Sean Cunningham has written about topics ranging from his father-in-law’s experiences as a political prisoner to the feud that ensued when two porn companies both decided to parody MTV’s Jersey Shore for publications including CNN.com, Made Man, Men’s Journal, Esquire.com and Reverse Shot. He has served as an editor for publications including Maxim, the ASME- and Webby-winning LIFE.com, The Knot and Maxim for Kids (yes, this was briefly a thing). Favorite interview subjects include an NBA Hall of Famer, a member of the Wu-Tang Clan and the creator of Beavis and Butt-Head. He dabbles in advertising, where a lifetime of obsessive Simpsons-watching paid off when he worked on the Every.Simpsons.Ever campaign. His theatrical endeavors include the Drama Desk-nominated musical God Hates the Irish, described by the Irish Echo as “possibly the most foul-mouthed play ever staged Off-Broadway.” His screenplay work has taken him to Argentina and Luxembourg. He is a graduate of Princeton University and Yale School of Drama, where he won the ASCAP Cole Porter Prize.
