Of all the people Christy has interviewed for this A La Carte series, J.P. Manoux has the greatest how-do-we-know-each-other? story of all. No one else will ever come close. But you may know him from his decades in comedy, television and commercials. J.P. talks about growing up as the eldest of seven kids in Santa Barbara, studying at Northwestern University’s prestigious drama program, how he got his start and how he’s maintained such longevity as a working actor for so long — including playing one of the Fruit of the Loom guys and a variety of mimes. He’s done a ton of guest spots and recurring roles on series including “ER” and “Veep” — he’s one of those “that guys” that you’ve seen everywhere. And now you can hear him, too. Enjoy.
