Okay, here's a rarity -- an episode that I wrote and I also appear in. It's from a 1990 series called THE MARSHALL CHRONICLES, created by Richard Rosenstock (who also created the brilliant FLYING BLIND). My partner, David and I wrote this episode and in the big wedding scene I play Phil and he plays my lover Steve. Yes, we're two gay guys at a Jewish wedding. Every Jewish wedding has one. At one point in the show, not only do I have to deliver a punch line but I have to do it while WALKING. This, my friends, is ACTING.
A few things worth noting: Marshall is well played by Joshua Beckett and Leslie is played by the truly wonderful Meredith Scott Lynn. Marshall's mother is Jennifer Salt, now a terrific writer (notably NIP/TUCK and the screenplay for EAT PRAY LOVE). James Burrows directed. He since has directed one or two other things.
This series had a short run on ABC and deserved a better fate. It was very funny.
