"ESPECIALLY FUNNY... Brave, welcoming and playfully conspiratorial, but tinged with an undercurrent of danger."-The New York Times
"Walloch delivers with bite and without bombast."-The New Yorker
"A hilariously self mocking queer on crutches!"-The Village Voice
Bodies of Work and Victory Garden Theater CRIP SLAM present An Evening With Greg Walloch
In the vein of Spalding Gray, Sandra Bernhard and David Sedaris, Greg Walloch's show consists of semi-autobiographical life and times monologues. Stripped down and unplugged, Greg shares new stories intertwined with greatest hits from his original acclaimed solo work White Disabled Talent.
Greg's style is characterized by humor, poignancy, and sexuality, and his acclaimed solo show has toured the world. He has appeared on everything from The Howard Stern Show to Kurt Andersen's Studio 360 on Public Radio International. The concert film F**K The Disabled stars Greg with a cast that includes Stephen Baldwin, Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara. Currently, Greg is performing with The Moth in USA Network's Characters Unite national tour.
