BEK is Bruce Eric Kaplan!

I just discovered that New Yorker cartoonist BEK or Bruce Eric Kaplan is also a TV writer. He writes for Six Feet Under (using his name, not the abbreviation), and wrote for Seinfeld, including the episode that dealt with Elaine’s desire to get a cartoon accepted by The New Yorker. He also used to write for Cybill, which makes me think that is how he met up with Alan Ball, creator of Six Feet Under (who was a frustrated writer on that show).
