About Jeff Schimmel
Jeff Schimmel became a writer purely by accident, beginning his 25 year career by selling an idea for a Cold War spy thriller to a Hollywood production company while still in law school. After earning his doctorate degree, Jeff wrote two feature films with Rodney Dangerfield, one of which became the full-length Warner Brothers animated movie, Rover Dangerfield. This led to his first TV writing job on the top ten ABC sitcom, Full House.
After writing and producing a series of short films called The Schimmel Papers for Fox TV’s The Sunday Comics, he became a writer on the groundbreaking series In Living Color, then served as a producer on the last NBC special starring the legendary Bob Hope.
Soon after, Jeff sold a World War II film project based on a true life story to Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks Studios, wrote a comedy feature script for Oscar winner Martin Landau’s Pentagon Pictures at MGM/UA, and performed script consulting services on numerous TV and film projects. Over the years, Jeff has also written and/or produced several hour and half-hour comedy specials for HBO, Showtime, and Comedy Central, and has appeared on camera in many of them. More recently, Jeff spent three seasons as Supervising Producer and writer on Comedy Central’s Mind of Mencia and has appeared as a TV comedy guest lecturer at L.A.’s Screenwriting Expo, contributed to the NBC/Pax TV game show Balderdash, and is now involved in the development of several reality TV projects.
In addition, Jeff has worked extensively with radio industry giants Clear Channel, Radio One, and Emmis Communications as creator and Executive Producer of many top rated radio morning shows around the country. Since 1985, Jeff has written and produced for TV and film stars such as Jim Carrey, Jamie Foxx, Bob Hope, Harold Ramis, Dave Chappelle, Ellen DeGeneres, Rodney Dangerfield, George Lopez, Robin Williams, Tracy Morgan, Bob Saget, Peter Boyle, Damon Wayans, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, David Alan Grier, Bobcat Goldthwait, Tim Meadows, Gene Simmons, Ken Jeong, Keenen Wayans, David Steinberg, John Stamos, Martin Landau, Kevin Pollak, Busta Rhymes, Cheech Marin, Carlos Mencia, and Jeff’s brother, late comedian Robert Schimmel.
