George is a musician living in Queens, NY. Until the COVID-19 pandemic caused businesses to shut down, he worked as a manager in a record shop.
Originally from Massachusetts, he's now been in NYC for around twenty years, during which time he's been an active member of the local indie rock scene, playing guitar and singing in multiple groups. Over the years, George became known among his friends for his funny stage banter and, after hearing from just the right number of people (254, to be exact) that "maybe he should be a comedian," he finally gave it a shot. After starting out at the city's open mics, he eventually founded his own monthly comedy show called "Spit Take Friday," at Bushwick DIY venue turned nonprofit, Fort Useless.
From 2014 to 2016, an offshoot of that live comedy show called Spit Take Comedy was launched on BTR as both a podcast and a video series. Part interview, part goofing, the show featured such comedic titans such as Dave Hill, Maeve Higgins, Jo Firestone and plenty more.
The funny and charming Mary Houlihan drops in to talk to George about whether there’s a duality in her work as an artist and comedian. They also discuss classic rock favorites and their shared fandom of The Best Show.
The hilarious Dean Masello stops by on his very own birthday to talk mustaches and his upcoming fatherhood! He also fills George in on his one man show “I’m So OCD”, as well as his lawyering past and MMA preferences.
