Interview with Rowby Goren, Writer for Pink Lady ...and Jeff


Well, kiddies, time to pop some corn, pour yourselves a Kahlua and cream, and put on “I Luv I Jah” by Bad Brains, because this is Mendo Talks to Rather Interesting People from Around the Internet!

You may or may not be aware of this, but I’ve talked a lot of shit about Pink Lady …and Jeff. So much so, that one of the writers felt the need to set the record straight.

Rowby Goren

So in keeping with the fact that absolutely every aspect of pop culture is inextricably tied to every other aspect of pop culture, I now get the chance to pick the mind of someone who was a writer for Laugh-In, knew two-thirds of Spinal Tap before it even existed, directed a movie starring a current U.S. Senator, somehow found a way to turn a violent R-rated movie into a kids’ show, wrote alongside Sid Caesar, and won an Emmy for writing jokes on Hollywood Squares.

Yeesh! And I thought Howard Hughes deserved a movie about him.

Yes, I was just as shocked as anyone when Rowby Goren himself showed up on our site recently (which he found by googling himself, how awesome is that?), so I pounced at the chance to find out just what the hell was going on at NBC in those days. What I got was more than I could have ever imagined.

Let’s find out what a man who’s done all this could possibly have to say for himself! Together!
