Greg Barris: Unbunned
May 19, 2014 @ 9:30 pm| $8.00
Union Hall favorite Greg Barris hosts a stellar lineup of comedy featuring Janeane Garofalo, Dave Hill, Roger Hailes, and more!
Greg Barris is a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene and is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that has been a frequent Time Out New York critic’s pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as ‘Excellent’ by The New Yorker. PAPER describes him as “the perfect combination of very good looking, hilarious and super-weird.”
Actress and Comedian Janeane Garofalo has been an American institution since she burst on the scene in 1992. She was awesome on the Ben Stiller Show AND The Larry Sanders Show, and killed it as Beth ” in Wet Hot American Summer; especially that part where she was all like, “THE PHONE! THE PHONE! WHERE’S THE F***ING PHONE!” And also in that part where she asks Katie if she should put on a clean pair of pants to impress Niles Crane. She was not the voice of Daria. (One of the Geeking Out hosts who is a big fan may or may not have written this bio.)
Who is Dave Hill? It’s a question I ask myself often, which is strange considering the kind of access I have. This much I can tell you though- I am the new Hollywood “It” girl, the next Leo, America’s fresh-faced boy next door, and your new best friend all rolled into one. I am a poet, a dancer, and- perhaps most of all- a thief. Soon I am to steal your heart.
Roger Hailes is a New York comedian with quick mind and a slow delivery. He’s written for Lat Night with Jilmmy Fallon, MTV, Sony, Comedy Central and himself. His voice can be heard in commercials and video games. He’s dazzled audiences on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, the Chappelle Show, VH1 and on stages all around the world. He was picked as Time Out New York’s comedian of the week and over the summer performed to rave reviews at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
