TomBergeron.com, Celebrating Online Narcissism Since 2017

Now I'm playing in a another "Neighborhood"

I actually got to whistle while I worked on this.  And sang.  And had a ball!   Available 10/25

Here's some improvised whistling to the album's title tune

My Broadcast Singing Debut From 1981

This aired on WHEB-FM in Portsmouth, NH, where I hosted a nightly show from 1980-1983.  A parody of  "Bette Davis Eyes" and a celebration of caffeine, it had no connection to the Bruce Baum version released later with the same title

On the acting front, I recently took a Twilight Zone-ish trip...

From Writer-Director Ben Shelton ("Candy Jar"), Emmy winner Jean Smart ("Fargo," "Designing Women"), RJ Walker ("Atlanta") and Yours Truly...

Enter the world of The Messenger

Some Backstory

Here's the trailer for the Ben Shelton-directed Netflix film "Candy Jar."  Such a great cast including Sami Gayle, Jacob Latimore, Helen Hunt, Uzo Aduba and Christina Hendricks.  Ben cast me as curmudgeonly Principal Nelson.  It was on this production that he & I decided to work together again on what became "The Messenger."

About The Messenger

Meet The Messenger

He's tired and about to go rogue

For 40 years he's been delivering envelopes.  On each envelope is the recepient's fingerprint.

You'll Know Why He's There

He's handing you an envelope.  It has YOUR fingerprint on it.  But IN it...

He's The Messenger of Death

 ...is the news few people want.  The news of when you'll die.

Jill offered to re-record it (she mispronounced my hometown "Hay-Vrill" as "Have-a-rill") but this tune is too good not to share.  I love it.

One More Thing Before You Go

Our First Collaboration.  I lure Tim & Sam Daly onto a little dance show.  Written & Directed by Ben Shelton
