Drywall Master of the Universe

The self-proclaimed title of blue-collar worker Dan Conner (John Goodman) on the sitcom ROSEANNE/ABC/1988-97.

When Dan’s wife Roseanne (Roseanne Barr) teasingly doubted her husband’s ability to get a dry-walling job, Dan kicked back his kitchen chair, flexed his arm muscles and roared “I am the Drywall Master of the Universe!” in an attempt to convince his wife and himself of his worthiness.


Born in Philadelphia, Jerome Alphonse Holst worked 30 years as a librarian. He has since retired and lives in Greensboro, North Carolina.

In addition, he penned the fantasy novel “The Adventures of Glinda Gale,” a retelling of “The Wizard of Oz" and the reference text “The Encyclopedia of Movie and TV Insults.” .
