Richard Lewis and John DeBellis


RICHARD LEWIS: Perhaps Mel Brooks put it best when he said, "Richard Lewis may just be the Franz Kafka of modern day comedy."

Lewis has taken his lifelong therapy fodder and carved it into a commanding, compelling art form. His early career as a stand-up brought him to the top of his ranks and over time he broadened the scope of opportunities so others could share in his brilliantly warped world. The NY Post recently said; “Richard Lewis built the strongest stand-up comedy career on a blazing trail of neuroses since Woody Allen.”

Lewis has wrapped up work on the sixth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm” premiering on September 9th and is on his “Misery Loves Company Stand-Up Tour.” Lewis is also in the process of furthering along the development of his own "dark ensemble comedy,” and all the while praying that Mr. David will be inspired for a seventh season of "Curb." His prayers were answered.

JOHN DEBELLIS: John started as a stand-up comic before turning to writing for comics such as Rodney Dangerfield, and Johnny Carson (because he needed another way to express his depression.) He was a staff writer for "Saturday Night Live," "The Tonight Show," "Politically Incorrect," "D.C. Follies, etc. He recently wrote and directed "The Last Request," a feature film starring Danny Aiello, T.R.Knight, and Mario Cantone.
