      As one of the most successful comedy screenwriting teams in Hollywood, Marc "Babaloo" Mandel, along with writing partner Lowell Ganz, penned some of the biggest hits of the 1980s and 1990s. After serving time as a joke writer for comedians like Joan Rivers, Mandel partnered with Ganz and embarked on an incredibly successful feature career that benefited from frequent collaborations with producer Brian Glazer and director Ron Howard, starting with "Night Shift" (1982). Mandel and Ganz went on to write huge hits like "Splash" (1984) and "Parenthood" (1989). Mandel and Ganz had perhaps their greatest success, both critically and commercially, with "City Slickers" (1991), and followed up with the warmhearted comedy about a forgotten piece of history, "A League of Their Own" (1992). They followed this with projects such as "Multiplicity" (1996) and "Father's Day" (1997). Following a period where they wrote uncredited drafts of several high-profile projects, Mandel and Ganz reemerged with "Robots" (2005) and "Fever Pitch" (2005), both of which displayed the comic touch that was on full display during the height of their careers.
