Paul Reiser talks returning to stand-up, working with Woody Allen and seeing Helen Hunt naked




Paul Reiser was a fixture on Must-See TV as the star of Mad About You. So when we got him on the phone recently to preview his Friday stand-up show at the Club at Treasure Island, we couldn't help asking him about his co-star, Helen Hunt -- specifically, her nude scenes in the acclaimed new movie The Sessions.

"It’s a very tricky movie to make, I would think, so intimate, so potentially melodramatic but it had such a great, light touch," he said. "And it was a great, great role for her."

Yes, but did she ever show up naked on the set of Mad About You?

"All the time. She would come in like that and we would have to persuade her to put on a jacket. We’re like: Don’t show up nude. After a couple of years she got the hang of it."

Reiser performs at 9 p.m. Saturday at the Club at Treasure Island. Tickets are $40. For details, click here.
