The borgasmord kid is in the house

Episode Notes

S5E11 -- Join us as we dive into the mind of former child star and restaurant entrepreneur Mason Reese. He'll take us on his journeys from TV to talk shows and beyond.. Beginning at age four, Reese appeared in television commercials, and was known for his red hair and the distinctive, high-pitched voice with which he delivered his lines. The most memorable of these was an ad for Underwood Deviled Ham, in which he mispronounced the word "smorgasbord" as "borgasmord." The commercial garnered Reese a Clio Award for Best Performance by a Male Actor in a Television Commercial. He appeared in over 75 commercials for numerous products, among which were Ivory Snow, Dunkin' Donuts' "Munchkins" donut holes, and Post Raisin Bran.

He attended Saint Michael's Montessori School, a non-denominational elementary school that was housed in St. Michael's Episcopal Church in Manhattan, through the fourth grade. In late 1975, he transferred to the Professional Children's School, also in Manhattan. Throughout the 1970s, Reese appeared in features and interviews on New York's WNBC-TV. He was a guest on numerous television talk shows,[2] most notably The Mike Douglas Show, where he made several appearances and also served as a guest host. In 1982, he and his mother voiced a series of syndicated, 90-second radio spots titled Mason and Mom, in which they offered lighthearted advice to children's questions, with Reese sharing a child's perspective, while his mother offered an adult's. At age eight, Reese wrote a memoir, titled, The Memoirs of Mason Reese, in cahoots with Lynn Haney (1974), joking to a Washington Post interviewer in 1982, "Oh yes, I think my second volume should be out any day now." After retiring from acting Reese became a restaurateur with multiple businesses in the New York City area.
