Best Comedy Writers of all time in the Film Industry

When it comes to films, one genre that is grasped and appreciated the most by the audience is comedy. That is because it covers all aspects that cinema intends to provide its audience; entertainment, recreation and a getaway from the daily routine of life. Comedy is what makes most films acceptable by everyone irrespective of their age, gender or any such discrimination. 

Let us look at the best comedy film writers of all time:

Mel Brooks

Beginning his career as a comic writer to one of the earliest varieties of Tv shows Your Show of Shows, Brooks started creating his ascending path towards stardom as one of the best successful comedy film writers of the ’70s. His most reputed films are The Producers (1967), Young Frankenstein (1974) and Spaceballs (1987). In the American film institute’s survey of the top 100 funniest films from the past ten decades (1900 – 2000), three of his movies ranked number 6, 11 and 13. The show Your Show of Shows served as an influential inspiration to many sketch comedy TV shows ever since.

Edgar Wright

This English Television and film screenwriter and director is best known for his comedic trilogy comprising of Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End. He was the maker of his short films before entering into film making debuting with A Fistful of Fingers (1995) and then directing a series Asylum (1996) which focused mainly on humour. He was also the director of a sitcom collaborating with other directors named Spaced (1999 – 2001). 

John Hughes 

The Breakfast Club (1985) is a significant comedy-drama film in many of the 90’s kids’ childhoods. Directed by John Wilden Hughes, this film acquired immense acclaim earning over 50 million dollars back then. This movie was considered to be Hughes’s most appreciated films, and even three decades later, it was chosen by the congress library to be preserved in the national film registry of the United States, calling it aesthetically significant. It was screened again after remastering throughout 430 theatres in the event of its thirtieth anniversary.
