Who is the Crusty Curmudgeon?
The Crusty Curmudgeon is actually a fellow by the name of Christopher Reilly and he’s really not that big of a grouch, just easily irritated with a dash of cynicism and simmered in humor. But sometimes, his attitude is for the right reasons.
Hello. I have been a professional writer for 25 years with experience that encompasses articles, essays, websites, Internet content, stage plays, radio plays, industrial films, commercials, songwriting, lyrics, corporate films, and technical writing.
Some of my credits include one-man show, Ode To A Tough Guy, the life and times of Humphrey Bogart, performed in N.Y.C., Missouri, and Indiana. My film for the American Association of Orthodontists, Smart Mouth!, won three regional Emmy Awards for Best Film, Best Editing, and Best Directing. The original musical, Alphonse and Gaston Visit the Wild, Wild West, as well as my adaptation of Poe’s classic, The Cask of Amontillado, were produced and aired on National Public Radio, for which I also wrote, composed, and produced the original music. My writing clients also include Monsanto, Southwestern Bell, Mark Twain Bank, Insituform Systems, Marcone, and many others.
Also a skilled voice-over artist and actor, I was the voice of Dial-the-Weather, the OTB Result Line, and Dial-the-New York State Lottery in N.Y.C. As an actor I have performed Off-Broadway in NYC and at regional theatres across the US, and in commercials and industrial films too numerous to mention.
There is a whole lot more stuff I could stick in here but this is getting really boring, even to me.
