Q&A – Irwin Koplan (Small Town Security)


Irwin “The Captain” Koplan is Joan’s husband and the co-owner of JJK Security and Investigations on AMC’s Small Town Security. In this interview , he talks about how he first met Joan and who swears the most in the office. (It’s not who you think.)

Q: What was your initial reaction when you learned that JJK was going to be the subject of a TV show?

A: I had my serious doubts, because you don’t see the forest through the trees. I knew we were different. We’re a rather diverse group — to the point of being dysfunctional, I would say. People would want to come and just hang around the office, because they’d be entertained for an hour or two. After hearing people’s comments so many times about how funny we were, we thought maybe we had something there that might be interesting to an audience. Actually, it was Joan’s idea. We did it all for Joan. I think everybody had their doubts, but everybody was encouraged. I don’t think we ever thought it would progress this far.

Q: How did you and Joan meet?

A: We met just by pure chance. I was living in New York City. I was with a company selling copiers. My co-worker friends and I went out after work, and there she was in this little pizza joint, behind the counter. I don’t think she was officially an employee. She just knew the owner. I guess, I was kind of immediately attracted to her. She served me a drink and it was the worst soda I ever put in my mouth! That gave me an opportunity to talk to her. She came over to the table and after talking for a while, I asked her out. That’s the way it went.

Q: How did the two of you come to start JJK Security and Investigations?
