Gary Gulman is a stand-up comedian you should know.
Gary began performing at open mics in the early 90s. He was a finalist on the NBC reality talent show Last Comic Standing in its second and third seasons. His humor has a literary quality — delighting in wordplay and allusions while remaining grounded. He finds comedy in character, action, and honest human experience.
Since January 1, 2019, Gary has been posting daily tips for aspiring comedians on his Twitter feed. With a long career to draw from, Gary’s tips offer lessons in resilience, introspection, and the value of craft specifically for comedians but also for anyone trying to do their best work.
You’ve probably seen Gary’s stand-up on TV as he is one of only a handful of comedians to appear on every major late-night comedy show, having performed on Letterman, Leno, Colbert, Ferguson, Kimmel, Meyers, Conan, and more.
Gary has released 4 one-hour specials – two on Comedy Central, one on Netflix, and his latest, The Great Depresh, on HBO. This new special was executive produced by Judd Apatow and has been receiving rave reviews. With both humor and heart, Gary opens up about his lifelong experiences with depression.
Fellow comedian Josh Gondelman tweets: “Okay so @GaryGulman’s new HBO special “The Great Depresh” is like…astonishingly good. So much emotional depth and jokes as good as it’s possible for jokes to be. Watch it!!!”
