Elliott discusses his career and memoir, The Guy Under the Sheets: The Unauthorized Autobiography -- a behind-the scenes memoir so personal, so provocative–that Chris Elliott nearly sued himself to halt publication.

Among Chris Elliott's credits are: Groundhog Day, Cabin Boy, There's Something About Mary, Eagleheart on Adult Swim, Scary Movie 2 & 4, The Dictator, The Abyss, Late Night with David Letterman, Everybody Loves Raymond and more...

Because no one will write an unauthorized biography about comedian Chris Elliott, he’s had to do it himself.   Reader, you are hereby warned that much of The Guy Under the Sheets: The Unauthorized Autobiography will be disturbing.

The most shocking revelation is that Elliott is not the absurdist comedian that Rolling Stone once called a “genius”–but that he’s a slightly dim-witted no-talent from a celebrity family who managed to convince a whole generation of disillusioned youth that he was funny.

While there are plenty of fictional anecdotes, like the torrid affair with Kathy Lee, or his first job dismembering bodies for the mob, Elliott weaves in wonderful real-life ones, too–including his start at Late Night alongside the likes of Andy Kaufman, and his work in films fromGroundhog Day to Cabin Boy.

This evening with Elliott is guaranteed to be at least somewhat funny and wholly entertaining, especially for students in film and television.

Merrill Markoe graduated from UC Berkeley with a masters degree in art, then went on to use her degree in the most pragmatic way possible by becoming a writer of comedy for assorted venues, including television, movies and magazines. Along the way she won five Emmys for Late Night with David Letterman and a Writer's Guild Award for HBO's Not Necessarily the News. These days she is STILL writing books and making short films.
