Mark Rothman at Motor City Comic Con 2013

Motor City Comic Con is finally here. Today, I present one more great memory from our many years of covering MCCC.
Mark Rothman is a writer best known for having been involved with the creation and production of tv's Laverne and Shirley.  He was also the head writer on several other shows, including Happy Days and The Odd Couple.  I had the pleasure of interviewing him at the 2013 Motor City Comic Con and that can be found at On the Beat With Mark Rothman.
I wish comic cons would have more guests like Rothman.  He isn't recognizable to most, but we all owe a huge thanks to him for bringing us so much entertainment.  Rothman and his colleagues are vastly underappreciated and have so many interesting stories to tell.
My moment with Rothman was relatively brief, but fascinating.  I remember trying to narrow down my questions, because I had so many about his great career.  He worked with some legends like Henry Winkler, Ron Howard, Penny Marshall, Cindy Williams, Ted Knight and so many more.  Even now looking back, I can think of so many different questions to ask.
I want to publicly thank Rothman for his time at the MCCC and for so many great hours of entertainment of my youth.  I also want to thank the MCCC and credit them for bringing in such a unique guest.
The 2018 MCCC starts today and runs through Sunday.  I'll be "On the Beat" as usual.  Check for more info.
