A decade into his standup career, Steve Gillespie moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically acclaimed second album, Alive on State, which reached #1 on the iTunes Charts. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction. Gillespie's act is a slaphappy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation and blistering social commentary has also earned him spots on Seeso's Guest List, Ali Asif's Inside Joke and Fox's Laughs He's performed at the prestigious Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. He was a finalist in CMT's Next Big Comic, a runner up for Best of the Midwest at Gilda’s Laughfest, and his debut album Stever Fever from Rooftop Comedy was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.
