Larry Doyle first novel, “I Love You, Beth Cooper” won the 2008 Thurber Award for Humor Writing. He wrote the screenplay for the subsequent film, released in 2009. His second novel, “Go, Mutants!” came out in 2010. He is adapting that book for Imagine Entertainment and Universal.
Doyle was a writer and producer of “The Simpsons” for four years; he also wrote for “Beavis and Butt-Head” and will not apologize for it. He wrote the films “Duplex,” and “Looney Tunes: Back in Action,” and has sold numerous screenplays and pilots, some of them quite good.
Doyle is a frequent contributor to the The New Yorker. “Deliriously Happy,” a collection of humor pieces from that magazine, as well as from Esquire, the National Lampoon and elsewhere, has just been published.
In previous lives, Doyle was an editor at New York and Spy magazines, ran a comic book company, wrote the syndicated comic strip “Pogo,” and was a medical-science reporter.
He does not keep live monkeys in his house, which would be illegal.
