NBC, Comedy Central GARY GULMAN @ Dick's Beantown Comedy Vault
December 15 - December 16, 2011
Gary Gulman has had remarkable success in every pursuit he has put his boundless energy and determination into. He was a three-sport varsity athlete at Peabody Veterans Memorial High School as well as a member of the National Honors Society. After high school Gary received a full scholarship to play for the perpetually bowl-bound football program at Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. He also was a Dean’s List student in the rigorous accounting program at B.C.’s renowned Carroll School of Management. A young man of varied interests, one constant was his love for all forms of comedy. A dedicated fan of late night comedy, his accommodating mother allowed him to stay up to watch Saturday Night Live from the time he was six. (He rarely stayed awake past Weekend Update.)
After graduating in the mid-nineties Gary worked for the C.P.A. firm then called Coopers & Lybrand. He also decided this was the opportune time to pursue his child hood dream of “telling jokes on tv.” He would work a 12-hour day as an accountant and then spend his nights on a quest for performance time at every comedy venue in New England. For years he would often drive six hours or more in exchange for most times nothing more than five minutes with a stage and a microphone. Gary would perform in rock clubs, used book stores, bars, dance clubs and anywhere else that would indulge his fervor for comedy.
After two years Gary left his accounting job and subsequently worked as a substitute high school teacher and Starbucks Coffee employee in order to allow himself more time to devote to his growing passion for writing and performing jokes. (Also he was bored of being an accountant) He spent those years on a relentless mission to become a professional stand-up.
In 1999, after thousands of open-mike shows and countless hours writing and rewriting jokes in what became piles of composition notebooks, Gary was selected to perform in the prestigious Montreal International Comedy Festival. Within six months of his performances at this showcase, attended by hundreds of comedy industry elites he reached milestones that many entertainers never reach. That fall, he performed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, and secured a deal to write and star in a biographical situation comedy for Twentieth Century Fox.
Since 1999 Gary has maintained his uncommon devotion and work ethic and continued on his path of excellence. He has made many more television appearances, starred in two more pilots and appeared in his own half hour special on Showtime. Always striving for greatness, Gary continues to refine his act and in a short time has become one of the most unique, charming voices in contemporary American Stand-up Comedy.
