“It was so random,” says comedian Dan Cummins of his former TV job. “I hosted Playboy’s morning show on the actual Playboy Channel.“
Like many comics, Cummins has auditioned for acting roles over the years. “I just kind of figured out that hosting things was easier than trying out for acting roles. I don’t have any interest in going to acting classes.”
He liked the fact that the job utilized a variety of skills.
“I did a monologue with my co-host that was the closest thing to my stand-up, so I got to use that muscle. I got to meet people. We did celebrity interviews, men’s lifestyle stories and topical stuff.”
And there are naked ladies. “Yes there were,” he says. “Not a bad way to start the day.”
