Don't agree with that assessment. I love his comedy writing. See: most episodes he wrote for The Real Ghostbusters (Xmas Marks the Spot has one of my favorites when Peter uses a View Finder to trick Scrooge into thinking he has powers); one particular scene at the end of Midnight Nation involving the head bad guy when things don't go his way; and lots of funny stuff in Babylon 5 as well (the banquet scene in Parliament of Dreams sticks out in my head). I'd describe his humor as quirky, but inability? No.
