Barry Sobel is the comedian doing the impression of a jfk airport employee.  the bit happened in dr. katz episode #202 named "real estate."  rita rudner also appears in this episode.  i'm sure you can run your own search on mr. sobel, the only thing i'm aware of him doing is "revenge of the nerds."

I found this because I was just searching for the same thing! Argh! I saw this routine on a HBO special many years ago.  I think the comedian was one of several that night.  He was a medium-to-short, thin, white guy.  I think he had curly hair that was reddish.  He also did a rap about Star Wars, using, iirc, the word Zodiac.  "Ain't Star Wars!  Ain't Chewbacca!  Zu-Zu-Zu-Zodiac!"

It was a routine by Adam Sandler way before he was famous.  It's on a recording from the Montreal Comedy Festival in the 80's.

It was Barry Sobel from his album and show "C/D" around 1988-89. Look it up on YouTube.

Wow! I can answer "all" or "anything" about Dr. Katz. For example, do you want to know who spent the most time on Dr. Katz`s couch? I can tell you. Do you want to know how many African American`s sat with the good doctor? I can tell you. I can tell you which comedian said what to whom at what time in what episode. I can tell you about the personal life of Ben, or Laura, or Stan, or Todd. Admittedly, there may be questions of minutiae that I don`t know, but I can attempt to look up anything that you need.


I have seen every episode of Dr. Katz numerous times and have every episode on tape. I also have followed the careers of the show's creators Tom Snyder and Jonathan Katz and I also know a great deal about the stand-up comics that graced Dr. Katz's couch. To help me, I have a fairly detailed episode guide.

Like Ben, I'm the type of person that leads the contemplative life.
