Author Unknown – The New Current – July 26th, 2013

      After seeing Greg’s stand up last year and being in attendance at two of his Podcast recordings I think I reconnected with comedy in a whole new way. Breathtakingly funny his shows had the charm and wit of a real comedy pro – and his podcasts have to be listened to really appreciate what he does!​
