Grew up reading "Mad" and listening to Bill Cosby, Smothers Brothers and Jonathan Winters albums, until I could recite every word. Listened to "They're Coming To Take Me Away Ha, Ha!" until they came and took me away. Love stand up and mostly sketch comedy- Laugh In, Monty Python, SNL, Mad TV- all of it! Weekly high school newspaper assignment was to "write something funny"- years later I'm still at it, and someday, I WILL !! Have written several unpublished books (serious ones, I think) and a script or two- would love to write feature films for sketch characters, as I BECOME THEM. Oh well, I have to model my behavior after someone, and Woody Allen already has taken God.
