The DC Comedy Festival is brought to you by a group of local comedians who want to bring attention to and unite the comedy community in our city. From up-and-comers to national headliners, we want you to see what your city has been hiding—a flourishing comedy scene filled with some of the best, brightest, and funniest minds in the game.
While it’s often said that tragedy plus time equals comedy, it could just as easily be said that enthusiasm minus caution equals comedian Greg Stone. Regarded by his peers as one of the funniest storytellers in New York, Greg is a fixture at many of Manhattan’s top comedy clubs and independent shows, where he shares true stories of the highs and lows caused by his lack of inhibition. Greg has recently performed on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, TruTV’s “Friends of the People,” and AXS TV’s “Gotham Comedy Live.” Bowing to the increasing demand that he be heard and not seen, Greg has also been featured on Sirius/XM Radio’s The Bennington Show, hit podcasts like “Tuesdays with Stories” and not-a-hit-but-still-hilarious podcasts like “The Rad Dudecast,” which Greg co-hosts with Anthony DeVito and Brendan Eyre. Not bad for a guy who spends a good portion of his spare time posing action figures in his bedroom. Ask him politely and he’ll tell you about the time he drunkenly jumped on stage with Michael Bolton.
