Late Show" and "Last Comic Standing", has been building a strong fan
base around the country with his act inspired by stories from his
Midwestern upbringing. His newly released CD "One Star Wonder" (Comedy
Central Records) hit the ground running as #6 in iTunes TOP Comedy
Albums (June 2009) and together with Greg's colorful perspective and
amazing characters, is destined to be a favorite. Greg attracts a
diverse audience spectrum, performing on networks such as BET (as a
finalist on "Coming to the Stage") Country Music Television's "Comedy
Stage". and Greg is also a favorite on the nationally syndicated "Bob
and Tom" radio show, which led him to tour theatres across the country
with the "Friends of Bob and Tom Comedy Tour".
bioshot2Greg Warren hails from St. Louis, MO, where his father was a
high school wrestling coach and his mother made him play clarinet in the
band. Greg has captivated audiences with anecdotes about the conflict
inherent in meshing two high school identities - varsity wrestler and
band geek. Greg's "Flute Man" bit is a perfect capsulation of the
insecurities of high school and the ongoing quest to be cool, and is one
of the most requested bits in the history of the "Bob and Tom" radio
show. 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 was named an All-American college wrestler.
While in college, Greg won a comedy contest and was invited to perform
at a local club in Columbia, MO, Deja Vu. After a stint selling Jif and
Pringles for corporate giant Procter & Gamble, Greg made the
decision to become a full time comedian. This bold move led to an
invitation to the prestigious "Just for Laughs Festival" in Montreal in
2002, where Greg performed as one of their featured "New Faces of
Comedy". He has also been seen on the Comedy Central show, "Premium
Blend". Greg has an arsenal of characters that he brings to life in his
act. He also highlights his current life struggles with the service
industry, moderation, and "One Star People".

currently be seen on Comedy Central Presents, heard on Sirius/XM Comedy
and will continue to tour across the country with "Bob and Tom's All
Stars" in addition to performing his act at Improvs and Funny Bones.

college wrestling for Fox Sports Midwest. Greg's Midwestern upbringing
and his ability to provide humorous social commentary gives him a wealth
of material that continues to gain him fans throughout the country.
