Relive the nostalgia of youth

Omaha native Pat Hazell relives his childhood in his one-man comedy The Wonder Bread Years. He touches on topics from his youth that include sugar cereals, Toughskin jeans, Jiffy Pop, Kool-Aid and long road trips in the family station wagon. Hazell was a writer for the TV comedy Seinfeld and was named one of the five funniest people in America by Showtime.
