Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel

We recorded this episode of Really Famous in the ultra-luxurious Empire Suite on the top floor of the Renaissance New York Midtown Hotel. Thanks for the plush rooms and spectacular city views, @Rennymidtown!



Peter Scolari says:

You'll hear this and more on Really Famous.

"I had a raging father and an alcoholic mother."
"I entered into a depression that lasted 25 years.”
"I was diagnosed bipolar about 15 years ago."
"I’ve really struggled. People think I’m working all the time. I'm not."
I have to keep pushing buttons and showing up and auditioning for things.”

"I want to be in your damn living room, I want to be on your Netflix, on your Hulu, on your SciFi and your Bravo, on your AMC. I want you to binge watch me next year."
