Biography

Al Schwartz began working as a comedy writer in 1951 on the popular program "The Colgate Comedy Hour," and went on to write for the shows of Frank Sinatra and Milton Berle. Schwartz got his big break in 1957 when he started writing for "The Red Skelton Hour." Working on the show from 1957 to 1962, he was nominated for two Outstanding Writing Emmys, winning in 1961. In '65 Schwartz started working on the immensely popular sitcom "Gilligan's Island." He wrote several episodes in 1965, as well as the spin-off TV movies, "Rescue from Gilligan's Island," "The Castaways on Gilligan's Island," and believe it or not, "The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island." Following the success of "Gilligan's Island," Schwartz wrote for the Western comedy "Petticoat Junction" directed by Paul Henning. Schwartz's best-known work, though, is iconic family sitcom "The Brady Bunch," to which he contributed his writing talents between 1969 and 1974.
