Chris Marcil

July 3, 2018

Along with his writing partner (and college roommate) Sam Johnson, Chris Marcil has written for some of the best-loved US comedies of the past 25 years, including HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER, FRASIER and BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD. They also helped develop (and wrote the pilot for) animated series DARIA which is still considered one of the best female-centric cartoon series of all time.  His humour has also appeared in The New York Times, McSweeney’s, and The New Yorker.  From years of writers’ rooms he has acquired the habit of having to end everything with a joke, which is irritating.
