WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM?
Celebrated comedic actor GARRY SHANDLING stars as H1449-6/Harold Anderson, an
alien/banker who is sent to Earth to impregnate a female human to ensure his
planet's domination of the universe.
Shandling's feature film credits include key roles in the
forthcoming Town and Country with Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and
Andie MacDowell; Hurlyburly, with Sean Penn and Kevin Spacey; Love
opposite Warren Beatty and Annette Bening and Nora Ephron's Mixed Nuts.
Shandling garnered numerous Emmy Award nominations and
CableAce Awards as well as the highest critical plaudits for his long-running
HBO series "The Larry Sanders Show." A cutting-edge comedy based on
the life of a fictitious late-night talk show host, the program explored the
hilarious and heartbreaking behind-the-scenes dynamics of the production staff
and featured appearances by real-life celebrities as guests on Sanders' show.
Prior to "The Larry Sanders Show," Shandling
enjoyed a highly successful four-year run with the Fox network series,
"It's Garry Shandling's Show," which offered a weekly glimpse of his
life at home. Two highly successful Showtime specials, "Garry Shandling
Alone in Vegas" and "The Garry Shandling Show 25th Anniversary
Special," preceded the series. His regular appearances as guest host on
"The Tonight Show" in the early and mid-'80s also played an important
role in his rise in the entertainment world.
Shandling began his career as a writer for such renowned
situation comedies as "Sanford and Son" and "Welcome Back, Kotter."
Seeking to expand his comedic voice beyond television writing, he soon began to
create and perform his own material. In 1975, he made his successful stand-up
debut at The Comedy Store and soon left his lucrative writing career to
concentrate on live appearances.
