Besides regularly performing in many a New York City comedy club, Kurt Metzger’s credits include performing on Comedy Central’s “Live at Gotham,” Showtime’s “White Boyz in the Hood” and as a regular on VH1’s “Best Week Ever.” Kurt has filmed a half-hour special for “Comedy Central Presents” and appeared on Comedy Central’s “Important Things with Demetri Martin,” IFC’s “Z-Rock” and will be a regular on the new Comedy Central program “Ugly Americans.” Previously, he was the stand out comedian at the Montreal Comedy Festival’s New Faces showcase. He has also wrote for “Chappelle’s Show” on Comedy Central and several other SpikeTV, VH1 and Comedy Central programs.
Greg’s TV credits also include Country Music Television’s “Comedy Stage” and Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” where he was warmly endorsed by Wanda Sykes. A favorite on the nationally syndicated “Bob and Tom” radio show, Greg entertained in theaters across the country with the “Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour.” His “Flute Man” bit is one of the most requested in the history of the show. In it, he perfectly capsulizes the insecurities of high school and the ongoing quest to be cool. Greg grew up in St. Louis with his dad who was his high school wrestling coach, an experience that served as a wellspring of material, and his mother who made him wear ridiculous clothes and take clarinet lessons, another source of comedic inspiration. He was a West Point cadet for about a year, where he distinguished himself by amassing an impressive tally of demerits and endless hours of pointless marching. At the University of Missouri, he studied journalism and was named an All-American wrestler. While a student at Mizzou, Greg won a comedy contest and was invited to perform at a local club, Déjà Vu. After a stint pitching Pringles and Jif for corporate giant Proctor & Gamble, Greg made the move to full time comedian. From an early invitation to Montreal’s Just For Laughs festival, to his ongoing cross-country club appearances, Greg continues to make people laugh.
