Morley Shulman | Background
Born on the barren plains of Toronto, Canada, I developed my sense of humour early on in life by continuously watching my beloved hockey team, the Toronto Maple Leafs. I attended the Toronto School of Drama from the ages of 7-11 and would constantly annoy my classmates and teachers by doing celebrity impersonations (thank you Rich Little!).
During my high school years, I decided to appear as a stand-up comedian at renowned comedy club Yuk Yuks instead of dating or getting trashed, like most normal teens. After turning down an insultingly bad offer to turn pro, I then focused on my university studies where I graduated with the highest temperature in my class and received an Honours B.A. in Mass Communications and Political Science.
I later focused my creative efforts on writing plays and movies. Many of my plays appear in “A Love Letter to Stephanie- An Anthology of One-Act Plays”.
When I’m not writing, I like to read, play mindless games, listen to classic rock (i.e. The Beatles, Badfinger, Klaatu, Paul McCartney and Wings), go shopping with my wife and hang out with my in-laws (yes, you read that right!).
Some of my comedic influences include The Three Stooges, Mel Brooks and Woody Allen, to name but a few.
