Alan Thicke

Actor, humorist, and author, 'How to Raise Kids Who Won't Hate You'

You probably know him best as the Golden Globe and Emmy nominee (seven times), often hailed as “America’s Dad” for his seven years as patriarch Jason Seaver on Growing Pains.

This popular “Go-to Boomer” is the guy they call for recurring roles on contemporary TV comedies such as How I Met Your Mother, Tosh.0, Will Farrell’s Funny or Die, Attack of the Show, Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show, I’m with the Band (Disney)…and in movies such as last year’s The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard, with Will Farrell and Jeremy Piven, and the upcoming I Hate You, Dad with Adam Sandler.

Alan has hosted blockbuster television event specials as diverse as The Emmy Awards; ABC's Olympic Gala, ABC's Disney Christmas and Easter Parades, the Miss Universe and Miss USA Pageants; Showtime's Comedy All-Stars; and NBC's World's Greatest Magic.

In addition, Alan’s amusing punditry is a welcome invitation to talk shows including Joy Behar, Bill Maher, Regis and Kelly, GMA, and the Today Show.

Appearing in person, Alan has headlined the main Vegas showrooms of the Hilton, Desert Inn, and Sands, as well as Atlantic City’s Resorts International, and the Foxwoods and Turning Stone Casinos.

Alan’s two humor books, HOW MEN HAVE BABIES: The Pregnant Father’s Survival Guide, and HOW TO RAISE KIDS WHO WON’T HATE YOU are perennial favorites, especially now that his middle son is a global Rock Star and fans are curious!

In recent years, HIS DISTINCTIVE CHARM AND HUMOR HAVE ESTABLISHED ALAN THICKE AS ONE OF AMERICA’S MOST SOUGHT-AFTER EVENT HOSTS AND KEYNOTE SPEAKERS.
