Jay Thomas on His Children, Possible Stand-Up Return

Actor stops by the studio to talk about his show on Sirius XM Stars Too 108

Jay Thomas stopped by to promote his show on Sirius XM Stars Too 108 and told Howard that a lot of comedians he talked to on his show had endured rough (or at least odd) childhoods.

Jay added that he had to introduce Shuli at Caroline's tonight: "And I don't have an act!"

Howard thought Jay would do well, as he gave a killer toast at their (shared) agent's birthday party. Jay replied: "If I do well, I'm gonna be a stand-up comedian again."

Howard asked after Jay's family, so Jay laughed that one of his sons has become a crack shot: "He said to us recently, 'I don't want to go to college. I want to become a gunsmith. It's all I think about all day.'"

Jay laughed that his other son is an amateur prank caller - the kid recently called an old lady as a terrorist and made a mock-bomb threat, eliciting a near-raid on Jay's home by the local SWAT team: "The sheriff's department were really good to us."
