Steve Heisler writes about comedy, games and television for The A.V. Club, Vulture, and Variety. He’s a producer of the Just For Laughs comedy fest and cocreator of Brooklyn's finest (only) comedy/karaoke show, The Jukebox. In seventh grade, a kid sold him a video game, then made fun of him for playing video games. Steve’s still puzzled about that one.
