Mark Jordan Legan is one of the best people I know. Mark has been an NPR contributor for ten years, leading the listening audience to obscure and often forgotten cinema. Before that he was an actor and a stand-up comedian. He has written for more TV shows that I can count. More than that, he is my closest friend. My boon companion.
We’ve known each other since our college days. We were best men at each other’s weddings. We’ve written together, produced TV shows and pilots. Together we did the cult comedy THANKS and the even more cult pilot EARTH SCUM. We get together every week to watch weird movies. He has the fastest mind with a joke of anyone I know. We’ve seen each other through some rough times and I’ve always come out of trouble smiling, mostly due to Mark’s indefatigable sense of humor. I salute you, Mark. I hope we have many more years of the same!
