Dan Goor grew up outside of Washington, D.C. with a dual interest in comedy and science. His passion took him to Harvard, where he studied biochemistry and also spent time writing comedy in his spare time. By the time college ended, Goor had plans to go to medical school, but spent some time messing around and applying for writing jobs. The off-hand idea worked and Goor soon joined the writing staff of "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central 1996- ) in 1998, where he stayed for three years, culminating in being a part of an Emmy-winning team in 2001. He left the show and spent a year writing for "Last Call with Carson Daly" (NBC 2002- ) before joining the writing staff for five years at "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" (NBC 1993-2009), where he notched another Emmy in 2007. He left late night in 2008 and started working with his college friend Mike Schur on the comedy "Parks and Recreation" (NBC 2009-2015). He was a key part of the writer's room, with numerous episodes to his credit. Goor also directed a few episodes of the series as well. He tried and failed to get his own show off the ground, with "Family Practice" (NBC 2011) only getting as far as shooting a pilot. A few years after that, Goor paired up with Schur to create "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" (Fox/NBC 2013- ), a sitcom starring Andy Samberg. The show ran for several seasons on Fox before being cancelled. However, it was revived by NBC for its sixth season in 2019.
