Review: 'Better Things' & 'One Mississippi' show power of autobiographical comedy

7 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Comedy doesn't have to be autobiographical, but it can help a lot. Whether in sitcom plots or stand-up routines, specificity makes everything better, and it's hard to get more specific than drawing details the writers know by heart because they've lived them. Many of TV's greatest comedies were heavily based on the experiences of their creators and/or stars, from The Dick Van Dyke Show — where Carl Reiner would famously begin each Monday by asking his writers to recount what they did with their spouses and kids over the weekend — to Roseanne, Seinfeld (and, thus, Curb Your Enthusiasm), Everybody Loves Raymond, and recent shows like black-ish. Peak TV also seems to have brought with it Peak Autobiographical Dramedy, with comedians playing a version of themselves that's thinly-disguised at best, having adventures that feel therapeutic as much as comic. Even with Louie — the creative high point, to date, of this particular »

Interview: Rob Reiner on his favorite films, and why he changed the ending of When Harry Met Sally…

2 September 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

You’d be hard-pressed to find a current director who has helmed as many beloved movies as Rob Reiner. He was born into show business; his dad Carl Reiner was an early creator on The Dick Van Dyke Show and a comedy partner of Mel Brooks. The younger Reiner eagerly dove into the family business, with improv troupes and stage directing alongside TV appearances as members of the counterculture movement (read: hippie) on shows like Gomer Pyle. His big break came when he was cast as the rebellious son-in-law on the classic sitcom All In The Family, where he frequently fought onscreen with his father-in-law Archie Bunker, played by Carroll O’Connor.

After that show ended, Reiner turned to directing, kicking off with the now-classic improv effort This Is Spinal Tap, which essentially started the mockumentary movement continued and extended by Tap member Christopher Guest. Reiner followed with 1985’s ...

Garry Marshall, Director/Producer/Actor, Dead At Age 81; "Happy Days" And "Pretty Woman" Among His Hits

20 July 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Garry Marshall, the man who helped create iconic sitcoms such as "Happy Days", "Laverne & Shirley" and "Mork & Mindy", has died at age 81. Greatly beloved in the entertainment industry, Marshall helped kick many actors' careers into overdrive including Julia Roberts, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler and Robin Williams.  He also adapted Neil Simon's stage and screen hit "The Odd Couple" into a long-running TV series starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. He grew up in a modest home in the Bronx and never lost his almost stereotypical "New Yawk" accent. Marshall became a writer on some classic TV series of the 1960s including "The Dick Van Dyke Show", The Lucy Show" and "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson". He even became a prolific actor graduating from an un-billed role in "Goldfinger" to some juicy character parts in major films. Marshall would go on to direct features himself including »

Garry Marshall (1934-2016)

20 July 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

One of Hollywood's key figures passed away yesterday at the age of 81. His work in the past five years has consisted of a string of critically lambasted all star romcoms (Valentines Day, New Year's Eve, Mothers Day) and the day before he died one of the many actor he made famous (Scott Baio of Happy DaysJoanie Loves Chachi fame) embarrassed himself on national television at the Rnc. To put it bluntly, the last few years have not been kind but this is not the legacy that the beloved Garry Marshall deserves. We need to look a little further back. While he was never exactly a critic's darling - let's not rewrite history -- his work often resonated wildly with the public on screens both small and large. And that, my friends, is no small thing with or without a shelf of showbiz trophies.

He was a mammoth figure in comedy television, »

Garry Marshall, Happy Days Creator, TV Writer, Producer and Director, Dies at 81

19 July 2016 9:57 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

If you are a fan of entertainment, the odds are, you're a fan of Garry Marshall.

The prolific writer, director and producer of television and movies died today at the age of 81 due from complications of pneumonia after a stroke.

Marshall's long line of televisions credits includes The Dick Van Dyke Show, Happy Days, and The Odd Couple among others.

Marshall's first television credit was for three episodes of The Jack Parr Tonight Show in 1960. Over the next 50 plus years, his credits looks like a virtual history of the American comedy.

Marshall not only created Happy Days, but the three spinoffs that came afterward, including Laverne & Shirley (starring his younger sister, Penny Marshall), Mork & Mindy (starring the late Robin Williams and Joanie & Chachi.

At one time, Marshall was writing three of the top four programs of the 1978-79 television season.

Appreciating Garry Marshall, a Giant Whose Work Revealed His Big Heart

19 July 2016 9:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s unclear what we’ve done to make the universe angry, but Death keeps taking legends from us: David Bowie, Prince, and now Garry Marshall. Marshall is gone at age 81.

Marshall did far more than create hit shows and cast actors who went on to be enormously influential in their own rights. He also appeared in a host of movies and films, always giving off the vibe of your cool, understanding, funny uncle, a guy who is game for just about anything and always encouraging. Who can say they worked on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” one of the foundational shows of television, and also voiced a character on “BoJack Horseman” and made appearances on “Louie”? It’s not just that Marshall wanted to stay relevant. He understood that those shows boast the same kind of finely honed humanism that was at the core of his best work.
