Fountain, United States

I was a Police Officer for 20 years as well as an Officer in the Air Force Reserves. On November 27th, 2017, my wife was diagnosed with appendix cancer and had to endure a 16-hour surgery to save her life. On November 28th, 2018, almost exactly a year after my wife’s diagnosis, my daughter was diagnosed with AML leukemia and needed a bone marrow transplant to save her life. In order to get through chemo, surgeries and a bone marrow transplant we laughed a lot. After going into remission, they convinced me to do an open mic and despite my initial appreciation, I loved it. I’ve been doing standup comedy ever since.

My true passion is writing comedy. I started writing in high school and continued through college. Truth be told I supported myself through college by writing research papers for a small donation to my “don’t let Dorell starve” foundation.  I wrote an unpublished novel and several short stories. Along with my wife and daughter I have two adult sons. We are an entertaining bunch who have been through a lot but have kept our sense of humor.  

I wrote a tv comedy pilot called “All In”. It’s based on my family life and our friends. I entered the script in the Los Angeles International Screenwriting Awards and made it to the quarterfinals.  You can learn more about me at www.dorellgreen.com.
