DARIEN, Conn. -- Happy Birthday To Darien’s Tom Gammill!

Gammill, who has owned a home in Darien, turns 59 on Thursday. The comedy writer was born May 19, 1957, in Darien.

In 1981, he co-wrote Steve Martin's fourth NBC special "Steve Martin's Best Show Ever" with notable comedy writers such as Eric Idle, Dan Aykroyd, and Lorne Michaels.

Gammill spent the next few years as part of the original writing staff of "Late Night With David Letterman," and also contributed short films for the show.

In 1984, he worked on the writing staff of another Lorne Michaels production, "The New Show," a comedy sketch show with guests including Steve Martin and John Candy, which was similar to "Saturday Night Live."

In 1986, he joined the writing staff on "It's Garry Shandling's Show," and in 1989 he wrote an episode for "The Wonder Years" called "Math Class" with Max Pross. He was listed as contributor to the short-lived zine Army Man in 1989.

He joined the "Seinfeld" writing team during the show's fifth season (1993-94) and stayed until the show's penultimate eighth season (1996-97).

He also worked as producers on "The Simpsons" and "Futurama."

He won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program with Max Pross in 2001 for the episode "HOMR."
