Merrill Markoe is an Emmy winning comedy writer, author, TV personality.

After auditing scriptwriting classes and doing research for the head writer of Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman, Markoe was hired as writer for the 1977 revival of Laugh-In, joining a team that included Robin Williams. In 1978, she was part of the cast of Mary Tyler Moore's first attempt at a variety show, the eponymous Mary, along with future boyfriend David Letterman. In 1980, Markoe was the original head writer for The David Letterman Show, a short-lived live NBC morning show whose writing team was recognized with a Daytime Emmy Award.

Markoe shared in three Primetime Emmy Awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series for her work on Late Night with David Letterman.[4][5] She engineered most of the original concepts and architecture for the ground-breaking late-night talk show and created the segment "Stupid Pet Tricks" as well as "Stupid Human Tricks" and "Viewer Mail." Many of the ideas behind the remote segments outside the studio came from Markoe, who also won a Writer's Guild award for her writing/performing work on HBO's Not Necessarily the News.

She has also written for television shows such as Newhart, Sex and the City, and Moonlighting. She appeared on-camera as a lifestyle reporter at KCOP-TV in Los Angeles, then for Michael Moore's NBC show TV Nation, and worked on other magazine shows such as Lifetime Magazine. In the early 1990s she wrote and directed a number of HBO and Cinemax comedy specials. She appeared in two episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast from 1997–1998 as the unwilling subject of the eponymous late night talk show host's affections.

In 2005, Markoe was a regular panelist on Animal Planet's Who Gets the Dog? She has had a number of columns and written for many periodicals including Rolling Stone, Time, New York Woman, New Woman, US News and World Report, US, People, Esquire, The Huffington Post, Glamour, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, Real Simple, etc. She appears in episode 2 of Friends as irritable museum curator Marsha and can be seen in the movie EDtv as a panelist, as well as in the cast of The Aristocrats.

Alex Edelman
Alex Edelman has a appeared on Conan. His show Millennial won a Foster’s Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, revealed Edelman to the international stand-up community as one of its brightest young talents, and subsequently enjoyed nice runs and performances in London, Australia, New York, Los Angeles, and Sweden (!).

Edelman’s 2015 follow-up show, Everything Handed to You, has garnered even more unanimous acclaim. It sold out its entire run at this year’s Fringe and earned a bushel full of great reviews – it was the second best reviewed comedy show at the entire Festival – and its first work-in-progress performance, at the Leicester Comedy Festival, garnered Edelman a nomination for Best New Show.

Both of Edelman’s hours have examined his position amongst his peer group and he has written intelligently about Millennials in The Guardian, The Atlantic, among other places.



Also, some other credits if you need them: He’s been opening for Simon Amstell a bunch this past year, which was really fun even though Simon is vegan. He’s also opened for Patton Oswalt, and toured with Eddie Izzard in Berlin and Moscow (!). He was a New Face of Comedy at Just For Laugh’s Festival in Montreal – which is like a big deal to comedy people and apparently two of your cousins – and, TV-wise, he’s done a surprising amount of Australian stuff, been on Comedy Central’s Comics To Watch and The John Bishop Show recently. He wore a suit on the latter and at the time his girlfriend said he looked handsome in his suit.

Although he has no personal life to speak of, he enjoys Italian food and David Foster Wallace.
