Hi, I'm Gus. I do stand-up comedy in New York City. It's my favorite thing to do, so I made this website about me doing it.
I'm lucky enough to perform regularly at The Lantern Comedy Club, so that's a pretty good place to find me. But you can also find me at New York Comedy Club, where my friends and I put on a monthly travel-themed stand-up and storytelling show called Comedy Road Trip.
Sometimes I do other shows at other places. Here is a complete list of every show I'll be performing on in the near future. Yes, it is accurate. I probably updated it yesterday. Click an event to see when and where it is and how you can reserve tickets:
I'm from Lexington, Kentucky, but I started performing in Beijing. Yes, China. I know, it sounds pretty weird. But there's a growing comedy scene in Asia and some of my best friends still perform there. If you find yourself in Beijing, please check out Comedy Club China. In Shanghai: Kung Fu Komedy. And in Hong Kong: TakeOut Comedy.
Another fun thing I do is write Onion articles. No, I don't work for The Onion. I just really like The Onion. I will probably continue to do this until someone that actually works at The Onion notices and hires me. Or tells me to stop.
Here are some of those articles. If you like them, please also check out the satirical news publication that I started with my friend Joe Schaefer. It's called The Minute Light.
Whew! You made it to the end. Congrats! That's some dedicated scrolling. If you just can't get enough, you can follow me on the usual things:
Or you can do it the old-fashioned way, by joining my email list:
I promise I'll only email you if there's something really important like I'm going on tour, appearing on TV, or need a kidney.
