About Jonathan

My name is Jonathan Kesselman, and I am a feature film comedy writer/director. My two feature films are: ‘The Hebrew Hammer’ and ‘Jimmy Vestvood: Amerikan Hero’ – which just premiered at the Austin Film Festival where it won the comedy vanguard award and the audience award). I am currently working on the sequel to the Hebrew Hammer as well as a film I am writing for the Irish Film Board.

I taught comedy screenwriting at Yale, and am now currently teaching screenwriting at the School of Visual Arts in NYC. I have written for pretty much every studio, and I offer a screenplay consulting service in any one is interested.
