I've been writing television
comedy for a long, long time. Among the series I've had the opportunity and
good fortune to write and/or produce are, Good Times, Maude,
Chico and the Man, The Jeffersons, All In the Family,
Dear John, Here and Now, and Los Beltran.
And recently, I had my first animation experience in once again working with
Mr. Bill Cosby on his Nickelodeon series, "Fatherhood."
In the non-television world, my work includes a cover story for Cigar
Aficionado magazine, the novelization of Mr. Cosby's "Fat Albert" screenplay
for Harper-Collins, and contributing a good amount of ghost-written humor
material for a book credited to a well-known political commentator. Because
of a confidentiality agreement, I am unable to mention his name. But I think
I am not forbidden from telling you that he has his own radio show and is an
over-reactive, angry man with the sense of humor and fair play of Charles
Manson. And in no way do I mean that to degrade Mr. Manson.
I've also started writing a bi-monthly humor
column for the popular e-magazine at
grandparents.com. Hopefully, they've removed the candid shots of
me in my "Borat" swimsuit.
I hope you enjoy Grandpa Rules and have some laughs along the way. I am
currently working on another humor book that looks at older guys and how
they... What was it again? I'll get back to you on that one.
