I was invited to tour the set of Kevin Can Wait and there was also a Q&A with none other Kevin James and Erinn Hayes who plays his wife. Bloggers took a bus and headed to Long Island. Director Andy Fickman welcomed us and asked Kevin and Erinn questions that we wrote down. I asked Kevin and Erinn since the show is about Kevin retiring When so you see yourself retiring and what would be the first thing you would do when you retire? Do they have a bucket list?
Erinn said she wants a Volkswagen camper van to go cruise around on an adventure. Kevin said he loves what he do and want to do it as long as he can (stand up, movies, comedy). No retiring anytime soon. Then Erinn said she wants t retire between seasons. She also enjoys what she’s doing.
Andy gave us the behind the scenes scoop on how the cameras capture those moments, showed us the pictures on the wall are of the actual actors, Mets souvenirs ( Kevin said if you’re a Yankee fan you shouldn’t be there) Lol. If there’s a scene in the bathroom that requires running water they have to call in a plumber to start the water and stop it as soon as that scene finishes because it doesn’t really work. Who would have known? Andy also mentioned they love when there’s a pizza scene because the staff can’t wait to eat the pizza. He said the pizza is very good. I also believed he said the audience gets some too. Ok can I just be an extra? I need an agent. I absolutely loved the set and live the show even more. I’ve been a Kevin James fan for a long time. I like his character and the fact that he’s playing a husband and father. The whole cast is funny.
Here is a clip of the upcoming Halloween episode airing 10/31 8pm on CBS. Check your local listings. Enjoy!
