MAD Writer Wins Emmy, Slide in TV Standards Continues

MAD Writer Wins Emmy, Slide in TV Standards Continues

By DCE Editorial Monday, September 19th, 2011
Tim Carvell is a very funny fellow. Not only does he write MAD’s ongoing feature, Planet Tad, (soon to be a major book from Harper Collins) but he also has a day job as head writer for The Daily Show. Last night at the 2011 Prime Time Emmy Awards our boy Tim was on full display accepting the Emmy for Best Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Series. (That’s Tim holding the Emmy and waving.) We here at MAD are extremely happy for Tim and his success — just so long as he doesn’t demand his own dressing room in the MAD offices or insist that Tad become a 10 page feature now that he’s gone all Hollywood!
