I can call you Betty?

Iâ€™m hard pressed to think of any time anyone called *-Man â€œManuel,â€ except for during the very clever Tick live-action show about a decade back. Iâ€™m getting old!
Tangentially, Iâ€™ve caught up to the end of season 3 of the TV show â€œSupernatural,â€ and as the show wears on you can really see Ben Edlundâ€™s influence in some of the ways they tweak the nose of tropes normally associated with X-Files stuff. Edlundâ€™s Supernatural episodes are like the old Darin Morgan X-Files eps â€” always pretty funny but with weirdly resonant human cores to them. Is there something about comedy writing that makes people good â€œhumanâ€ writers as well?
