THE TITLE, INSPIRED BY GREER’S LOVE OF LISTENING TO RICHARD PRIOR’S ALBUMS GROWING UP, IS A REFERENCE TO BEING ABLE TO PICTURE A COMEDIAN PHYSICALLY ACTING OUT A JOKE JUST BY LISTENING. HE HOPES YOU CAN SEE WHAT HE’S SAYING TOO. 

Revered by audiences and fellow comics alike, Barnes is a regularly featured performer at the Comedy Cellar in the heart of New York City’s Greenwich Village, a club that Greer has made his home over the last 15 years.

Touring wherever comedy takes him, Greer has headlined venues across the US, England, Australia, the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, and South Africa.

Greer has been featured on CBS’ “Late Show with David Letterman”, FOX’s “In Living Color” and Comedy Central’s “Chappelle’s Show”, had a supporting role alongside Kevin Costner in the 1999 film “For the Love of the Game” and most recently appeared on Season 8 of NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.” Dave Attell and Louie CK also subtly mentioned Greer Barnes on FX’s “Louie,” as a comic neither comedian would want to follow, a joking nod at Greer’s prowess as a performer.



GALLAGHER'S "LOOKING FOR INTELLIGENT LIFE" TO BE RELEASED BY COMEDY DYNAMICS

Comedy Dynamics will release the one-and-only Gallagher’s never-before-heard 2003 album “Looking For Intelligent Life” on iTunes, August 29th, 2014.

Gallagher is an American comedian and prop comic, most popularly known for ridiculous insights, giant, whimsical props, and (of course) smashing watermelons. One of the fathers of "prop comedy," Gallagher is probably best known for his signature "Sledge-o-Matic" bit, in which he demolishes watermelons (and other objects) with a sledgehammer at the end of each set. Gallagher has been performing stand-up comedy for over 40 years, remaining wildly popular from the ‘70s through to today.

Looking For Intelligent Life, recorded in 2003, finds the legendary comic on a quest to find intelligent life in a world gone topsy-turvy. His topical goofiness has no bounds as he probes for the truth. Don’t worry, he’s still got his Sledge-O-Matic, and can’t wait to smash.


RICHARD JENI'S CATALOGUE TO BE RELEASED BY COMEDY DYNAMICS 

Comedy Dynamics will release four of the late comedian Richard Jeni’s specials to own on iTunes on August 12th, many of which have never been released to the public. They are “The Beach Crowd,”  “Richard Jeni’s Greatest Bits,” “Platypus Man,” and “A Good Catholic Boy.”      

Known as the "comedian's comedian," Richard Jeni’s 25 year career encompassed thousands of live shows, five award-winning comedy specials for HBO and Showtime, a Command Performance at the White House and semi-regular appearances on The Tonight Show during both Carson’s and Leno’s tenure. He’s been named one of the “100 Greatest Stand-ups of All Time” by Comedy Central, and was voted in by fans to win the American Comedy Award for Best Male Stand-up. Jerry Seinfeld has said, “"I do not know of one comedian who did not think that Richard Jeni was amazing." Chris Rock sums it up this way, “Richard Jeni is one of the best comedians that ever lived”. Jeni also starred in his own TV series, Platypus Man, co-starred as Jim Carrey's best friend in the blockbuster hit, "The Mask,.hosted A&E's "Caroline's Comedy Hour" which won a Cable Ace for Best Stand-up Comedy Show, and the Learning Channel’s "What A World"  garnering a nomination for "Best Magazine Host." In between guest spots on all the major talk shows he appeared as a frequent correspondent for "Entertainment Tonight."

In March 2007, the comedian tragically took his own life. Jeni's death was marked by many tributes, including star-studded memorial shows held for him across the US and Canada.

The Beach Crowd is a collection of unreleased performances from 2002 and 2006 from Jeni’s personal collection. Recorded at the Comedy & Magic Club, it’s got Richard’s trademark quick-change personas, bits on whales, women, pot, and a whirlwind of imaginative improvs and hilarious audience interactions.

Richard Jeni’s Greatest Bits (1997) says it in the name, it’s the compilation of his best material, to the love and appreciation of his fans.

Platypus Man (1992), the hilarious HBO special about the mating habits of the platypus, and of man, was the inspiration for his sitcom of the same name.

A Good Catholic Boy (1997) this highly rated and critically acclaimed HBO special brings the audience to their feet with great riffs on late night infomercials, dating rituals, and more.
