Fred Willard - Actor, Comedian
Fred Willard - Actor, Comedian
By Dulcy Brightman

A Career Dedicated to Comedy
Fred Willard is an actor and comedian. His many awards include: 2003 Emmy Creative Arts Awards for “Modern Family” season 4, the Critics’ Awards in January 2007, and the “American Comedy” award for “Funniest Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture”. Mr. Willard has appeared in many feature films, television specials, and live stage performances. In 2014, he has not slowed down, at age 74, he has appeared on such shows as ”The Queen Latifah Show”, “Inside Comedy”, “Hollywood Game Night”, and “Review”.

Not long ago (in 2012), I had an invitation to attend several improv troupe shows with the “Mo Ho’s” at Second City, Los Angeles, California. Mr. Willard, starred in several one act scenes produced by his wife, Mary. This was at approximately the same time that he was appearing in “Modern Family”.

Back in the early 1990’s, Mr. Willard, and producers from a division of Comedy Central noticed many of my television series shows, entitled “Cable Personals”. At that time, “Cable Personals” was being broadcast in New York City and here in Hollywood, California.

Not soon after I had produced a rather outlandish Reality Television Comedy Show in downtown Manhattan, I was contacted by an Associate Producer at Comedy Central, asking me to create a show in which Mr. Willard would star.

After several long distance phone calls to me in New York City, I immediately came up with a show I that I named, “At the Beach”. At the time of the initial discussions, I imagined the creation of an entire show idea on the spot! Not easy to do under pressure, mind you.

The “Craft Services” food was provided by former Kinks Band Member, and also Chicago Second City Comedy Club Member, Scot Paris, who was then owner of The Scot Paris Bakery. This bakery was located in lower Manhattan, and specialized in elaborately decorated, traditional, and non-traditional cakes supplied to only the best establishments in New York City. Many years later, Mr. Paris lost his bakery due to the debris from the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Towers. He lost his life due to inhaling this debris, and trying to salvage his expensive baking equipment that amounted to thousands of dollars. At the time, Mr. Paris was considered one of the best pastry chefs in America, having studied at the Waldorf Astoria.

Mr. Willard’s producer at Comedy Central informed me that his series was in need of footage for “Access America”, which would include my show, “At the Beach.” My show was included in the “Access America,” which was then broadcast nationwide.
