The readers always ask what it's like to write for a TV show ... so I'll tell you. Just like with columns, you have good days and bad days. You learn that a room full of comedy writers is the world's toughest audience. You learn that farts are always funnier than any well-crafted punchline. You learn how an astounding number of things can make a difference between an entertaining show and a crappy one. You laugh a lot. You make fun of everyone. Everyone makes fun of you. None of it ever gets old. It's competitive as hell.Hi Bill.
