Bill Oakley

I will not appear starstruck when interviewing someone from The Simpsons. I will not appear starstruck when interviewing someone from The Simpsons. I will not appear starstruck when interviewing someone from The Simpsons. I will not appear starstruck when interviewing someone from The Simpsons. I will not appear starstruck when interviewing someone from The Simpsons…

To quote Milton Berle (who, of course, stole it), “Dying is easy; comedy is hard.”

Making the creation of that comedy appear easy is, perhaps, the hardest thing of all.

On the next installment of Outlook Portland, we’ll be joined today by a man who, for the better part of his life, has written, shaped, and guided some of the era’s best humor.

Bill Oakley was Vice-President of the Harvard Lampoon, is the creator or co-creator of numerous television programs and films, and served as writer, showrunner, and Executive Producer for The Simpsons, where, among other achievements, he co-wrote the landmark two-part episode “Who Shot Mr. Burns?”

Mr. Bill Oakley pays a visit to this week’s Outlook Portland, Sunday at 6:30am, only on NW32 TV…the home of Gossip Girl, Melrose, and Rick Emerson.

NEXT WEEK: Dave Dahl, owner of Dave’s Killer Bread.

IN TWO WEEKS: Kaebel Hashitani and Chris Haberman of Sequential Art Gallery and Portland City Art, respectively.
