Evan Goldberg, BA’05, was recognized in Variety magazine’s 2013 Comedy Impact Report.
Goldberg co-wrote and co-directed This Is the End, which the magazine calls “one of the strangest, funniest and most surprisingly lucrative comedies of the year.” In it, Seth Rogen (named alongside Goldberg on the list), James Franco, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson, Jay Baruchel and Jonah Hill, playing themselves, witness the end of the world.
Goldberg’s previous writing credits include 2011’s Goon and 2007’s Superbad.
The Comedy Impact Report – which also puts Goldberg in the company of Dave Chappelle, Michael J. Fox, Andy Samberg and more – appears in this week’s edition of Variety, out today.
