Hello and welcome to the website of Nate Dern. I'm a Senior Writer at Funny Or Die and the former artistic director of the UCB Theatre NY. I'm a writer / actor / director / comedian who lives in Brooklyn with my girlfriend and our cat Renly Baratheon.
A few updates:
- The New Yorker published my piece "I Like All Types Of Music, And My Sense Of Humor Is So Random" as one of their Daily Shouts.
- Simon & Schuster will be publishing my book "In Case Of Fire, Use Stairs," a collection of comedic essays and stories.
- I co-wrote the Funny Or Die video "Finnish News Team Covers U.S. Election" (5 million views).
- I'm in the Paolo Sorrentino film Youth with Harvey Keitel and Michael Caine. Here is a review in Variety.
- A short film I wrote/directed/edited based on a short story of mine called "This Is A Dream And I'm Going To Kill You" is an Official Selection of the 2016 Indie Horror Film Festival.
- My improv team What I Did For Love was named one of the best weekly improv shows in NYC by Time Out New York. You can see us every Saturday at 10pm at the UCB Theatre's East Village location.
