Opening night of the 2012 Tucson International Jewish Film Festival!
Following sold-out events in San Francisco and Charlotte, NC, Mike Reiss, longtime writer/producer of The Simpsons, brings “The Simpsons and Other Jewish Families” to Tucson! This hilarious evening features rare clips and inside stories from one of the longest running shows in TV history. A former editor of both The Harvard Lampoon and The National Lampoon, Reiss wrote for The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, The Garry Shandling Show and Alf before he was hired in 1989 for what he thought was going to be a six-week summer job for a new animated show called The Simpsons. Four Emmys and a Peabody Award later, Reiss has written or produced more than 300 episodes of The Simpsons and is still involved in the show as a producer.
