Soren and Katie Goodman are "Co-Authors"?

You know in Point Break when Patrick Swayze says, "This is about us against the system. The system that kills the human spirit"? It's just exactly like that. They’re a writing team.

From Broad Comedy’s sketches to Katie’s songs and solo show to their acclaimed children’s book, Soren and Katie co-author everything.

But Soren’s a guy. They even co-wrote that song where Katie sings about her hymen?

Yep. In fact, Soren wrote that line.

Do they co-do other things?

Many. Some resulting in creations like "Sh*t Park Slope Parents Say," others resulting in creations like their 14-year old son.

It’s like Patrick Swayze says in Ghost, "It's amazing, Molly. The love inside, you take it with you."

Is it true Soren has a second-degree black-belt in taekwondo and is an ordained Zen Buddhist?


Does that mean he could kick my ass?

Yes, but he wouldn’t because he’s so frickin’ peaceful. It’s like Patrick Swayze says in Road House, "Nobody ever wins a fight."

What’s next for these two?

There’s no telling. They're unpredictable. The sky’s the limit. It’s like Patrick Swayze says in Dirty Dancing, "Nobody puts Baby in the corner."

Wait, I thought that was the woman character that said that? The previous dance partner?

No. Totally Patrick Swayze. You’re thinking , "Baby? Is that your name? ...Baby?"

You remember-- Patrick Swayze walks over to the parents' table...?

Oh, that's right. He holds out his hand to her... Of course, of course.
