Alan Zweibel, an original writer for “Saturday Night Live” who has won multiple Emmy and Writers Guild of America awards for his work in television, started his comedy career selling jokes for $7 apiece to the last of the Borscht Belt stand-ups.
As one of the first writers at “SNL,” he penned classic material for Gilda Radner, John Belushi and all of the original “Not Ready for Prime Time Players.” From ”SNL,” he went on to have a hand in a series of landmark shows, including ”It’s Garry Shandling’s Show” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” In “Laugh Lines: My Life Helping Funny People Be Funnier,” Zweibel weaves together his own stories and interviews with his friends and contemporaries, touting such celebrities as Richard Lewis, Eric Idle, Bob Saget, Mike Birbiglia, Sarah Silverman, Judd Apatow, Dave Barry, Carl Reiner and more.
