‘Professional Therapist’ Dr. Katz Is Back

Do you remember the adage, “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?” Well, for me, it’s finally coming true—again. And if you were a devotee of Dr. Jonathan Katz, TV’s animated professional therapist to-the-stars, you should be thrilled too because he’s seeing patients once again!

The Peabody Award-winning cartoon is not being resurrected on its signature SquiggleVision, the crude but ingenious animation software designed by the show’s writer and creator, Tom Snyder. Instead, fans will now be able catch up with the doctor and his star-studded clientele (Ray Romano, Sarah Silverman, e.g.) on Audible, where the show is currently making a 15-episode return—as a podcast.

During its seven-year run on Comedy Central, Dr. Katz executed one of the best Jewish comedies of all time, featuring the eponymous Jonathan Katz as a delightfully soft-spoken psychotherapist, Laura Silverman as his eye-rolling receptionist, and H. Jon Benjamin (now of Archer and Bob’s Burgers fame) as his loafing but loving adult son. Nearly every scene takes place between these three hilarious Jewish principals, or between Katz and his professional comedian patients, who deliver their stand-up routines from the sofa.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
