The Salesman Synopsis:
Prior to his 20-years in comedy, Greg Warren had a career with Procter & Gamble, spreading a different kind of joy: peanut butter. Greg Warren’s The Salesman, a new comedy special from director Nate Bargatze, delivers an hour of delicious, clean comedy that finds humor in life’s most mundane details. From a not-at-all unbiased breakdown of peanut butter brands, to a deep dive on insurance cards, to the story of tricking Nikki Glaser in a Starbucks bathroom, Greg finds the funny in the familiar, revealing there’s humor everywhere we look – even in a jar.
Greg Warren Bio:
Greg Warren is set to release his upcoming special The Salesman, co-produced by Nateland and 800 Pound Gorilla Media, and directed by Nate Bargatze. The special tells the story of his post-college phase when he had a stint selling Jif and Pringles for Procter & Gamble which eventually led to his decision to become a full-time comedian. An honest mix of self-deprecation, frustration and an arsenal of lifelike characters highlight Greg’s colorful perspective.
He can be seen in his last special, Where The Field Corn Grows, Fish Sandwich on Dry Bar Comedy, Late Night with Seth Meyers, The Late Late Show and Comedy Central Presents. Greg attracts a diverse audience spectrum, having performed as a finalist on BET’s Coming to the Stage and on Country Music Television. He is a favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show, which led to touring theaters nationwide with The Bob & Tom All Stars Comedy Tour. Greg’s comedy has been a daily staple on Sirius/XM’s Laugh USA and Jeff and Larry’s Comedy Roundup channels for a decade. You can hear him guesting on podcasts like Never Not Funny, Bertcast, Dumb People Town, and many more. He's performed as a New Face of Comedy at JFL, on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend and NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
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 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.
