Jeffrey Tambor has spent more than 30 years as an actor. A native of San Francisco, he started in television in the 1970s, and his career has followed a simple track since: he plays important authority figures (doctors, lawyers, judges) and self-important pseudo-authority figures. He portrayed the sweet, sad, hilariously self-centered sidekick Hank Kingsley on The Larry Sanders Show in the 1990s, and this decade played the patriarch of the Bluth family on Arrested Development. In addition to his work as an actor, he’s also a teacher, having worked for many years alongside late legendary acting teacher Milton Katselas. He teaches regular classes and workshops in Los Angeles, including one March 21st at the American Film Institute.

It has received plaudits from publications like Time Magazine (which called it “Pick of the Podcasts”) and Salon.com. It was also honored by the iTunes editorial staff as a “classic” Best of iTunes selection. Since April 2013, the show has been distributed by NPR.
