Gregg Oppenheimer, son of I Love Lucy creator-producer-head writer Jess Oppenheimer, began his comedy career at the tender age of four, when his father introduced him to Lucille Ball on the set of I Love Lucy. Kneeling down, a smiling Lucy asked Gregg, "Where did you get those big brown eyes?" Gregg's deadpan reply: "They came with the face." Lucy nearly fell over laughing.
In 1996, Gregg left a successful career as partner in the international law firm O'Melveny & Myers to complete his late father's humorous memoir, Laughs, Luck...and Lucy: How I Came to Create the Most Popular Sitcom of All Time. That book was the inspiration for Gregg’s comedy play, I Love Lucy: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Sitcom. Gregg also produced the award-winning I Love Lucy DVD Series for CBS and Paramount.
