The quintessential character actor Stephen Tobolowsky has appeared in hundreds of television shows and films during his career, including memorable roles in GROUNDHOG DAY, SPACEBALLS, MISSISSIPPI BURNING, and CALIFORNICATION. He is currently starring in HBO’s SILICON VALLEY, THE GOLDBERGS, and Norman Lear’s recent revival of ONE DAY AT A TIME. A masterful story-teller, his serial radio podcast of autobiographical stories, THE TOBLOWSKY FILES, has become a cult phenomenon and platform for his witty and introspective stories of life, love, triumph, catastrophe, and the entertainment industry. The stories shared on his podcast became the basis for his first book, The Dangerous Animals Club, as well as the inspiration for his most recent book, My Adventures with God, the story of his lifelong relationship to spirituality, and particularly Judaism, told through reflections of his time growing up in Texas, his early years as an actor and his becoming a husband and father.
