Read today's New York Times profile of my friend Andy Kindler, with whom I co-created a pilot for AMC a few months ago. Andy is truly truly truly one of the funniest and smartest people I've ever known, not to mention exceptionally nice and not nearly as cranky in person as he makes himself out to be on stage.
As much as 1000 words can capture him, this article does a pretty damned good job. Hopefully everyone will notice it and realize this guy should be a star.
Here's a great Andy line from his "State of the Industry" address in Montreal this year (highlights here):
"What's wrong with [Comedy Central show] Mind of Mencia is that they picked the least funny body part of Carlos Mencia."
