Laughter in the Court


Walsh’s humor, wit, aplomb, and common sense could eventually seem like pinpricks against widespread cluelessness.
One day in the 00s, as a struggling Hollywood screenwriter like Fitzgerald’s Pat Hobby, I decided to earn some money playing a courtroom spectator on Judge Judy, a show I’d never watched.
