About Marty

Marty Beckerman is a journalist, screenwriter, 5’6″ Jewish aspiring fitness model, and #1 Amazon.com bestselling humorist (MTV Books, St. Martin’s Press) who wrote his first ridiculous book at age 16 and is equally mature today.

A former editor at Esquire and MTV News, Marty has contributed to the New York Times, Wired, the AtlanticPlayboy, CBS Interactive, HuffPostMaxim, the Daily Beast, Mental Floss, and many other publications in his dying industry. He has appeared on MSNBC and Fox News Channel, both of which should probably be illegal. In 2003 Hunter S. Thompson called him a “morbid little bastard,” which Marty considers the greatest compliment of his life.

He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their cat and Netflix. He also lives in the ’90s.
