Daniel J Goor
Whereas most sitcom writers often serve as "hired hands," drifting from one show to the next without leaving any type of notable stamp, Daniel J. Goor managed to carve out a noteworthy career for himself as one of the comedy's world's most recognizable talents. Goor started as a writer on "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central 1996- ), while making a name for himself as a writer of numerous off-beat political sketches for the show's celebrated host Jon Stewart. Then, after a few years writing for the late-night talk shows in New York, Goor made the leap in to scripted comedy. From 2009 to 2012 Goor wrote ten episodes of the critically-acclaimed comedy "Parks and Recreation" (NBC 2009- ), while also earning a 2011 Primetime Emmy nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series. In 2013 Goor co-created the cop comedy, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Fox 2013- ), with longtime friend Mike Schur. The show received sterling reviews when it debuted in September of 2013, eventually being picked up for an entire season, thus underscoring Goor's already growing status as a comedy writer to watch.
