Arnie Reisman


Arnie Reisman lives on the island of Martha’s Vineyard with his wife, former television consumer reporter and executive coach, Paula Lyons. In October 2014 he was named Martha’s Vineyard Poet Laureate for a two-year term. He is a member of the Martha’s Vineyard Poetry Society and the Cleaveland House Poets. He is also a columnist for the Vineyard Gazette, a playwright, a filmmaker and a radio performer. His dark stage comedy, Not Constantinople, is scheduled for production at the Martha’s Vineyard Playhouse in June, 2015. Since the radio program’s debut in 1996, along with his wife, he has been a regular panelist on the weekly NPR comedy quiz show, Says You! Among his film credits are Hollywood On Trial (the Blacklist era), which received an Oscar nomination for Best Documentary, The Other Side of the Moon (Apollo astronaut program), which he co-produced for PBS with Mickey Lemle, and The Powder & the Glory (the Helena Rubinstein-Elizabeth Arden business rivalry), which he co-produced for PBS with Ann Carol Grossman. A theatrical musical based on this film is now being developed.
