PETER SEGAL

Date of Birth: 1962

While Segal was in USC School of Cinema-Television, he got to work on several HBO comedy specials such as Tom Arnold's The Naked Truth I, II and III, which Segal also produced and wrote. For his efforts he won a cable ACE Award for Best Director in a Comedy Special.

He then started to work on Tom Arnold's own sitcom - The Jackie Thomas Show. Although the show was scheduled right after Roseanne which, at the time, was the number one show, it failed to pull up its ratings and was soon canned by producers.

Sticking to the comedy genre, Segal turned to feature films, making his debut with Naked Gun 33 1/3: The Final Insult (1994) followed closely by Tommy Boy (1995) and My Fellow Americans (1996). More recently he directed Adam Sandler and Jack Nicholson in the hit comedy Anger Management(2003) and Sandler and Drew Barrymore in 50 First Dates (2004).

Segal also won the National Association of Broadcasters' Service to Children Award in '90 and '91, as well as eight local Los Angeles Emmys.
