GEORGE GALLO

George Gallo

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!

A child of the seventies and eighties 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, directing, and producing short segments for radio. These "bits" led to video segments that have since been featured on NBC, USA, 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.

JIMMY BRITT
Jimmy Britt
Jimmy Britt began his entertainment career in his teens as a DJ and an MC. Video production was soon to follow. He became involved in a variety of productions over the years, and has worn a variety of hats…from stagehand to tech, actor to writer, minion to manager. While he was familiar with, and even had friends in comedy…rather than pursuing stand-up, Jimmy developed his humor in other venues. By entertaining people as a trivia show host at bars, a wedding MC, an on-air DJ, a video producer and for a summer he was an NYC tour guide who didn’t know a goddamn thing about NYC landmarks. So now, as he pursues his stand-up venture, he pulls from his experiences and opinions as he enjoys the guilty pleasure of entertaining an audience.
TIM THOMSON
Tim Thompson
Irreverent, hilarious, silly, unpredictable, clothed! These are all words that have been used to describe Tim Thomson. For the better part of a decade, Tim has been entertaining audiences across America. He takes the crowd on a hilariously bizarre trip through his nonsensical stories about drunk dogs, pop culture and struggling to understand the ladies. A life long New Yorker, Tim draws his humor from his Irish Catholic upbringing, his crippling addiction to TV, movies and video games and his inability to tell the difference between reality and make believe. Want to hear something messed up? Tim is writing this. Why would he refer to himself in the third person? Yeah…weird.

Special Guest Host
ERIN SALM
Erin Salm
A scion of the deposed royal house of Nerdru, Erin Salm was raised on Earth as a rambunctious tomboy in the wilds of Pennsylvania. The need to conceal her true nature behind the guise of a human child made perfect training for the career where she has found her calling, that of an actor.

She was one half of the two woman cabaret Ordinary on the Side at Don't Tell Mama, she sang and danced as Janice (In the Schoolyard) NYFringe, and as Zelda the high school know-it-all in Electric Black's My Boyfriend is a Zombie. She's also tread the boards as Melinda (Human Resources) A.N.D., Pasiphae (Brooklyn Labyrinth) Oracle Theatre Co. and Marceline u/s (Marriage of Figaro) Pearl, and is a regular cast member of (Our Bar) *since 2012 with Project Theatre.

Regionally she has worked with Arden Theatre Co and Act II. She has also taken command as director for Lust for Revenge: An Evening of Jacobean, and McQuaid Brothers' Stupid Plans Poorly Executed.

Erin is the host of The Haughty Nerdress Podcast. She received her B.A. from Temple University and is a MFA Acting Candidate at The New School. She can be found online at www.ErinSalm.blogspot.com and www.thehaughtynerdress.blogspot.com.
