It wasn’t long ago that Solomon Georgio burst out of the Seattle comedy scene with his own brand of irreverence, but he has certainly made an impression. He flawlessly intertwines biting social commentary with stories of his life as an openly gay African immigrant. Solomon was a finalist on NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity showcase and has been a regular performer at several festivals, including Seattle’s Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, and Portland’s Bridgetown Comedy Festival.
In 2014, Solomon made his television debut as the featured comedian on Conan and has since appeared on Comedy Central’s This is Not Happening, Viceland’s Flophouse, and Comedy Central’s The Meltdown. He recently filmed his half-hour standup special for Comedy Central.
Solomon has worked as a writer on Spongebob Squarepants and just wrapped up work as a staff writer on TruTv’s Adam Ruins Everything.
“You can expect plenty snappy comments on race and sexual orientation from Solomon, who keeps it both real and funny at the same time.”
