Greg Barris
Greg Barris
Greg Barris is a staple in New York’s downtown stand-up scene and is the creator of Heart Of Darkness: a psychedelic showcase of comedy, live music and fringe scientists that has been a frequent Time Out New York critic’s pick, much loved by BrooklynVegan and hailed as ‘Excellent’ by The New Yorker. Comedians who have appeared on Heart of Darkness include Reggie Watts, Fred Armisen, Janeane Garofalo and Jim Gaffigan.

In Fall 2012, Barris announced the release of his debut comedy album SHAME WAVE. Recorded in the spring in NYC, SHAME WAVE features Barris, whom PAPER describes as “the perfect combination of very good looking, hilarious and super-weird,” at his charasmatic best. aspecialthing Records will release SHAME WAVE on October 9th.

In addition to curating and performing every sold out Heart of Darkness live show, Barris’ boundless talent and energy is also showcased on his pop fantasy comedy album as the Wigmaker’s Son. Wigmaker’s Son ‘Greatest Tits’ lp is the wholly original Zappa-meets-Lonely-Island creation from Barris and guitarist / visual artist Dima Drjuchin (Corrupt Autopilot) who leads The Forgiveness band at every Heart of Darkness show. The album, out Spring 2012 and featuring songs from Heart of Darkness, takes listeners on a magic carpet ride through time waves, anoints Tom Selleck as a baby saving mustachioed saint, makes things better, puts the reptilian army on notice and forgives all your sins.

The well-rounded Barris’ comedic shorts have been featured on Funny or Die, College Humor and Jay Leno’s Laugh Squad to name a few. He has been a commentator on MTV's All That Rocks and MTV's Warren The Ape.

“Greg Barris is the kind of man who believes the Universe tilts toward Justice AND that a quote from me means something. What a dear sweet fool.” – Janeane Garofalo

“Greg Barris takes his audiences to places they’ve never been before, inside the heart of a man who cares so much, you can taste his pain. Then he turns you around and covers you with his joy, just like in one of those sex movies, only its standup comedy.” – Rory Scovel

“Greg Barris strong and make people happy with charm powers. He good friend and tell good jokes. One time he help me kill hunger with pizza. His comedy best because him say stories that mostly true. Him like girls as much as I do and that make for fun talks. Because of Greg New York and LA is better place.” -Reggie Watts
