So sorry to hear of the death of comedy writer Alan Kirschenbaum. He was only 51. Alan co-created YES, DEAR and was involved in any number of series. I worked with him briefly on STARK RAVING MAD. And we punched up a lot of pilots together. Well... he did. I sat back and laughed. Alan was a wonderful guy. He had a great wit and a gentle soul. And was sooo much fun to be in a room with.
The cause of death is still unclear. My heart goes out to his family and friends. One of the main reasons I wanted to be a TV comedy writer was so I could surround myself with people like Alan Kirshenbaum. He will be greatly missed.
