Meet Steinbeck's "Step-Dad" James Tobey.

Whenever Jim and I have to travel, we ask James Tobey, our good friend from Omaha who is now in Los Angeles pursuing an acting career, to come and apartment sit for us. He and Steinbeck have always had a special bond between them.

(When James comes just to visit, it's the only time I see Steinbeck move. He will jump up on whatever chair James is standing next to, and beg for attention.)

Recently, James taped a comedy program called "Fat Island" which appears about a minute and a half into this collection of comedy bits. He's the first one interviewed in the chair and is the last one standing as the "winner" of the competition.
