Biography

Andrew Breckman is a longtime comedy writer, mainly for television series and late night. He was born on March 3, 1955, in Philadelphia. His brother, David Breckman, is also a comedy writer. Andy Breckman started out writing for television in 1979 on the series "Hot Hero Sandwich." His writing efforts on the show garnered him a Daytime Emmy Award in 1980. From 1982 to 1984, he was a strong contributing writer for "Late Night with David Letterman." He also started writing sketches for "Saturday Night Live" in 1983 and was a team member on that show until 1996. His writing credits are not limited to the small screen, however. He wrote screenplays for "I.Q." and "Sgt. Bilko" in 1994 and 1996 respectively. His most successful screenplay came in 2001 with the film "Rat Race," which featured multiple comic actors, including the likes of Seth Green, Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Lovitz, and John Cleese. The culmination of many years of grinding away at television writing added to the satisfaction of creating his own television series in 2002 with "Monk." Breckman himself wrote and produced the sitcom. His show was so successful and well received that USA decided to green light a spinoff of the series, called "Little Monk," with Breckman on that writing team as well. Breckman is married to documentarian Beth Landau.
