David Steinberg Comedian/Director

As a comedian, David Steinberg, whom The New York Times has called "a cross between Woody Allen and Lenny Bruce" and "a comic institution all by himself...," is second only to Bob Hope in Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show guest appearances. 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. In the '70s, David capped a prolific career as a stand up comedian with four comedy albums, two Grammy nominations, and a successful nightclub act at the Bitter End in New York that catapulted him into television, both as a comedian and a writer. As a director, David Steinberg has executive produced and directed many episodes of Designing Women, Friends, Newhart, Seinfeld, Mad About You and most recently the hit series Curb Your Enthusiasm for HBO. His work on Seinfeld, Mad About You and Curb Your Enthusiasm has earned him several DGA and Emmy Awards and nominations. Currently, Steinberg has teamed with Steve Carell as Executive Producer and star of Inside Comedy, a comedy documentary series on Showtime, going into its second season in January, 2013. Steinberg interviews some of the biggest names in comedy, from Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Martin Short and Sarah Silverman to Don Rickles, Mel Brooks and many more. He is also in his ninth season as a director on Curb Your Enthusiasm.
