Comedian Visits LA & Gets 13 Celebs to Let Him Sleepover
Unless you have somewhere to crash, like with friends or family, one of the biggest costs of traveling is for the hotel. So when New Yorker Mark Malkoff, a comedian and filmmaker, came to Los Angeles for a visit, he decided to test his luck at getting famous people to let him spend a night in their homes. 13 of them actually said yes, and thus his video "Celebrity Sleepovers" was born.
Among those opening up their inner sanctums to the total stranger for a full night's rest are "Family Ties" star Justine Bateman (who put Malkoff up for the night in her treehouse), "Full House" actor Dave Coulier (who let Malkoff slumber in his SUV), and "Bridesmaids" director Paul Feig, (who read Malkoff his own bio as a bedtime story).
Not everyone let Malkoff sleep over for a night; the funnyman got to take some daytime naps at the homes of famous people, like “Private Practice” star Kate Walsh, Kato Kaelin, actor Steven Weber, “24” actress Mary Lynn Rajskub, YouTube’s iJustine, and musician Lisa Loeb.
Alas, Larry King turned him down.
Said Malkoff via email: “I was shocked celebrities said yes. Many even cooked meals for me. On the embarrassing side, I mistakenly saw one celebrity in their underwear.” Zoinks!
