EDIT: Gotta go, but thanks everyone for all the questions!
I’m Jonathan Katz and I know what the music means.
I am a comedian, actor, producer and writer. I was raised by a podcaster and a blogger in New York City.
I met my wife on Christmas day 1979. She didn’t know it was Christmas. I didn’t know it was 1979. Later that year I formed a seminal band named Katz and Jammers whose work has been compared to other things.
I am the co-creator, along with Tom Snyder, of Dr. Katz: Professional Therapist, an animated show which ran for 6 seasons on Comedy Central.
I am a compulsive comedian, name dropper, a snappy dresser, and a lover of Audio,
Dr. Katz: The Audio Files on Audible.com/drkatz is the latest iteration of my best known work.
I was the New York State Table Tennis Champion in 1964 and blah blah blah.
Listen to my new audio series version of Dr. Katz on the Audible app Guests include Ray Romano, Ted Danson, Sarah Silverman and more.
Ask Me Anything!
Is the animated series of Dr Katz ever coming back for a new season?
That's up to YOU!
Have you ever had a therapist tell you they were inspired to become a therapist by Dr. Katz?
Good morning from the West Coast! I used to host a folk/roots music radio show, had no idea of your musical background. What are you listening to these days?
Keb Mo. Taj Mahal. Bonnie Raitt.
Hey Mr. Katz~! Wanted to tell you I'm a big fan (who isn't?) but I don't have any suuuuper relevant questions, except maybe...do you still enjoy playing table tennis? (also, I like that you call it table tennis instead of ping-pong. The mark of a true professional.)
I'm a writer too--I'm wondering what your favorite genre to work in is, if you ever write stuff totally crazy, just to experiment.
Also, low key--if you ever want a crazy, fresh talent: I'm available. (just for the record, that's a reaction gif, not some weird link to my contact info or anything.)
Thanks for reading!
I do, but I don't play as well as I used to. I play it like air guitar.
I like drama, and somewhere in there I'll find comedy. But if I approach comedy head on, I may get lost.
