste in film, and the struggle he had to project his voice.
