Greg Berman is a Minneapolis performer who’s been entertaining people since childhood.

Then, Greg quickly became the top public speaker in the nation for Speech/Forensics in high school having won the first place at the national tournament in humorous/dramatic interpretation of a literary work. Having recently finished college, Greg has been holding his own in the highly competitve Twin Cities standup comedy scene, gracing all of the major stages while also delving into the world of acting. Amidst various commercial appearances and music video roles, Greg recently landed the lead role in a Midwest Independent thriller titled “Red Ice”, set to release in early 2015. But this has not distracted him from stand- up comedy as he has opened for the likes of Josh Blue, Jackie Kashian, Barry Rothbart and many other notable acts, and was a two time semi-finalist of the Twin Cities Funniest Person contest. His incredibly personable, energetic, and fast paced humor keeps the audience guessing from the moment he hits the stage, while his commanding stage presence makes it impossible to look away.
