This week, Kaizen Komedy reviews the very methodical and layered writing of Gary Gulman. He is one of the few comics who constantly revisits and reworks bits and is a true Comic’s Comic. Gulman has a way of writing about the most trivial of details in a way that brings them to life more than they initially were. Through personification, specificity, and sarcasm, Gulman is able to form long well rounded bits that have multiple story arcs, all working towards a satisfying resolve.
Born on July 17, 1970 in Peabody, Massachusetts. After High School Gulman attended Boston College on a Football Scholarship. Since graduation he held various jobs, one of which consisted of being a teacher where he’d often try jokes out on his students.
In 2004, Gulman made his television debut on the second season of “Last Comic Standing”, where he took third place. He returned for the show’s third season and released his first album, “Conversations with Inanimate Objects”, the following year. Since then he has performed multiple times on almost every Late Night Show and has released a number of specials.
In this episode, we break down the following jokes: Role Play (No Can Defend 2012), Not That into You (It's About Time 2016), and Karate Kid (In This Economy 2013) - all of these can be found on Spotify.
