Jules is unemployed, unmarried and struggling to make it as a film and television writer in Los Angeles. Growing increasingly frustrated with his life, he wants advice. Bruce is his best friend. He is happily married, the proud father of a beautiful baby girl, and an increasingly successful film and television actor in Los Angeles. The only frustrating aspect of his life…is co-hosting this podcast. It’s Season One of ADVICE FROM GROWN-UPS. Jules struggles to find his way. Bruce juggles daddy-hood with a burgeoning performance career. Together, with a weekly guest and their less-than-impressed technician Gordo, they discuss everything under the sun: from Steve Urkel to Voltron to Bob Dylan to The Civil War to Jethro Tull to Marilyn Monroe to The Power Rangers. Everything, that is, except advice. The only sitcom/podcast about the worst advice podcast. Laugh a lot. Learn nothing.

At 33 I still feel like any day now someone will catch on that I have no idea what I'm doing in any part of my life and will say "Hey, wait a minute, you're not experienced enough at this!" Steeped with dry humor and wit along with seriously thought provoking questions, "Advice from Grown-Ups" will hit home with 20-30 somethings who feel like everyone has life figured out but them.
I can't help but laugh. He's a sad sad man, but he's funny as hell. I love listening to the banter b/w Bruce & Julien, and hope that would day Schwab will get his life together. Till then, I'm going to enjoy the schadenfreude.
Where was this when I needed it?
...and I still need the occasional tip from a "real" grown-up. And Gordo is the bomb, yo!!
