April 16-17 – George Gallo


From The Jim Bruer Show, Comedy Central, MTV

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 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, producing, and directing short segments for radio. These “bits” led to video segments that have since been featured on NBC, Make Me Laff, 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; whether it’s 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.
A few 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’s so funny that it’s 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
“Downtown Taxi in NYC” and “Annoying Cell Phone Guy” (www.georgegallo.com) 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, Short Attention Span Theatre, Evening at the Improv 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 really funny)

April 30-May 1 – Pat Dixon


From NY Crime Report, Compound Media, VH1
Also Featuring Susan Golden

Buy Tickets

Pat Dixon is an experienced standup who has been seen in his own half hour special (Comedy Central), as a cast member on Vh1’s Best Week Ever and The Late, Late Show (CBS). Earlier this year, Dixon appeared on Comedy Central’s This Is Not Happening, on which he found the comedy in the story of an ex-girlfriend who was arrested (and later convicted) for his attempted murder after following him to an IHOP restaurant with a gun and ambushing him in the parking lot.  Dixon is also the host of The New York City Crime Report, a true crime podcast which has featured comedy based on tabloid crime stories from the NY Post since 2011. He also hosts 2 shows on Anthony Cumia’s Compound Media (Crime Report and TRUMP) which broadcast LIVE each week.

Pat Dixon’s style is interactive and fun, and while his stand-up is far from typical, his show can be enjoyed and appreciated by any kind of person. His stuff about his wives (current and past) and casual observations about relationships make this show perfect for couples – whether it’s a first date or a 50th anniversary – but families, loners, office parties and bachelorettes are all encouraged to come and laugh, because there’s something for everybody.

Some of his over-the-top observations and surprising punchlines would qualify for an R-rating, but his ease on stage and obvious respect for the audience take the edge off. He’s just a funny guy, and what he does is appreciated by comedy nerds, casual fans and even people who don’t tend to like stand-up comedy at all.
He’s performed in theaters, comedy clubs and bars in (almost) every state and earned a reputation as “a rare comedian who can say everything that’s on his mind without pissing everybody off.”
