10 Life Lessons From Roger Sterling

Roger Sterling, Master of Smoke and Mirrors

Roger Sterling: ‘Mad Men”s comedic relief, TV’s most immature old man (after Charlie Sheen), and the ultimate “BAMF.” He has a lot of flaws, complexities, and his character’s arcs bring up some of the show’s most poignant observations on the purpose of life itself. But let’s not focus on Sterling’s spiritual journey, his failure as a husband and a father, or his overly-produced memoirs. Instead, let’s take a step back and learn how to live life to the fullest from the ultimate partying master.
