This Sunday, Ed Asner performs at the Long Center. A one man play that is based on a true-life experience, "A Man and His Prostate" is an unlikely comedy about a visit to the hospital in preparation for surgery he doesn’t want. WBAA's John Clare spoke with Asner about the performance.

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, on November 15, 1929, actor Ed Asner got his big break when he landed the part of gruff newsman Lou Grant on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. When that sitcom ended, Asner continued with the spin-off Lou Grant. He won Emmy Awards for both shows - and the same character! Asner's voice also starred in many animated features, including Pixar's Up. He served as president of the Screen Actors Guild from 1981-85.
