Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Jason Stuart, prolific film and TV character actor (MY WIFE & KIDS, GIA, HANK, BIRTH OF A NATION) and one of the first openly gay stand-up comedians, on the tenacity and work ethic he inherited from his immigrant parents; his thought process when he creates a new stand-up routine; appearing on THE DATING GAME at the height of its fame (and why Jim Lange was the perfect host for that show); and the impact that watching THAT CERTAIN SUMMER had on Jason when it originally aired in 1972. SHUT UP, I’M TALKING: Coming Out in Hollywood and Making It to the Middle, a very funny and often poignant look at Jason’s life and career, is now available in softcover and as an eBook through CCB Publishing
