The Simpsons Writer Bill Oakley On His Crowning Achievement and Reviewing Fast Food on Instagram

Bill Oakley's a veteran comedy writer for TV. He's worked on Portlandia, Futurama, The Cleveland Show and Disenchantment.

He wrote for The Simpsons between 1992 and 1998 - the golden years.

Together with his partner Josh Weinstein, Bill made some stone cold Simpsons classics:

Remember when Malibu Stacey got a new hat? The time The Simpsons went to Australia? Or how about the time baby Maggie shot Mr. Burns?

All those episodes were co-written by our Bill.

In this episode, Bill tells Jesse about what he feels is his crowning achievement on The Simpsons and writing reviews for fast food on Instagram.

You can see Bill's latest work on the Netflix show Disenchantment. He's a writer and executive producer for the series.
