Jamie Greenberg was born very early in life, after which he
dried off and attended Cornell University.

Stags, which he wrote and directed. He has created various
short films including Pillowfighter, Taxi Dancer, ColumBus, and

Mr. Greenberg’s career as a television Writer/Producer spanned
over a ninth of a century, including extensive work in children’s
TV, game shows, MTV, and comedy programs. He co-created

nominated for 2 Emmy Awards, and wrote forall 5 seasons of its
predecessor show Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?
He was a Story Producer on Michael Moore’s TV Nation.
On the other side of the karmic ledger, Mr.Greenberg co-created
and wrote MTV’s terrible hit show Lip Service, andwas Senior
Writer on such MTV specials as Wanna Be AVJ, Total Britney
Live, and many more. Yes, someone actually writes those things.
Mr.Greenberg is also a performer. With featured roles in over
50 episodes of Where In Time Is Carmen Sandiego?, he may
be the only actor ever to have essayed the roles of Simon
Bolivar and a Talking Head of Lettuce in the same season. As
an on-camera personality, he spent a year as Senior
Correspondent on Court TV’s irreverent and unwatched comedy/news program Snap Judgment.
In the 20th century he produced and hosted the Public Access cult favorite Media Shower, a show based on strangely compelling found footage. The late great Joey Ramone once called Mr.Greenberg a “chimp” in reference to this show.
He is not.
In his spare time Mr. Greenberg enjoys writing about himself in the third person.
