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.
George began “performing” as early as the fourth grade, and says by the seventh grade even his teachers took notice. One teacher even went so far as to take George around where he impersonated all of the teachers in the school – and kept them all laughing while he did it. He was in fact voted “Most Humorous” by his high school class, but it was his talent for mimicry that has morphed into an uncanny ability to reproduce an exact sound, voice, or character.
A child of the seventies 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, producing, and directing short segments for radio. These “bits” led to video segments that have since been featured on NBC, Make Me Laff, 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.
