Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist

Professional Therapist Dr. Jonathan Katz is a divorced father with 'custody' of his 23-year-old son Ben, who dreams of wealth and freedom but is too lazy to find a real job. Dr. Katz's receptionist is the acerbic Laura. He spends his free time in the bar "Jacky's 33" with his friends Stan and Julie, the bartender.

    How much the show's celebrity "patients" might draw from their own real issues, if any, was something of a behind-the-scenes running gag. Rodney Dangerfield gave probably the most personal and clinically relevant spiel of all. His humorous description of feeling "heaviness" on waking in the morning matches a symptom of melancholic depression, a variety of major depressive disorder which Rodney had long struggled with in real life.
