Adventures in Culinary with Keith Coogan!
Oh, hey! Welcome back to another wickedly delicious episode of this crazy podcast! Joining me this time around is one Mr. Keith Coogan! A Hollywood icon who's films were cornerstones in our lives... Adventures in Babysitting, Cousins, Toy Soldiers, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, as well as countless commercials and television appearances...He gets candid about his family's connection to Hollywood history via his grandfather, Jackie Coogan, who was one of the first child stars back in the 1920's starring in Charlie Chaplin's "The Kid", was also one of the very first stars to be heavily merchandised on various products, and because of the mishandling of his earnings, his legal case in 1939 helped enact The California Child Actor's Bill or Coogan's Law to help ensure and protect future child actors by having a portion of their earnings set aside in a trust. And if that wasn't enough, Keith's grandfather went on to act in a little tv show called The Addams Family as Uncle Fester!! So it's only natural that Keith went forward and carved his own path through Hollywood and into our hearts by being a part of those 80's and 90's cult classic films that we all still watch and enjoy to this very day. The icing on the cake?? He loves to cook! His enthusiasm and passion for food made for some amazing conversation. Highly educated, and knowledgeable as all get out, Keith wound up picking MY brain and teaching me a thing to two about culinary history, his own methods for cooking ribs, steaks, sweet potatoes, and more! From the origins of Stone Soup, to how his role as Kenny in Don't Tell Mom inspired so many to become Chef's themselves, Keith's impact and influence on pop culture is rightfully getting the recognition he so deserves. Now go prepare your self a snack, grab a tasty beverage, and make sure the dishes are done, man! 🤪 Enjoy Adventures in Culinary with Keith Coogan, and me! Chef Nikki Meow!
