About Neil Gaiman

Neil Gaiman was born in the United Kingdom and now lives in the United States near Minneapolis. As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, Ursula K. LeGuin, and G.K. Chesterton. A self-described “feral child who was raised in libraries,” Gaiman credits librarians with fostering a life-long love of reading. He is a passionate advocate for books and libraries, and a supporter and former board member of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Gaiman teaches at Bard College and is married to artist/musician Amanda Palmer, with whom he sometimes performs.

Gaiman’s bestselling contemporary fantasy novel, American Gods, took the Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards—as did his bestselling young adult story Coraline. Another children’s novel, The Graveyard Book, is the only work to win both the Newbery (U.S.) and Carnegie (U.K.) medals — awarded by librarians for the most prestigious contribution to children’s literature.

Gaiman’s groundbreaking ‘Sandman’ comics has garnered a large number of accolades, including nine Eisner Awards, and an issue of ‘Sandman’ was the first comic book to receive literary recognition by winning the World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story.

Two of Gaiman’s speeches have gone viral. One of them, ‘Make Good Art’, an inspiring commencement address from 2012, received 1.5 million views (Vimeo and YouTube), and proved so popular it was released as a book illustrated and designed by Chip Kidd. His work Neverwhere was broadcast as a BBC radio adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch and, locally, is being presented as a play by the Know Theatre. And he scripted two Doctor Who episodes; ‘The Doctor’s Wife’ and ‘Nightmare in Silver’.

Gaiman’s best-selling contemporary fantasy novel American Gods, which won Hugo, Nebula, Bram Stoker, and Locus awards, was made into an American television series for STARZ. Good Omens, a book he co-authored with Terry Pratchett, will debut as a six part series on Amazon Prime in 2018. A four-part series, Neil Gaiman’s Likely Stories, based on Gaiman’s short stories, debuted on Sky network in the U.K. and will debut on the Shudder network in the U.S. in August 2018.

Altogether, Gaiman has received four Hugos, two Nebulas, a World Fantasy Award, four Bram Stoker Awards, six Locus Awards, two British SF Awards, a British Fantasy Award, three Geffens, an International Horror Guild Award, two Mythopoeic Awards, and 15 Eisner Awards.

SF – Tribute to Ricky Gervais

Press Release:

SF Sketchfest is thrilled to pay Tribute to Ricky Gervais, who will sit down with friend and fellow comedy icon Christopher Guest for an informal and fun conversation at the Castro Theatre on Tuesday January 23, 2018 at 7:30pm. Tickets available at the link…

Creator and star of ‘The Office’ and ‘Extras’, Ricky Gervais has won three Golden Globes®, two Primetime Emmys® and seven BAFTAS. ‘The Office’ is the most successful British comedy of all time, shown in more than 90 countries with seven remakes. The NBC version is the most successful US remake of a British show in more than 30 years. Considered the most influential British comedian since Charlie Chaplin, Gervais is an award-winning stand-up comedian, with four international tours to date. His live stand up show ‘Fame’ became the fastest selling UK stand-up show in history. Gervais is also featured in The Guinness Book of World Records for having the most downloaded internet show of all time. He has written, directed, produced and starred in ‘Cemetery Junction’, ‘The Invention of Lying’, and starred in ‘Ghost Town.’ In 2010, Gervais was asked to be the first host of the Golden Globes® since 1995, for a broadcast seen by an estimated 250 million. He was named in TIME Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and awarded the Sir Peter Ustinov Comedy Award from the Banff World Television Festival. Gervais has since hosted the Golden Globes® in 2010, 2011, 2012, and was invited back for a fourth time in January 2016. In 2012, HBO aired ‘Life’s Too Short’ and the third season of ‘The Ricky Gervais Show’, and Ricky wrote, directed and starred in ‘Derek’ for Channel 4 and Netflix. 2013 was just as busy, with an international release of ‘An Idiot Abroad 3: The Short Way Round’, taking the lead role in ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ and production on series 2 of the award-winning ‘Derek’, both of which were released in 2014. On April 3, 2015 Gervais reprised his Golden Globe nominated role as Derek, in a one-hour finale special on Netflix. Most recently, Gervais starred in ‘Special Correspondents’ an original comedy film, which debuted worldwide on Netflix in 2016. The film is written and directed by Gervais, and also starred Eric Bana, America Ferrera and Vera Farmiga. Later that year, Gervais returned to his most famous creation, writing and directing David Brent: Life on the Road. Gervais returned to stand-up in 2017 with his sell-out stand-up show, Humanity, which he’s touring worldwide into 2018. Netflix have acquired the rights to Humanity and it will stream on this service in early 2018. ‘Ricky Gervais is Deadly Sirius’ launched in October 2017 on Sirius XM which sees Ricky’s return to radio. Guests on the first season of his show include Noel Gallagher, Richard Dawkins and Professor Brian Cox.
