Comedy expert Jeffrey L. Gurian, author of Make ‘Em Laugh: 35 Years of the Comic Strip, the Greatest Comedy Club of All Time, is the Host of Comedy Matters on BeTerrific!!
Gurian had two childhood dreams by the age of 12—he wanted to be a comedy writer and a dentist. He achieved both. Gurian simultaneously practiced dentistry and wrote comedy for Saturday Night Live and for comics including Rodney Dangerfield, Joan Rivers and Milton Berle. He retired from his dental practice in 1996 and taught at New York University’s College of Dentistry until 2011.
He is a member of the Friars Club and has written several books on comedy. Gurian has written and produced award winning films, mentored young comedians and is an active performer.
