COMEDY WRITER/FILMMAKER AND MONA LISA THEFT EXPERT AVAILABLE NOW FOR SPEAKING ENGAGEMENTS
How did the theft of the Mona Lisa in 1911 from the Louvre in Paris help a modern day advertising copywriter from Philadelphia become the headwriter of The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in Hollywood?
And then how did this late-night comedy writer become a respected expert in the Mona Lisa’s theft and tell the story of the crime in “the world’s most expensive and elaborate home movie” which has been shown on television, in theaters and in film festivals around the world (even China and Iran!)
Writer/director Joe Medeiros takes us on a funny and fascinating tour of his career path which he says was less like a rocket’s flight path and more like “the maze in The Shining.” His talk is for anyone who has a creative dream and is afraid or unsure how to pursue it.
