Mixing an incisive wit with scathing sarcasm, Greg Fitzsimmons has achieved success as a stand-up, Emmy Award winning writer and host on both radio and TV. Greg is host of The Greg Fitzsimmons Show, on SiriusXM’s "Howard 101” and twice a week puts out the hugely popular FitzDog Radio podcast. A regular on @Midnight, Conan O’Brien, Jimmy Kimmel, and The Tonight Show, Greg has made more than 50 visits to The Howard Stern Show.
Greg has a new one-hour standup special on Comedy Central, stars in season 2 of “How to be a Grown Up” (TRU TV) and appeared on Louie (FX) this past season. He is a frequent guest on The Adam Carolla Show and The Joe Rogan Experience and will appear later this year in both Comedy Bang Bang (IFC) and Aqua Teen Hunger Force (Adult Swim)
A frequent panelist for five years on Chelsea Lately, Greg also spent five years on VH1’s Best Week Ever, hosted Pumped (The Speed Channel) last year and he starred in two half-hour stand-up specials on Comedy Central. Greg’s 2011 book, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons, climbed the best-seller charts and garnered outstanding reviews from NPR and Vanity Fair.
Writing credits include HBO’s Lucky Louie, Cedric the Entertainer Presents, Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, The Man Show and many others. On his mantle beside the four Daytime Emmys he won as a writer and producer on The Ellen DeGeneres Show sit “The Jury Award for Best Comedian” from The HBO Comedy Arts Festival and a Cable Ace Award for the MTV game show he hosted called Idiot Savants.
Comedian and writer, Gene Pompa's television credits include regular appearances on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien," on NBC and a handful of appearances on "The Late, Late Show" on CBS. Other credits include Comedy Central, HBO, Que Locos on Galavision, Showtime's "Latino Laugh Festival," and "In Living Color" on FOX, and Si TV! Gene co-starred in Paul Rodriguez' "Comedy Rehab" in May, 2009.
Gene has completed two half-hour solo stand-up specials, "Pompalicious" for Comedy Central and a self-titled half-hour stand-up special for SI! TV, both airing regularly in rotation.
Gene's offbeat perspective plays extremely well with college age audiences and crosses all racial and ethnic lines. He headlines regularly at the Improvs in Hollywood, Irvine, Brea and Ontario and across the country, doing a stand-up show with great social relevance and irrelevance.
Gene was born in East Los Angeles and raised in the working-class suburbs of Southern California. He's been a Mexican-American for most of his life, except for a few years during the 70's, when he was a "practicing Chicano." As a product of the multi-ethnic suburbs of Los Angeles, Gene was inspired to utilize universal themes in his stand-up and his writing.
The show is a fundraiser to benefit Autobahn Soccer Community, a recreational soccer league that provides children in the LA area a healthy, safe and fun environment to learn the game of soccer and develop healthy lifestyle skills. Autobahn also provides scholarships for youth, club soccer players in Pacific Coast Soccer Club (PCSC).
