David Mandel is not only the second 2016 Emmy Nominee on my show, but he is single handedly responsible for me wanting to be a showrunner. He wrote my favorite Seinfeld episode "Bizarro Jerry". He wrote for SNL, wrote/EP/Directed Curb your Enthusiasm. He is now the showrunner for the critically acclaimed HBO show "Veep". David was nice enough to give me an hour of his time. It was pretty surreal to be sitting and chatting about the kind of comedy that shaped my sense of humor with the guy who helped shape it. Awesome show!
