Mini Bio (1)

Fred began work as a stand-up comedian in the early days of the "comic boom" in Los Angeles, and after more than 100 TV appearances and a two year stint co-hosting the popular Comedy Central show "Comics Only" with Paul Provenza, Fred began submitting jokes to Johnny Carson, Joan Rivers, and many others, propelling him from performing into writing. After a series of TV writing assignments, Fred's big break came when he was asked to be a staff writer for SNL in the 90s. His success there spring boarded into a series of plum movie writing jobs, including his work on the movies Tommy Boy and Black Sheep, starring fellow SNL alums Chris Farley and David Spade. After SNL re-structured their staff in the late 90's, Fred was asked to come back as head-writer and to perform as a Feature Player. Since then, Fred has been the key writer or secondary writer on 4 #1-at-the-box-office movies, and has written and/or directed many more, including The House Bunny, starring Anna Faris and Emma Stone, and Grown Ups, which he co-wrote with Adam Sandler, winning a People's Choice award for Best Comedy. Fred splits his time between Carmel and Santa Fe.
