Mark Warren began directing episodes of the groundbreaking Emmy Award-winning sketch comedy series "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In" in 1969. He earned an Emmy for his directing efforts and has since gone on to direct episodes of some of America's most popular television sitcoms. Warren quickly followed up his early success by directing two episodes of the TV dance series "Soul Train" in 1971 before helming his first full-length feature in 1972: "Come Back, Charleston Blue". After directing the made-for-TV movie "Cotton Club '75", Warren began work on the classic sitcom "Sanford and Son" in the mid-70s. He directed episodes of the show from 1973 to 1976 while also directing "Get Christie Love!" Warren continued his prolific run as TV director in the mid-to-late-70s by creatively helming episodes of such hit series as "Baby, I'm Back" and "What's Happening!!". He returned to motion pictures in the early 1980s with offerings like "Heartbreak High" and "Tulips" before transitioning back to sitcoms by directing two episodes of the Golden Globe-nominated series "Benson" in 1983 and 1984. His talent for directing with laser-like comedic timing came full circle in 1986 when he managed to film the television documentary entitled "Big City Comedy", which included such comic heavyweights as Billy Crystal, John Candy, and Fred Willard.
