Michael Barrie was a longtime writer for the Tonight Show, starring Johnny Carson and the Late Show with David Letterman. He’s been nominated for 20 Emmy awards, boasting a proud record of 0 and 20. His screen credits, with Jim Mulholland, include Bad Boys, Oscar, and the anthology comedy Amazon Women on the Moon. He is the winner of a WGA Award. Mike knew little of his family’s origins before a bundle of fragile letters, written in Yiddish, triggered a search for the past his grandfather never talked about.

In his book – “How We Got Here: The Barrie Family in America”, Michael Barrie writes a compelling family story. His genealogical search initiated when he discovered a bundle of old letters, written in Yiddish. In an interview format, the path of discovery and the compilation of the family story will be revealed. Tips for writing your own family story and self-publishing is a feature of this program.
