One day, I pulled into the lot at Fox Studios, to meet with someone who ended up not hiring me for anything. After the attack on the World Trade Center, studio security was substantially beefed up. I, frankly, never understood the connection.

While one studio guard inspected my trunk for exploding spare tires, a female studio guard approached my car to check my I.D. I immediately noticed this goofy smile on her face.

I handed her my Driver’s License through the window. When she examined my license, her smile faded

“What’s the matter?” I asked.

“There’s no problem, “ she replied. “I just thought you were somebody else.”


“I thought you were that comedian. Adam Shandling.”

Adam Shandling.

The composite Jewish funnyman.
