bune’s Top 10 Shows of the

Year in 2001.

In “World’s Greatest

Dad(?),” Carrane talks

about how hard it was for

him to deal with other people’s

success and his painful

obsession with fame.

“I haven’t done a oneperson

show in 18 years.

For me, I need to have

something to say,” Carrane

said. “This show lets me do


In the show, Carrane

talks about how the obsession

with fame leads him to

group therapy, but after 10

years in therapy — despite

having gotten married,

bought a townhouse and

adopting a cat – Carrane is

still unhappy.

When his therapist suggests

that Carrane and his

wife have a baby to bring

more joy into their life, he

sets out to become a firsttime

dad at age 52, at the

same time that his own father

is dying. From fertility

treatments to a disastrous

funeral, Carrane takes the

audience on a “funny and

poignant roller coaster of

life and death” and shares

his discovery that you

don’t have to be the “greatest”

to be a good dad.

One of the highlights

of the show is Carrane

telling the story of his

father’s funeral, which

happened three years ago.

When Carrane discovers

that his siblings and

the priest are conspiring

to prevent him from giving

a eulogy so he won’t

divulge any family secrets

about his father’s criminal

past, he creates a scene

that gets the Winnetka police


“Judy’s Beat Lounge is

a really nice space. It’s always

a great crowd,” Carrane

said. “I really hope

when people leave understand

that though I had

thought becoming famous

would give me a sense of

love, it was the birth of my

daughter helped me realize

I can’t give love from

something outside of myself.

That doesn’t mean

I’ve given up my dream of

becoming famous.”
