Irish writer up for second LA Comedy Award
While not necessarily a big name over here, Conor Ryan is making waves stateside in the comedy writing circuit. Having won Best Pilot Script Award in 2011 with a script entitled 'Another Giant Leap,' this is the second year in a row he's been nominated by the Los Angeles Comedy Festival, and was a finalist in both the New York Television Festival FOX Comedy Pilot Script Contest and the Disney Writers Fellowship also. So you know, no biggie.
Nominated for his script The Brew House, which is the story of a bunch of passionate amateurs trying to run a craft brewery in San Diego who "know a lot about beer but nothing about business", Ryan is down to the final three for the award. Having grown up in Limerick and studied business at UL and UCD, Conor then went onto work for Guinness as a brand manager before attending the MFA screenwriting program in USC, i.e. the place that produced George Lucas and Ron Howard. Which he's one of those over-talented people that make the rest of us feel incredibly lazy, but all the same, go on ya boyo, fingers crossed for Conor before the awards this Sunday.
