Murray Meyer is a criminal lawyer, comedian, story-teller and writer. He has practiced Criminal Defense Law in Los Angeles for the last 30 years. During that time, he has had over one hundred criminal trials and estimates his winning percentage at well over .400 which would put him in Cooperstown if law were baseball.

During the same period, he’s also been a stand-up comic, playwright for Me and Errol (not so funny) and written and performed in three comedic one-man shows – It’s Criminal! The Comedy, Walking Back To Brooklyn and his current show It’s Shameful! A Deadbeat Dad’s Story. His work has been produced at the San Francisco, Toronto and Seattle Fringe Festivals and in Los Angeles, New York and Montreal. “Meyer’s transition from character to character and from past to present is seamless, funny and truly entertaining,” wrote Kristen Larocque, Montreal Mirror.

Meyer has been writing and producing legal comedy shorts for his website itscriminalthecomedy.com for the last decade. “This is my take on the daily menu of mishegas (craziness) I encounter in my job as a criminal defense lawyer,” says Meyer. And after seeing one of his shows, the LA Weekly wrote, “More lawyers should do one-person shows.”

Murray has four children, four grandchildren and is married to the playwright/director Laurel Ollstein.
