    When in Los Angeles, he can often be seen performing at the legendary Hollywood Improv ImprovLogo.jpg

    No stranger to the internets, Gleib’s online videos have received a total of more than 15 MILLION VIEWS. In 2010 he did comedic news pieces for Myspace. This was the first time they have ever given anyone a talent deal, and his videos were reviewed as “The best thing Myspace has ever done.”

    In 2006 he sold a pilot called THE GLEIB SHOW to FOX fox_tv_logo-med-small_1.jpg produced by Saturday Night Live’s Lorne Michaels and NBC/Universal. Before that “The Gleib Show” ran for 3 seasons as the #1 show on the National Lampoon Network, airing to millions of college students across the country. 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. This helped several of his close friends graduate. He was asked to speak at his graduation, and filled it with lots of inappropriate jokes and a Bill Clinton impression.

    An LA native, Gleib is a unique voice in comedy, known for a wide range of material, and quick improvisational skills. A versatile performer, he recently shot five other pilots, including a pilot for FOX called "Naked But Funny,” "WTF?” for GSN, a BET improv comedy show called “Get It In” on which he was the only white cast member, and “CQC” a comedic news show where he got to mess with with Barack Obama, Bill & Hillary Clinton, and ruined a John McCain press conference, getting kicked out by the secret service. Gleib can also can be seen in a supporting role in the feature film, “Bar Starz” a comedy with Charlie Murphy that can be seen on Netflix.

    A workaholic, he has also hosted several pods for CURRENT TV, hosted a webseries called “COUCH CRASHERS” for Playboy’s non-adult division, wrote a monthly column for “Saturday Night Magazine,” and appeared as a guest on FOX REALITY CHANNEL’s REALITY REMIX , TV GUIDE CHANNEL’s REALITY CHAT, and No Good TV’s Up Close with Carrie Keegan(ngtv.com).

    He used to write for Collegehumor.com – one of the most popular sites on the internet, and was the voice of Dirk Melvin on the animated series “THE MELVIN BROS.” on gopotato.tv (and youtube.) Gleib is consistently in the Top 10 on the syndicated radio show “Comedy Countdown” (also on XM,) and is a regular on SIRIUS SATELLITE RADIO. In addition, he has written the RADIO MUSIC AWARDS for ABC ABC-logo.jpg, and hosted a pilot for E! called CASUAL FRIDAYS.

    He has performed in the Vancouver Comedy Festival, the Laughing Matters Festival in the Netherlands, and was selected “Best of the Fest” at the Just For Laughs Chicago Comedy Festival. He has also performed with The Satiristas, alongside Janeane Garofalo, and Henry Rollins.

    In 2006 he released his first comedy album, titled “NOT AVAILABLE IN STORES.” His second album is due out soon. As soon as he can decide on a title.

    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.

    J Chris Newberg

    J Chris Newberg is funny. Ask him. He will disagree, but in a way that is probably humorous. He has performed on America’s Got Talent, but lost to dancers that sparkle. He has also been on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live & Comedy Central. He has toured nationally in arenas with Dane Cook, Internationally in Stadiums with Russell Peters and written songs for American Idol. He is in fact the funniest person that you have never heard of. Yet. Cedric The Entertainer agrees saying, “He has got an odd sense of humor and he is unique in his point of view.  His quirkiness and his own kind of demeanor are things that can go a long way in this business.  Talented folks will see it, and the industry will see it.” J Chris Newberg also writes jokes, a lot of them. Some of your favorite comedians have used his jokes on SNL, Late Night With David Letterman, Chelsea Lately and The Conan O’Brien show. J Chris Newberg recently finished being lead writer on Idiotest for GSN and is currently writing at E! He doesn’t ask you to think. He’ll do that for you. Just watch and listen and then tweet your friends and pretend you wrote it. TheChrisArmy.com @thechrisarm
