COLLEGE, MARINES, CORPORATE, COMEDY
A favorite on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom Radio Show. He has appeared on Late Night with Conan Obrien, Comedy Central, CBS, ABC, FOX, MTV and CMT.
Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all out style of physical humor, one liners and crowd work into a performance of immediate pandemonium and continuous laughs. His unique stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and theater appearances throughout the US and Canada.
Greg was raised in South Florida where in high school he amused the Catholic nuns by poking holes in his pockets enabling pencils to shoot out of his pant leg.
As a college basketball player, his enjoyment of half court shots earned him a sweet spot on the bench.
As a Captain in the Marines Corps, Greg kept his men highly motivated and could not overemphasize that camouflage is continuous.
While a buyer for Lockheed Corporation, he thought “Why make $200 a day, when I can be a comedian and make that in a week”.
After several serious jobs where he refused to be serious, Greg turned pro as a stand up comedian and landed a job as emcee for a theme park lumberjack show. This supplied him with four audiences a day, intoxicated ax swinging lumberjacks, and a log rolling dog.
Soon afterwards, he worked as stuntman in the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show at Universal Studios. “For $20 an hour, I’d run out and get hit in the head with a stick, perfect!”
He continually honed his style of comedy then headed to New York City.
While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and costarred in the independent film Tomorrow Night which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed television appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien (NBC), Premium Blend (Comedy Central), Make Me Laugh (5 episodes, Comedy Central), Louis CK’s Pulp Comics (Comedy Central), 30 Seconds to Fame (Fox), Cedric the Entertainer Presents (Fox) and Star Search (CBS).
When appearing on Star Search, Greg was spotted by Tom Griswold of the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Radio Show. Greg has since established himself as a favorite guest on the show and starred on the Bob @ Tom Comedy Central Special. He also headlines the Friends of The Bob @ Tom Theater Tour, which included a stop at the Las Vegas Comedy Festival.
A return appearance to the Montreal Comedy Festival along with the Halifax Comedy Festival and wild appearances on Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage”, “Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen” and running for president on “TOSH.O” (Comedy Central) have added to Greg’s popularity.
As someone who was once in the corporate world and who has since performed at hundreds of corporate events, I’m very aware of how important it is that the show is a hit.
I take pride in giving your audience laughs without using inappropriate or “blue” material. This allows your group to just sit back and enjoy.
Let me give you a little insider information concerning my performance.
The show kicks off in an over the top fashion that lets your people know they’re in for a party. I immediately use some of your specific company lingo and may even take a few swipes at your competition. Right away, your audience is engaged and enjoying a special program designed just for them.
I often mention positives about the company. “The market is coming back!” “12 years and still dominating!” “John refuses to retire, he can’t get enough!”
As for topics, your people have been through tough job interviews or play golf or have pets or hate working out or have been to college or the military, are married or single. Whatever, I’VE GOT THE JOKES!
The pace is fast and the craziness is continuous. Your audience will be energized for whatever else you have planned. A high energy, funny show is effective for kicking things off with a bang, waking up after lunch or wrapping up a great event.
The entire act is very physical and I’m always looking to include your people. Any suggestions from you are welcome as the more customized the show is, the more fun everybody has.
Greg now lives in Los Angeles where he continues to infiltrate the TV and movie biz with the intention of buying a llama farm and a kitchen fish tank.
