Don't Be Lame
EVAN SILVER is an Emmy-nominated, Cannes Lion-winning director. As a pimple-faced teen with highlights, he was rescued by NYC's vibrant downtown skateboarding, art, and punk scenes. Evan began to document these diverse subcultures on video, leading to a passion for filmmaking and comedy.
Evan has directed Super Bowl commercials, viral music videos and created award-winning films for Comedy Central, FunnyorDie, MTV, HBO, ESPN, The Daily Show, and Conan O'Brien. His extensive pro-social work has been recognized by Glaad, Imagen Awards, The One Show, Gracie Awards, The Guardian, and his mother, Gail.
Evan was recently selected to participate in the esteemed Directors Guild of America's 2020/21 Episodic Television Directing Program and was previously accepted into Shoot Magazine's New Director Showcase.
Evan was sent to detention in middle school for a cafeteria food fight that he still claims he did not start. The jury is still out.
