Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Emmy-nominated writer, producer and actor BILLY VAN ZANDT on why comedians are born hearing a certain rhythm; his friendship with Lucille Ball and the influence she continues to have on his career; why working with Martin Lawrence reminded him of both Jerry Lewis and Bob Newhart; and why his experience working with Don Rickles on Daddy Dearest remains one of his best experiences in television.
