Description

As kids, most of us look up to our Dads. A Dad should be a positive role model who shows us the value of hard work. Dads are supposed to teach us the difference between right and wrong. But that’s not the story we’re telling here. This is the story of Gary Vider, a successful stand-up comedian, who grew up with a Dad unlike any other. Manny Vider was a con man, whose schemes and lies span over 4 decades. It’s been 24 years since Gary has seen his father and he doesn’t have a clue what he’s up to these days. But Gary is ready to open Pandora’s Box and take listeners on a deeply personal and comedic journey to uncover the outrageous truth about his Dad before he attempts to meet him face to face. Does Manny regret his con man life? Is he finally on the straight and narrow? Or is he still wearing a fake neck brace, forging documents, and creating sham businesses to scam anyone who will take the bait? Welcome to the hilarious and heartfelt true story of Gary Vider and his #1 Dad.
