Gary Gulman makes his Appell Center debut in an evening of stand-up, supporting his new book, Misfit: Growing Up Awkward in the ’80s! Over 25 years in comedy, Gulman has established himself as the comedian’s comedian, a remarkable performer and a peerless writer. It’s no wonder the New York Times wrote, “Gary is finally being recognized as one of the country’s strongest comedians.”  

A product of Boston, Gulman has been a scholarship college football player, an accountant and a high school teacher. He has made countless television appearances as both a comedian and an actor, and is one of only a handful of comedians to perform on every single late-night comedy program. 


Gary Gulman has made four masterful TV specials including his most recent universally acclaimed stand-up special for HBO, The Great Depresh, a tour de force look at mental illness, which is equal parts hilarious and inspiring. In 2019, he appeared in the international blockbuster Joker. He can most recently be seen co-starring with Amy Schumer in the hit Hulu comedy series Life & Beth. 

Gary’s first book published by Flatiron Books is titled Misfit: Growing Up Awkward in the ’80s, a memoir based on his life from Kindergarten through twelfth grade. It was released in September of 2023. Amy Schumer called the book “laugh out loud funny and heartfelt,” and MacArthur Fellowship recipient Adrian Nicole LeBlanc found it “exquisite, love-affirming and generous.”  

Today, Gulman is one of the most popular touring comics, selling out theaters around the country including the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City. His Misfit Book Tour will feature material based on the book, but will not be a repeat of the book.  

Gulman lives in Harlem with his wife.
