Creator: Bobcat Goldthwait

Bobcat Goldthwait is a comedian and director who rose to fame in the The Eighties for two things: his role of Zed in the Police Academy series and for his stand-up act, most famous for acting insane.

The first film he directed was Shakes the Clown in 1992 which was not a box-office success, but developed a cult following. His next notable return to directing was over a decade later when he directed episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live! During a break from that show, he directed his next feature film Sleeping Dogs Lie, which was about an . . . interesting piece of subject matter to say the least. His next film, arguably his best-received, was World's Greatest Dad starring Robin Williams. His latest film, God Bless America, was released in 2012, although Willow Creek will be released sometime soon.

He acts much calmer in person now, and still does stand-up occasionally. He has Instagram and now Twitter.
