Recorded live at The Wilbur in Boston, Gulman takes on the absurd realities of living in a financial crisis with his second live stand-up special, giving the kind of recession-busting tips you just won’t get from the Wall Street Journal and pep talks to the mere millionaires among us who can't hold their heads high next to Bill Gates. In This Economy? also takes on much of the same material from his previous album No Can Defend with some additional content, and is a must for the diehard Gulman fan.
At the young age of 6, Gulman always loved late night television and dreamed of being a guest one day. That dream was realized as he has appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman, The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Craig Kilborn, and Last Call with Carson Daly. He’s been featured on Comedy Central’s Premium Blend as well as his own one-hour special, Gary Gulman: Boyish Man, along with appearances on Comics Unleashed with Byron Allen, Jimmy Kimmel Live, HBO's 'Dane Cook's Tourgasm,' Last Comic Standing Seasons 2 and 3 (where Gulman was a runner-up), and was a guest star on Last Comic Standing Season 4.
Gulman also performed at the NASCAR Year End Banquet, New York Comedy Festival, HBO's Las Vegas Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs Montreal International Comedy Festival and Just For Laughs Gala in Canada. He was the host of New England Sports Network's Comedy All Stars and New England Emmy Awards and appeared on National Lampoon's Rising Stars DVD.
In This Economy? originally aired in December of 2012 on Comedy Central and received high praise from many critics. Gulman’s take on everything from Blockbuster Video to the Karate Kid certainly solidified his comedic presence on the national level.
“I love Netflix – chief reason of all: they brought Blockbuster to its knees. Rot in hell, Blockbuster! Rot in hell! Rot in hell with your outrageous late fees, surly sales staff and criminally loose definition of ‘new releases’,” Gulman quips. “Why is this in new releases? Because it’s color? It’s Braveheart goddammit! We didn’t even know Mel Gibson hated Jews when this came out!”
Gulman has performed at over 100 colleges including: Yale, Harvard, Boston College, Tulane, Villanova, Boston University, NYU, UCLA, Ohio State, Texas Christian University, Brandeis and MIT. His last album No Can Defend from Comedy Central Records debuted at #18 on iTunes.
