Career Snapshot:

Beginning as a songwriter, John Meyer wrote special comedy material for Lily Tomlin, Madeline Kahn and Joan Rivers. He can even list Judy Garland as one of his interpreters (she performed his number “I’d Like to Hate Myself in the Morning” on the Tonight Show in 1968). From this base, John expanded his skills to Memoirs (Heartbreaker, 1983, Doubleday), musicals (The Betrayal of Nora Blake, Jermyn Street Theatre, London, 1998), film (Not for Publication, 1984) and TV (The Amazing Stories episode, “Gershwin’s Trunk”, 1986, produced by Steven Spielberg). The Magical Mystery of Musigny marks his first experience as Writer/Director of an animated film. The team (including animator/filmmaker Emmett Goodman) is developing a second animated short, Nurse Jayne, in which John must deal with a hostile neighbor
