This week on the show we're thrilled to welcome the creative powerhouse Gloria Calderón Kellett. Well-known for the critically acclaimed relaunch of "One Day At A Time," she is a show-runner, writer, actor and all-around force-to-be-reckoned-with. She talks with Dave and Brad about her writing process, finding new ideas, sitcom writing, writing as a collaboration, editing for humor, and much, much more. Gloria and Dave have been married for a number of years. (Which number is anybody's guess.) So this marks the first time that one of the ComicLab hosts exchanged smooches with one of the guests. Sorry, Jake. BUT FIRST... Speaking of humor writing, Brad's older son, Alex, has become fascinated with writing comedy. And that has resulting in a strange combination of pride and fear for dad.
