Drinks with Tony: Ned Vizzini
Vizzini was an amazing writer and very cool guy. I interviewed him for his second book, “It’s Kind of a Funny Story.” It was adapted to the screen and starred Zach Galifianakis.
Sadly, Vizzini killed himself December 19, 2013. As you’ll hear in the interview taped in 2007 he was upbeat and open to discussing how he handled his depression.
He was executive story editor on the TV show “Believe” and moved to Los Angeles leaving his New Yorker roots. Last time we spoke he told me how much he loved LA and working in television.
Thanks for listening.
