Biography

Comedian, sketch artist and writer Randy Pearlstein attended film school at New York University, but discovered a crucial learning experience outside of class when the first three directors he contacted offering to do free intern work agreed to his request: Woody Allen, Martin Scorsese and Mike Nichols. Throughout the 1990s, Pearlstein appeared in variety of projects, making his acting debut in the Canadian 1990 low-budget horror film "Revenge of the Radioactive Reporter". He also had bit roles in several features, including the Woody Harrelson action comedy "The Cowboy Way" and the Barbra Streisand drama "The Mirror Has Two Faces", followed by more substantial roles in the low-budget indie "Dead Man On Campus" and the quirky advertising satire "Suits". In 2002, Pearlstein teamed up with his former college roommate Eli Roth to write "Cabin Fever", a gory horror feature that inspired a cult following that led to a sequel in 2009. In keeping with his roots in stand-up and sketch comedy, Pearlstein appeared several times on long-time friend Dave Chappelle's controversial hit sketch series "Chappelle's Show" and was a regular on the short-lived series "Michael & Michael Have Issues", starring Michael Ian Black and Michael Showalter of "The State" and "Stella" fame. In 2010, Pearlstein co-starred on the animated comedy series "Ugly Americans", alongside Natasha Leggero and Matt Oberg.
