Who knew that Dr. Phil could hold his own when it comes to comedy and even improv?
“He has really good comedic timing,” says Rachel Bloom, the star, co-creator and executive producer of “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,”
who recently worked with Dr. Phil when he made a cameo appearance on the CW Network show. “At first, I was trying to stay on [script] because I know he doesn’t usually do scripted acting jobs per se, but when I started improvising with him, he kind of picked it up and he’s a really naturally funny and clever person. And that’s what I didn’t expect. I didn’t expect him to be such a good improviser and so game to do improvs that were maybe irreverent in some ways.”
In the video above, Rachel joins Dr. Phil on his show and tells him, “You’re a terrific improviser … You’re a better improviser than a lot of actors working as actors in LA! It was really fun to work with you.”
