This week we broadcast the first of a two part conversation with comedy writer, creator and performer, Pat Hazell. I visited him in his home in Austin, Texas where we had a delightful time catching up. We have been friends for nearly 40 years and haven't seen each other for at least the past 10 years. Pat was one of the break-out hit performers/presenters at the 2018 MAGIC Live! convention. He has appeared many times on "The Tonight Show" including with Johnny Carson and Jay Leno. He was also one of the comedy writers for the "Seinfeld" TV show. He has a lot of interesting stories, many of which are shared this week with some saved for Part Two next week.
You can watch a couple videos of Pat (one of his appearance on Johnny Carson's show and the other of a lecture he gave on Johnny Carson), see some candid photos of when he was young, read the blog, listen to the podcast and download the MP3 file at: https://www.themagicwordpodcast.com/scottwellsmagic/497-pat-hazell-part-one
