Tonight on Art Salon Live, Host Pia Louise invites, Actor, Screenwriter and Producer, Jim Piddock to share about the HBO Comedy Series, "Family Tree." Created and written by Christopher Guest and Jim Piddock. Produced by Lucky Giant and HBO in association with NBC Universal and the BBC. "Family Tree" is a comedy about a young British man, Tom Chadwick (played by Chris O'Dowd) unemployed with time on his hands. After receiving a mysterious box of 'curios' from a distant great aunt he goes in search of his geneology. Or perhaps Tom is just "Everyman" in search of himself. Its a storyline with characters and truths to which we can all relate. "Family Tree" is not so much a comedic story, but an up close examination of our own quirks and the human condition. We are introduced to a collection of odd characters that make up Tom's family. One of whom is his sister, Bea (played by ventriloquist, NIna Conti) who carries around a puppet monkey named, Monk (Nina Conti's real stage prop) who speaks and makes observations that Bea herself cannot. Tonight I get to speak to Jim Piddock who plays, Mr. Pfister, Owner of the shop, "Mr. Pfister's Bits and Bobs". Being a hypochondriac he spends a good amount of time on the website, istifatal.com. As a caring companion he is like family to Tom who lives above the shop..I have to find out why Mr. Pfister smells everything. http://www.hbo.com/family-tree#/family-tree/cast-and-crew/index.html Jim Piddock http://jimpiddock.com/
