About Today’s Guest, Justin Halpern:

Justin HalpernImagine this one: Your funny stories about your dad end up becoming an international craze. One day you are writing funny musings about your dad on Twitter and soon after you write a New York Times bestseller…and then your stories get turned into a television show with William Shatner. That is pretty much what happened with today’s guest Justin Halpern. It is one heck of a story. Time to meet the man behind the Dad (errr, that sounded bad). Enjoy!

A bit about Justin:

In the summer of 2009, Justin Halpern created a Twitter account as a way to archive his father’s no-holds-barred, expletive-ridden words of wisdom. Within a month, became an Internet sensation. More than 2.5 million people currently follow Sam Halpern’s musings on Twitter and Facebook alone.

Justin’s first book, (HarperCollins/ItBooks), a collection of essays about growing up with his unapologetically honest father, is a #1 New York Times bestseller.

Justin is also the creator of $#*! My Dad Says (WarnerBros/CBS), a sitcom starring William Shatner, Nicole Sullivan, Will Sasso, and Jonathan Sadowski. He serves as the show’s co-executive producer along with his writing partner Patrick Schumacker.
