A talented member of the American film fraternity, Adam McKay is a versatile film director, who is equally adept in the art of production and screenwriting. He directed a string of hit comedies during the early 2000s that helped him gain popularity. Prior to making waves as a director in Hollywood, he began life as scriptwriter eager to showcase his skills to anyone who cared in the entertainment industry. With slow but sure footing, he climbed up the ladder of fame thanks to his exceptionally brilliant comedic ideas. Through his mastery over elements of satire and commentary, his movies created a whole new niche of “smart dumb comedy”. The audience too appreciated his hilarious and notable farces in his films. Whether it is screenplay or direction, there is a certain anarchic brilliance to his approach; a reason why his films can be slapstick funny and thought provoking at the same time. The turning point in his career, however, came once he mastered the art of capturing absurdity of the general American populace and seamlessly transplanted into his recent, serious-natured movies. His glamorous career aside, he is also known for his various charity works.
