When a six-year old boy thinks like a grown man, they call him a child prodigy.

But what’s the best way to describe a grown man who thinks like a six-year old boy?

That’s the problem my wife faces every time she has to introduce me.

Hi, I'm Alan Katz.

Here I am enjoying Take Me Out of the Bathtub.
Good thing you didn't catch me reading Stinky Thinking!

As a print and television writer, I've majored in silliness for more than 30 years. During that time, I've written for a whole bunch of Emmy-nominated TV shows (five years worth of parody songs and other funny stuff for The Rosie O’Donnell Show), animated series like Taz-Mania, Disney’s Raw Toonage and Goof Troop, several editions of the Grammy Awards and Tony Awards, Kids Are People Too, a slew of Nickelodeon projects including Whoopi’s Littleburg, network specials, game shows, articles for publications including the New York Times and the New York Daily News, and I've created hundreds of comic books, trading cards, web videos, and other special projects for kids and their parents.

But my proudest achievement is the brilliance of Simone, Andrew, Nathan, and David, the children my wonderful wife Rose and I “co-authored.” They have taken me to new heights of silliness, and they are the reason I'm a happy man.
