Feature Duncan Gale I.O. CHICAGO, PLAYGROUND THEATER, THE WING FIX
Duncan Gale hails from Charlottesville, VA originally, but he's been all over. After attending college in Oberlin, OH, studying improvisational theater in Chicago, IL, and spending a couple of years of graduate school in Cambridge, MA, he decided he wanted to come out to Southern California for the big show: a PhD program in Philosophy of Religion! But amidst his years of toil in graduate school, he has rediscovered comedy, and has been told by a couple of non-descript lay-abouts that he actually has kind of a knack for it! He sees the stage as a place to unleash his erudite insanity, and if a small contingent of the crowd turns out to be into it, that's cool. BOOK
Comedian Zach Young RINGTALK.COM, RING TALK RADIO, UNIVERSITY TIMES, THE CHAFFEY REVIEW,
I do anything from poop jokes to politics, which I guess means I do poop jokes. A Poop Joke Extraordinaire, as it were. I add phrases like "as it were" to the end of my sentences to make myself sound smarter than I really am, as it were. I work in an office so I am fully prepared to drive that tired subject into the ground and scrape the bottom of the barrel for cheap laffs. "Cheap laffs" are not to be confused with "cheap laughs", as "laffs" are even cheaper than "laughs", as it were. As you can tell, I have a Bachelor's in English. Thank you for your consideration.

I am from La Verne CA and I was born and raised in America but I am 100% Jordanian that means middles east or "terrorist" to the TSA. Even though I look like a fat really white, white guy. I love making funny YouTube videos with friends and making people laugh. And I have a huge heart mostly for animals and especially dogs. And I'm a little stereo typical. By that I mean I sometimes build my own bombs, but for paintball and airsoft not to blow people up. And I love cooking but mostly for the end result of cooking, eating! I have always loved making people laugh and acting a fool at myself like poking fun at my weight and my way with the ladies but I never try to take things too seriously because where´s the fun in that?
