Steven Wayne Koren is an American writer/producer and screenwriter. Most notably, he has written for Saturday Night Live, Seinfeld, and Veep. He also wrote or co-wrote the movies Bruce Almighty, Click, A Night at the Roxbury, and Superstar.

In addition, he has contributed to Curb Your Enthusiasm (specifically, the "Palestinian Chicken" episode).

Koren was born in Queens, New York,[1] and attended Benjamin N. Cardozo High School in Bayside, Queens.


After college, he began his career as an NBC page. Among his duties as a page was working for Saturday Night Live. As a Rockefeller Center tour guide, Koren would hand jokes to David Letterman and Dennis Miller as they passed in the hall, which landed him a writing gig on SNL.[2] He also occasionally acted for the series.[3]

While at SNL, he wrote/co-wrote Weekend Update, Mary Katherine Gallagher, The Roxbury Guys, Adam Sandler’s The Denise Show, The Joe Pesci Show, Jim Carrey’s Hot Tub Lifeguard, among many other sketches.

In addition, he helped write and performed on Adam Sandler’s Platinum debut album They’re All Gonna Laugh at You.

Later, he became a writer for Seinfeld, and wrote the episodes "The Abstinence", "The English Patient", "The Serenity Now", and "The Dealership". He was also one of the contributors to the teleplay for "The Frogger" and "The Puerto Rican Day".[citation needed]

In the episode "The Van Buren Boys", a character named Steve Koren is George Costanza's choice for the first Susan Biddle Ross Scholarship to be granted by the Susan Ross Foundation.[citation needed]

Koren has executive-produced several films such as Adam Sandler's Grown Ups (2010), Just Go with It (2011), Blended (2014), and Pixels (2015). Koren also wrote the movie Superstar, starring Molly Shannon and Will Ferrell.
