Screenwriter, television development executive, and pizza enthusiast Dan McCarthy mirrors his triple threat identity by talking about his mysterious last name, the origin of Santa Claus, and TRL era Carson Daly.
“My buddy Dan McCarthy is gonna do what Dan McCarthy is gonna do. That’s how he rolls. That said, Dan is quite a generous guy. For the taping of this episode, he gave me a really expensive ice cream sandwich to eat as a snack. He didn’t care about the price. He just wanted me to have the experience of eating a pricy ice cream sandwich. Dan is generous. So generous, in fact, that he is the only guest thus far to tell three separate untold stories back-to-back-to-back. He three-peated like the Lakers during the Shaq/Kobe era. Swish.”
