Comedian Greg Warren Brings his Comedy to Edwardsville for a Special Taping
May 10, 2019-  Record Label and Production Company 800 Pound Gorilla Records is Proud to Present Greg Warren’s Comedy Special Taping at The Wildey Theatre in Edwardsville, IL. on July 20th. Showtimes are 7:00 p.m. and 9:15p.m. General addmission tickets are $15 and on sale now.  You must be 18 or older to attend.
Warren, a St. Louis native, has appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, Comedy Central, Last Comic Standing and The Late Late Show on CBS.  He is a fan favorite on “The Bob and Tom Show”, where he’s known as “Flute Man Greg”.   He can be heard daily on SiriusXM’s Laugh USA and Jeff & Larry’s Comedy Roundup channels.
Warren plans to dedicate a good portion of his new comedy special to the topic of farming.
Warren feels The Wildey Theater is a perfect place for to record his new project. “It has a classic look with a great marquee and a remarkable ambiance.  There were options to shoot in New York or LA, but this is a Midwestern special belongs in the Midwest. Edwardsville is the perfect location.”
The special will be directed by Eric Abrams and produced by Matt Schuler. Between the two of them, they have worked with Ari Shaffir, Chad Daniels, Comedy Central’s series “This is Not Happening, Michael Che, Bert Kreischer, Alonzo Bodden, Steve Byrne and several others.
Greg Warren, most recently seen on Dry Bar Comedy, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show and Comedy Central Presents, has built a strong fan base with an act inspired by his Midwestern upbringing.  His CDs, Fish Sandwich (2016) Running Out of Time (Sept 2013) and One Star Wonder (June 2009) hit #1, #3 and #6 respectively in iTunes Top Comedy Albums.  A mix of self-deprecation, frustration and an arsenal of lifelike characters highlight Greg’s colorful perspective.
Greg hails from St. Louis, MO, where his father was a high school wrestling coach and his mother made him play clarinet in the band. He has captivated audiences with anecdotes about the conflict inherent in meshing the two disparate high school identities of varsity wrestler and band geek. Greg’s “Flute Man” bit is a perfect encapsulation of the insecurities of high school and the ongoing quest to be cool and is one of the most requested bits in the history of the Bob & Tom Show. Greg was also a West Point Cadet, where he distinguished himself by amassing an impressive tally of demerits and endless hours of pointless marching. After moving on to the University of Missouri, he studied journalism and became an All-American college wrestler.
During college, Greg won a comedy contest and was invited to perform at Déjà Vu, a local club in Columbia, MO. After a stint selling Jif and Pringles for Procter & Gamble, Greg made the decision to become a full-time comedian. This bold move led to an invitation to Montreal’s prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in 2002, where Greg performed as one of the featured New Faces of Comedy. He has also been seen on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
Greg’s background resulted in a gig doing college wrestling color commentary for Fox Sports Midwest. He is heard daily on Sirius/XM Comedy and headlines comedy clubs across the country.  He appeared in the independent films 23 Minutes to Sunrise and Marshall The Miracle Dog.
