We're excited to have the hilarious Michael Gelbart join us on Friday, May 8 at 9 ET for live comedy.
With appearances on CBS’ The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, Comics Unleashed. Starz, Disney Channel, Teen Nick, Nickelodeon, Lifetime, performances at sold-out clubs and theaters, and two of his own prime time stand-up comedy specials, comedian, screenwriter and author Michael Gelbart is a force to be reckoned with. He has an audience-friendly approach, with material that is completely unique and crowd work that is second to none. His debut novel The Other Oprahs has been called “hilariously inspiring.”
Michael started his comedy career in high school and continued through college while majoring in broadcasting. After graduating, he landed his own prime-time CBC special, his first national exposure showcasing his abilities as a performer and writer. A second special followed on CTV/Comedy Network, with both airing on Comedy Central, as well as offers in TV and film. He was a writer and later head writer of the Canadian Screen Awards (formerly the Geminis), wrote dozens of episodes of sitcoms and animated series for Starz, Teen Nick, Cartoon Network, and Disney, while contributing to full seasons as creative consultant and in one case, playing himself as lead guest character. As a screenwriter, he has written five pilots and eight features, four of which have been optioned. He wrote and co-starred in the holiday movie "A Very Cool Christmas" which airs annually on Lifetime. His CDs "Hello Comedy Lovers" and "14 Smash Hits" can be heard frequently on Sirius XM.
When this is all over, you'll need to go out. And also re-introduce yourself to your friends. asembl makes doing both better. Check it out for all the best things going on and the easiest way to gather a group to do those things with.
