David Steinberg

The New York Times has called David Steinberg one of the most original comedians in years, “a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce.” Second only to Bob Hope in appearances on Carson’s The Tonight Show, he began his comedy career with Second City and influenced the careers of John Belushi, Bill Murray, John Candy and others who followed him there. Steinberg capped a prolific career as a stand up comedian with four comedy albums and two Grammy nominations. He has also won two Emmys as a writer. Famous for being funny on both sides of the camera, he has directed many critically acclaimed shows, including Friends, Newhart, Seinfeld, Mad About You, The Comeback with Lisa Kudrow for HBO, and Larry David’s Curb Your Enthusiasm for HBO. His work on Seinfeld, Mad About You and Curb Your Enthusiasm earned him several DGA and Emmy awards and nominations. Among his many film credits are Paternity with Burt Reynolds, Going Berserk with John Candy, and The Wrong Guy with Dave Foley. He is executive producer of Go Kinky, a show chronicling the Texas gubernatorial ambitions of Kinky Friedman, and is executive producer and creator of Sit Down Comedy with David Steinberg.
