...stand-up comedian in New York City, sharing the bill with such comedy luminaries as Jerry Seinfeld and Paul Reiser (but he’s not bitter). Shortly after heading west to Los Angeles, he landed a job as a staff writer for the ABC-TV late-night comedy/variety series "Fridays," which featured Michael Richards and Larry David (still not bitter). From there, it was on to the prime-time "No Soap, Radio," an ABC-TV sitcom/sketch show starring Steve Guttenberg.
...on a SHOWTIME special in Canada, Fred found himself working on the granddaddy of them all, "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson." One of his final Hollywood projects was a comedy pilot starring Phyllis Diller and Alan Hale (of “Gilligan’s Island” fame), which he co-created and co-wrote.
...to leave show business (a little bitter), Fred moved to San Francisco, where he made the transition to advertising copywriter, corporate video scriptwriter, crafter of web content, and blog post scribe. He’s also written and performed two solo shows. One was called “How to Make Your Bitterness Work for You.” (Hey, you write about what you know.)
...he’s in the process of writing a feature-length mockumentary, entitled, “Marv Tollman: Look Back In Failure,” which he hopes to star in and co-produce. That is, if he can raise enough money on his InidieGoGo campaign. If not, he’ll be very, well, you know.
