According to Punchline Magazine, Greg Warren is a comic who’s been “on the rise for the last decade.” Most recently seen on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson,” Greg’s humor is largely based on stories and characters from his Midwestern background. Called a “comic’s comic” by Kim Coles and “that white dude” by an anonymous audience member, Greg made several appearances on BET’s “Coming To The Stage,” where he captivated audiences and judges with anecdotes of his crazy Uncle Earl and the conflicts inherent in meshing two high school identities: varsity wrestler and clarinet player (aka band geek).

Greg’s TV credits also include Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage” and Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” where he was warmly endorsed by Wanda Sykes. A favorite on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show, Greg entertained in theaters across the country with the “Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour.” His “Flute Man” bit is one of the most requested in the history of the show. In it, he perfectly capsulizes the insecurities of high school and the ongoing quest to be cool. Greg grew up in St. Louis with his dad who was his high school wrestling coach, an experience that served as a wellspring of material, and his mother who made him wear ridiculous clothes and take clarinet lessons, another source of comedic inspiration. He was a West Point cadet for about a year, where he distinguished himself by amassing an impressive tally of demerits and endless hours of pointless marching. At the University of Missouri, he studied journalism and was named an All-American wrestler. While a student at Mizzou, Greg won a comedy contest and was invited to perform at a local club, Déjà Vu. After a stint pitching Pringles and Jif for corporate giant Proctor & Gamble, Greg made the move to full time comedian. From an early invitation to Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival, to his ongoing cross-country club appearances, Greg continues to make people laugh.

  • Kevin McCaffery
    December 16, 2017 at 8:00 PM Kevin McCaffery
    Kevin McCaffrey is a comedian & writer based out of New York City. He made his network TV debut on The Late Show with David Letterman in November of 2013 (after which he was hired to do warm-up for the show), and he currently appears every week on truTV Presents: World’s Dumbest. He has also appeared on VH1’s I Love the 2000s, History Channel’s I Love the 1880s, and The List on the WWE Network. Kevin hosts College Stories with Kevin McCaffrey, a weekly podcast talking to comics, writers, and actors about their time in college, and their best/funniest/craziest stories from that time.
     
    Originally from Chicago, he graduated from Ball State University despite the school’s general policy of taking attendance. Since then he has been a contributing monologue writer for The Late Show with David Letterman. Kevin has also appeared on The Late Show many times as an actor, once being hosed down by Dave with a fire extinguisher. To his knowledge, this is an honor Kevin shares only with Richard Simmons.
     
    When asked to describe his exceedingly unique brand of comedy, Kevin says, “What I do, is I try to say stuff that’s funny.” That’s how avant-garde he is! As a performer, he relies on content more than volume; he’s not the crazy props guy, the crazy angry guy, or the crazy fat guy. At least not yet.
