Greg Hahn has parlayed his absurdly energetic, all-out physical humor, one-liners and crowd work into an act with no waiting for the funny, just immediate pandemonium and panic. His massive likeability and wild stylings have led to numerous television, corporate and college appearances throughout the country.
Developmentally arrested, Greg was raised in South Florida where in high school he amused the Catholic nuns by poking holes in his pockets enabling pens and pencils to shoot out of his pant leg. As a college basketball player his tendency for half court shots got him benched. As a Captain in the Marines Corps, Greg kept his men highly motivated and could not overemphasize that camouflage be 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.
The career began with several months of brutal open mics and talent shows. He then auditioned to emcee for the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show at Six Flags. Greg landed this gig, which supplied him with a microphone and four huge audiences a day, “I had to do jokes while a bunch of drunk guys ran around swinging axes. It was a very exciting show, sometimes a guy would lop his foot off.”
Soon afterwards, he worked as an actor in the Wild Wild Wild West Stunt Show at Universal Studios. “For $20 an hour, I’d run out, fall down a few times and get hit in the head with a stick.”
At night he continually honed his Stand-Up skills and after several years of club work moved his career to New York City.
While in New York, Greg developed into a touring headliner and co-starred in the independent film Tomorrow Night that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Then, after successful shows at the Montreal and Chicago Comedy Festivals, Greg enjoyed hit television appearances on Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, Make Me Laugh (5 episodes) and Louis CK’s Pulp Comics. He recently appeared on 30 Seconds to Fame with the Fox Network.
Continuing to advance his career in film and television, Greg has since relocated to Los Angeles where in between shows he does lots of pull-ups, and goes ballistic on his drum set.
