Biography

Acclaimed director Bryan Gordon may be best-known for helming two Emmy-nominated episodes of Larry David's HBO comedy series "Curb Your Enthusiasm," but Gordon started out as an actor. In 1975, he made his TV debut with a one-off on the crime drama "The Edge of Night." However, while he landed a string of small parts on television over the next few years, it was as a comedy writer that his career took off. Gordon contributed to the sketch comedy series "Laugh-In" and "Fridays" before penning the screenplay for "Pie in the Sky," a romantic comedy he helmed after establishing his directing prowess with the ironically titled, John Hughes-written romantic comedy "Career Opportunities." Despite its charm the film made little impact, and Gordon invested in TV comedy, where he went on to build a reputation for his daring sense of humor. Gordon directed episodes of a number of risky--and ultimately short-lived--sitcoms in the late 1990s/early 2000s, developing a reputation for his mercilessly smart sense of humor. In 2003 his risk-taking paid off when he won an award from the Directors Guild of America for his work on "Curb Your Enthusiasm." Aside from the two Emmy nods previously mentioned, Gordon also earned two more DGA nominations during the series run. Gordon continues to favor subversive and smart sitcoms, helming such adventurous series as "Party Down," an incisive satire of Hollywood's culture that centered on the staff catering its garish affairs, and Rob Corddry's medical drama parody, "Children's Hospital."
