larry king


wanna know what a typical day is like for me?? well, i did a day-in-the-life vlog for this week’s video… enjoy!!

Watch on

Here’s my interview with the legend Larry King that goes off the rails in a beautiful way within the first 60 seconds and never gets back on track. In the interview we talk about Ducktales, Jean-Ralphio’s easter egg, a new Jewish superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, my new book with Laura Moses and I do my spot on impression of the legend himself. Enjoy!

King: A downward spiral, as I understand, begins, right?  You learn from your mother that Jeff has a full-sized mannequin in his closet.  You are–that must tell you…something seriously wrong, right?

S. Dahmer: We thought, again, it was related to his homosexual desires.

King: You then knew he was a homosexual?

S. Dahmer: Yes.  Oh, yes.

King: And you knew it.  How did you handle that?

S. Dahmer: Not well.

L. Dahmer: Not very well.  I’m a believer in absolute truth.  I think that people that don’t believe in absolute truth are maybe prone to be more liberal with error.  And I believe that the Bible teaches that that is something that you should avoid.  Just like too much food, too much drink, too much of anything.  And I took it as something to be conquered, I felt.  So I took him to a psychiatrist.  And really it was for mostly, at that point, the drinking.
