Biography

Max Pross is one half of a comedy writing team that has graced many of the funniest television series since the late '70s. Pross met his long-time writing partner, Tom Gammill, at Harvard, and together they went to work for producer Lorne Michaels on the sketch comedy show "Saturday Night Live". They worked with Michaels on a few other similar shows with less repute, but eventually settled into the writing team at "Seinfeld", the popular and critically lauded New York-based sitcom famous for being "a show about nothing." The other iconic TV series that benefited for many years from Pross and Gamill's brilliant funny-bones was "The Simpsons", America's favorite animated show, about the quintessential nuclear family. Pross and Gammill won an Emmy for the episode "HOMR," a hilarious vignette in which the patriarch of the family, Homer, discovers the source of his less-than-stellar intellect is actually a children's crayon that has been lodged in his cranium for years. As is typical of the sophisticated writing on "The Simpsons", the episode is not just funny but also touching, as the increase in Homer's intelligence enables him to bond with his high-brow daughter, Lisa.
