I’ve seen scenes on YouTube. He’s, well... crazy!
Joe Davola was the Producer of Remote Control and he was freaking nuts. he was sexually harrassing me. So when the whole thing went down with Anita Hill, I knew she was lying. When you’re truly being sexually harrassed in the workplace, you don’t want to be anywhere near that person. He became the head of comedy development at one of the networks and that’s how Seinfeld met him. That character was based on him. Crazy Joe Davola.
At the time, I was dating a guy and I would complain about Davola to him. He finally said, what do you want me to do, beat him up? I knew I had to take care of it. I was probably about 28 years old. The last time he harrassed me I whipped around and I said, “I don’t appreciate these comments you continually say to me and I want you to stop...you will stop.”
That was that, he never bothered me again...but then again...I wasn’t invited back for the next season. No big loss.
