Biography

Keith Truesdell is known primarily for directing concert films for the industry's top stand-up comedians--from Chris Rock and Adam Sandler to Joan Rivers and Roseanne Barr. An Emmy and CableACE Award nominee, Truesdell kicked off his directing career with "Tommy Davidson: Illin' in Philly," a fairly bare-bones presentation of the "In Living Color" comedian's stand-up act. Within a few years, Truesdell was regularly delivering award-winning concert and variety specials for HBO and Showtime, earning a reputation in the '90s as the go-to guy for capturing the mercurial talents of comedic heavyweights. His hilarious subjects included the likes of Dana Carvey, David Spade, Janeane Garofalo, Jeff Foxworthy, and Richard Jeni. Truesdell developed particularly fruitful collaborative connections with self-described D-List comic Kathy Griffin, for whom he's produced and directed several concert films on Bravo, and with Chris Rock, whose edgy TV specials "Bring the Pain" and "Bigger & Blacker" Truesdell directed. He later went on to shoot multiple episodes of the Rock-created sitcom "Everybody Hates Chris." Truesdell has also guided episodes of Bill Maher's political roundtable "Real Time with Bill Maher," as well as the ABC Family drama "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." He stepped into producing feature films with the formation of his L.A.-based production company, PPI.
