Entertainer Jeff Garlin directs and stars in the new movie Dealin' With Idiots.

He's also behind the mic in the recently launched podcast, By The Way.  Some of the biggest names in Hollywood have spoken with Garlin on the digital show.

Garlin also stars in and is co-executive producer of the TV series 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' where he plays Jeff Greene, the loyal friend and manager to Larry David.

In Dealin' With Idiots, Garlin tells the story of a famous comedian following the competitiveness in his son's youth league baseball team. The movie was inspired by his real life.

"I sat at the games and watched the behavior of the parents and thought 'why do they behave this way?" said Garlin.

The movie is completely improvised.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there.
