And even before that, he did it for 4 years in college, at The University of California, San Diego, where his show was the subject of his Honors Thesis, and even became a class that students could take for 4 units.

Random facts include… when he was still in college he pranked his way onto THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO, and a memorable episode of BLIND DATE, pretending he was an Israeli guy with no social skills, and had one of the most awkward dates ever. For his college talk show, Carmen Electra was his last guest, and Gleib was featured all over her E! True Hollywood Story.
He is proudest that he can probably eat more than you.
Sam Tripoli views comedy as a calling rather a profession. It’s a passion that he’s been preaching to audiences at comedy clubs across the country and on television, including Comedy Centrals’ “Premium Blend” (receiving only one of two standing ovations in the history of the show), a frolicsome turn as a male escort for E! Entertainment’s “Party @ the Palms,” “The Late Late Show on CBS”, “Comic Unleashed” and as a co-host of Spike TV’s “Wide World of Spike,” a comedy-action cult classic. On stage he’s a force of nature, pacing the stage like a cyclone of funny as he questions authority and the conventions of our society one moment, then earnestly expresses his affinity for the bizarre the next. His comedy has no limits – its whatever he’s thinking about, and that’s usually what everyone else is thinking about, even though sometimes we don’t like to admit to it. “I like to think of myself as the little voice in everyone’s head, except I have a microphone and I’m funnier,” Sam says.
Hmph. A summary of ME? I dunno. I'm a comic. From Manhattan - originally from Rochester, NY, where the sun rarely shines and pizza and beer flow like.....beer. Coffee makes me nervous, but I drink it anyways. My days fly by doing....I don't even know what. Stuff like this? Writing profiles on some random....friend site? I e-mail people and check out websites, and drink coffee and do yoga, and go to Target ALOT. I travel for comedy often, so making travel arrangements is really consuming - and I worry about money for a large portion of my day. This is just today, though and next week I'll read this and think I'll need to change it. For the most part, I'm just waiting. My website says it best at www.themariannesierk.com/
