    • In the late 1960s Harry Shearer, Richard Beebe, David Lander and Michael formed a comedy troupe called The Credibility Gap that performed satirical daily newscasts on Pasadena Rock station KRLA-AM. In 1975, Michael, David and Harry were hired as writers for the ABC sitcom, Laverne & Shirley. Penny Marshall, who starred as Laverne, suggested that Michael and David play recurring roles based on two characters they'd created with The Credibility Gap. That is how the characters, Lenny and Squiggy, became regulars on the show.
