People often refer to Jeffrey Gurian as a “Renaissance Man”, not because that’s when he was born, but because he’s involved in so many things. He’s a comedy writer, performer, director, author, producer, doctor and Healer, and not always in that order.
He’s worked with and befriended many big stars and comedy legends, like Rodney Dangerfield, Joan Rivers, George Wallace, Phil Hartman, Richard Belzer, Jerry Lewis, and Andrew “Dice” Clay, among many others. Jeffrey has performed stand-up at most of the big clubs in NY and L.A. and was featured several times on Comedy Central’s hit Kroll Show with Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Amy Poehler, Seth Rogen, Laura Dern and Katy Perry.
He was the first to be pranked with Too Much Tuna in the viral “Too Much Tuna” sketch and was also a regular on-air personality on Sirius XM’s Bennington Show, (formerly Ron and Fez), where he also brought on special guests/friends like Russell Peters, Trevor Noah, Colin Quinn, Artie Lange, Susie Essman, D.L. Hughley, and Lisa Lampanelli. He writes a weekly column covering the comedy scene for The Interrobang called “Jumping Around With Jeffrey Gurian”, and has also written for MTV, National Lampoon, Weekly World News and many Friars Roasts.
In 1999 he launched Comedy Matters, a celeb-based online entertainment column that has evolved into Comedy Matters TV, an internet TV channel with over 500 A-list celebrity interviews and closing in on two million views. He’s produced shows starring Kevin Hart and Susie Essman, and according to Paul Provenza, and Nick Kroll is known by everyone in comedy.
This is his fourth book, the other three being “Filthy, Funny, and Totally Offensive” a book from Kensington Press based on his many years of writing for the famed Friars Roasts packed with nasty jokes from over 250 celebs, Make ‘Em Laugh, and “Laughing Legends” from Skyhorse Publishing, with an intro by Chris Rock featuring interviews with Jerry Seinfeld, Billy Crystal, Ray Romano, Gilbert Gottfried, Colin Quinn, Jeffrey Ross and so many more!
His fifth book, “Healing Your Heart, By Changing Your Mind – A Spiritual and Humorous Approach To Achieving Happiness” recently attained Best Seller status on Amazon.
Jeffrey is also a doctor, a past Professor at NYU in the Oral Medicine/Oro-Facial Pain Department, and is on the Board of The Assoc. For Spirituality and Psychotherapy since 1999, plus he developed a cure for Stuttering which he used to cure himself of a severe stutter!
He was honored to have been given his own column in the legendary Weekly World News called “Gurian’s World of the Bizarre”. That led to the creation of GNN (Gurian News Network) which brings you the most unusual stories in The Universe, missed by mainstream media. He claims to have not slept in many years in order to bring these stories to light! GNN is definitely your source for “All The News That’s Fit To Dance To,” … hence Man Robs Bank With His Chin! Enjoy!!!
