George Shapiro.

You may not know him by name but you his work and you know the amazing comedy careers he’s helped create. Danny DeVito portrayed him — Shapiro was Andy Kaufman’s real-life manager — in the now classic biopic Man on the Moon. Shapiro executive produced Seinfeld, currently executive produces the NBC show Marriage Ref and remains as one of the strongest driving forces behind the comedy world.

Punchline Magazine‘s Matthew Gill was lucky enough to score some quality time with the man. In this great behind-the-scenes interview, Shapiro talks about what he looks for in comedic talent, reminisces about Kaufman and much more! Check it out.
