He began his comedy career with Second City and influenced the careers of John Belushi, Bill Murray, John Candy and others who followed him there. In the ‘70s, David capped a prolific career as a stand-up comedian with four comedy albums, two Grammy nominations, and a successful nightclub act at the Bitter End in New York that catapulted him into television, both as a comedian and a writer. As a director, David Steinberg has executive produced and directed many episodes of Designing Women, Friends, Newhart, Seinfeld, Mad About You and most recently the hit series Curb Your Enthusiasm for HBO.
