Langham on advice he was given by Larry Sanders Show co-star
90s audiences will remember Wallace Langham for his role as head writer Phil on The Larry Saunders Show.
The satire sitcom, which ran for six years between 1992 and 1998, shared a behind-the-scenes look at the production of fictional late-night talk show host Larry Sanders.
The show featured several comics in its cast, but Langham did not have a background in comedy. However, while chatting on the YouTube channel Unger The Radar in 2018, the actor opened up about the advice the show’s creator Garry Shandling once gave him about starting out.
He explained: “There was a moment when I realised that I was surrounded by all these comics, and I said to Gary ‘I should probably try this, and he says ‘you need five years'” Langham added: “He said that’s just what comics [need]. They need five years of seasoning before they’re any good.”
