Ben Schwartz started his career as a page for the Letterman Show and look at him now. Back in the day he would submit jokes and if one got on, that would mean a shiny $75. If nothing got on, and you listened very very closely, you’d hear a very strange shout come from the hidden depths of the theater. Working for Letterman prepped him so well, that when he moved to LA he landed a pilot, a movie, and a job writing for the Oscars all in his first month.
Fast forward and next thing you know, Ben is doing Parks and Recreation and House of Lies.
