Profile Bio Text
Peter John Farrelly (born December 17, 1956) is an American film director, screenwriter, producer and novelist. The Farrelly Brothers are mostly famous for directing and producing gross-out humor romantic comedy films such as, Dumb and Dumber, Me, Myself and Irene, There`s Something About Mary and The Heartbreak Kid. Farrelly was born in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, the son of Mariann (née Neary), a nurse practitioner, and Robert Leo Farrelly, a doctor. He was raised in Cumberland, Rhode Island and graduated from Providence College, which he described himself as a relatively poor student who partied hard, before moving onto a salesman job in Boston, Massachusetts. Farrelly dreamed of being a writer and spent many sales trips out on the road thinking up stories. According to Farrelly, he had been living with a friend in Las Vegas and working on a novel. One day he woke up with another hangover and decided it was time to go to church. Put off by the priest`s incessant plea for donations, Farrelly left the mess early. Standing alone outside in the hot sun, Farrelly looked down and saw a used condom laying on the church steps. He took this as a sign and left Las Vegas that day. He returned back east and finished his novel, Outside Providence.
Together with his brother, Bobby Farrelly, he has written, directed, and produced several comedy films including There`s Something About Mary, Dumb and Dumber, Kingpin, Shallow Hal, Me, Myself and Irene, Stuck on You, and Fever Pitch. They also conceived the Seinfeld episode "The Virgin" (4.10). Dumb and Dumber was also written by Bennett Yellin. Yellin has been credited with contributing to numerous other Farrelly Brothers films as well. In 2006, Farrelly directed a series of television commercials for the Miller Lite beer brand, which featured actor Burt Reynolds, American football player Jerome Bettis, and professional wrestler Triple H. Farrelly is also a published novelist, with works including Outside Providence and The Comedy Writer.
