Alan Zweibel

TV Comedy Writer & Playwright

An original "Saturday Night Live" writer, Alan Zweibel has won five Emmy Awards for his work in television, which also includes "It’s Garry Shandling’s Show," "The Late Show with David Letterman," and "Curb Your Enthusiasm". Alan’s latest book, a cultural memoir titled Laugh Lines ‑ My Life Helping Funny People Be Funnier, was recently published and a movie he co‑wrote with Billy Crystal titled Here Today that stars Crystal and Tiffany Haddish will be released later this year. 

Moderated by


Dave Barry

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Humorist

Dave Barry has been a professional humorist ever since he discovered that professional humor was a lot easier than working. For many years, he wrote a newspaper column that appeared in more than 500 newspapers and generated thousands of letters from readers who thought he should be fired. Despite this, Barry won the Pulitzer Prize for commentary, although he misplaced it for several years, which is why his wife now keeps it in a secure location that he does not know about. One of Barry's columns was largely responsible for the movement to observe International Talk Like a Pirate Day every year on September 19. This is probably his most enduring achievement.
