George Civeris

George Civeris grew up between two equally iconic cultural meccas: Athens, Greece and Chatham, New Jersey. After graduating high school in Athens, he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area and later to Boston for graduate school, where he found comedy instead. Last year, he won MoveOn.org's nationwide "Laughter Trumps Hate" contest, which was judged by a panel that included Judd Apatow, Adam McKay, and Baratunde Thurston. Since then, he has performed at the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, the Limestone Comedy Festival, the Boston Comedy Festival, the Women in Comedy Festival, and (coming up this fall) the Out of Bounds Comedy Festival. He co-produces a long-running weekly alternative comedy showcase in Boston called the Mendoza Line and performs regularly all over New England and New York. He is moving to Brooklyn in September to pursue his dream of identifying as Brooklyn-based."
