    in Entertainment

    Wednesday, March 4, 3 pm ET the man with the world’s second-highest IQ and the highest IQ in America, television writer Rick Rosner joins Halli at her table when he visits The Halli Casser-Jayne Show.


    In 2012, The Huffington Post ranked Rosner, along with brainiacs like theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and chess Grandmaster Garry Kasparov, as one of the ten smartest people on the planet. According to the Giga Society, he has an 198 IQ which makes it all the more remarkable that, after graduating high school, Rosner forged documents, fabricated records, created disguises, and lied to officials so he could to return to high school over and again. From his teens through most of his 20s, Rosner spent time in five different high schools from Hollywood to Harlem. 


    All of that education and work as a stripper, a bouncer, a roller-skating waiter and a nude model somehow prepared him for his adult career as a TV writer. Rick’s credits include shows such as Remote Control, Crank Yankers, The Man Show, The Emmy Awards, The Grammy Awards and Jimmy Kimmel Live! All in all, Rosner has contributed more than 2,500 hours of broadcast television, earning himself 7 Writer’s Guild Awards and Emmy nominations.
