Avery Schreiber got his start as a stand-up comedian, which is how he met his longtime collaborator, Jack Burns. Together the two made the leap to television with appearances on "The Andy Griffith Show," "The Ed Sullivan Show," and "The Dean Martin Show" before they were given their own comedy series, "The Burns and Schreiber Comedy Hour," in 1973. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s Schreiber worked in such films such as "Swashbuckler" and the satirical "The Last Remake of Beau Geste." Marking a move towards family-friendly roles, Schreiber played Geppetto on "Christmas at Walt Disney World." In 1981 he appeared in "Caveman" and voiced an episode of "Smurfs." He would also lend his voice to children's cartoons "Ducktales" and "Animaniacs." In the '90s Schreiber made cameos in Mel Brooks' parodies "Robin Hood: Men in Tights " and "Dracula: Dead and Loving It." His last recurring TV role was that of the super in Monica and Chandler's building in the popular '90s sitcom "Friends."
