I am a filmmaker. This is an idea passed on to me by my late mentor and friend, Tom Mankiewicz. Tom always pushed me to view myself as filmmaker first and whatever title I have on a project second. When that's your attitude you take ownership, and the results are always better. I believe satire is one of god's greatest gifts to mankind. My favorite legal precedent is Hustler Magazine V. Falwell. My favorite comedians are Richard Prior, Bill Cosby, Bill Murry, Steve Martin, Eddie Murphy, Chris Rock, Ricky Gervais, Bernie Mac, and Andy Kaufman. I'm also a huge fan of Abbott and Costello and the Smothers Brothers.
