“The League’s” Paul Scheer Wants You to Stop Taking Pictures of Your Food

Welcome to My Morning Routine, where we talk with musicians, actors, politicians, and athletes about the foods they start and end their days with—and everything in between.

Actor, comedian, and writer Paul Scheer is best known as the earnest, weird, often annoying Dr. Andre Nowzick on The League, the show that’s sort of about fantasy football but mostly about a group of friends in their 30s.

There’s also a sushi restaurant I love, called Saito’s. It’s sandwiched between a doughnut …read more
