Content Marketing Institute Announces Keynote for Annual Content Technology Event

NEW YORK, Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — He’s the funny man behind some of television’s most beloved and celebrated comedies. That’s why Content Marketing Institute is excited to welcome award-winning writer and author, Alan Zweibel to the keynote stage at the 2020 ContentTECH Summit. The second annual ContentTECH Summit returns to San Diego, California April 20-22.

Zweibel has won multiple Emmy and Writers Guild awards for his work in television. He got his start in TV as one of the original writers on Saturday Night Live, bringing to life some of our favorite characters, Roseanne Rosannadanna and Emily Litella, both portrayed by Gilda Radner, and sketches, including Samurai with John Belushi. He’s also known for his work on It’s Garry Shandling’s Show  (which he co-created and produced), The Late Show With David Letterman and Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Beyond television, Zweibel is known for his theatrical contributions including his collaboration with Billy Crystal on the Tony Award-winning play 700 Sundays, Martin Short’s Broadway hit Fame Becomes Me, and six off-Broadway plays including Bunny Bunny – Gilda Radner: A Sort of Romantic Comedy, which he adapted from his best-selling book. Speaking of books, Zweibel has written 11, including the 2006 Thurber Prize-winning novel The Other Shulman, and the popular children’s book Our Tree Named Steve. He’s also a screenwriter. Most recently, a movie he co-wrote with Billy Crystal called “Here Today” that stars Crystal and Tiffany Haddish just completed production and will be in theaters next fall.

“Alan Zweibel’s career success has transcended television to film, theater, and literature,” explains Stephanie Stahl, general manager, Content Marketing Institute. “He’s had an incredible career not just in writing for all types of media, but he also understands the business and production side of the industry. We’re excited to welcome him to the ContentTECH Summit stage to not only share his refreshing perspective on storytelling and creativity, but also on how we can truly use content to connect with our audiences in this marketing-driven world.”
