George Gallo is one of those performers that keeps his audiences riveted because they don’t want to miss a thing.  Whether he is performing on stage, or directing/producing/acting in a video short, he is an entertainer to the very core! 


George began performing as early as the fourth grade, and says by the seventh grade even his teachers took notice.  One teacher even went so far as to take George around where he impersonated all of the teachers in the school and kept them all laughing while he did it. He was in fact voted "Most Humorous" by his high school class, but it was his talent for mimicry that has evolved into an uncanny ability to reproduce an exact sound, voice, or character.


A child of the seventies and eighties and admitted science fiction freak, his influences include Cheech and Chong, Robins Williams, Eddie Murphy and Steven Spielberg movies.  His involvement as an extreme BMX bicyclist gave him the physical confidence to work in a high degree of physicality into his performances, and he soon began acting in, directing, and producing short segments for radio.  These "bits" led to video segments that have since been featured on NBC, USA, FOX, and Comedy Central, to name a few.  Word of his talent for writing led to several segment writer gigs, as well as featured comic spots at some of NY's most well-known comedy venues.

 

Gallo doesn’t stop there, he says he likes to have a lot going on at once for the creative flow. Whether it is simple joke telling, chatting up the audience, or demonstrating his latest cast of characters (ask him about Henry, his newest character, or the post-plastic surgery woman face), Gallo delivers it all with an almost alarming level of energy.  One of his standard bits that you don’t want to miss include the backwards record because it not only showcases his sound effect talent, but it is so funny that it is hard to tell which is more impressive the sound replication or the humor.


With more than 40 video shorts to his credit including the most recent “Asian Striped Invasion” and "Accidental Eyewitness News". George plays with the human condition like dangling yarn in front of a cat.  A native Long Islander, he has been performing across the tri-state area for more than 15 years. His stints on 92.3 K-Rock, Caroline’s Comedy Hour, Last Comic Standing, Live at Gotham Comedy Club and as a segment writer make him one of the most diverse and sought-after entertainers in the industry.

 

George is very selective about his content and language, and feels responsible to create comedy that is funny without being offensive.  (Unless the offensive thing is really funny) For more info or to view George's video shorts and other credits, visit www.georgegallo.com.
