Greg Behrendt is always busy! In 2009, “He’s Just Not That Into”, the movie based on his bestselling book, opened in theaters nationwide and was America’s number one movie. In 2011, Greg headlined an episode of John Oliver’s New York Standup Show, performed stand-up at the Cape Town Comedy Festival in South Africa and began touring his “Starfish Circus” show, a live version of the “Walking The Room” podcast with Dave Anthony. In 2014, Greg worked as a creative consultant for the Oxygen series “My Crazy Love”, and toured all over the world, including a trip back to the Melbourne Comedy Festival in April, which kicked off an 8 week tour of Australia. In 2015 into 2016 he toured clubs all over the country, and returned to festivals such as San Francisco’s Sketchfest, the Moontower Comedy Festival, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, the Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and Montreal’s Just For Laughs Festival. Greg recently appeared on Comedy Central’s @Midnight and This Is Not Happening, taped a pilot for Conaco/TBS, and appeared on Seeso’s The Guest List. Greg continues to tour worldwide, and his new stand up album “Why Are You In Here?” will be coming to Audible in October, and widely released in November.
Greg is the co-author of the three-million-copy bestseller, “He’s Just Not That Into You,” and established himself as a voice of reason and inspiration for all of us negotiating, and sometimes drowning in, the treacherous waters of romantic relationships. Co-authored with “Sex and the City” story editor, Liz Tuccillo, the book became the publishing phenomenon of the year after its release in September 2004. The book shot to the #1 slot on the bestseller lists worldwide, including The New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today. Oprah Winfrey devoted two shows to Behrendt and the book’s simple, but powerful message. Behrendt also made numerous television appearances including NBC’s “Today Show,” “20/20” and “Larry King Live” on CNN. After a fierce bidding war, New Line Cinema acquired the film rights to “He’s Just Not That Into You.” The film was released worldwide on February 6, 2009 with a stellar cast including, Jennifer Aniston, Drew Barrymore, Scarlett Johansson and Ben Affleck and helped propelled the paperback edition of the book back to the top of the best seller lists. Greg and his wife Amiira have published numerous books together. Their latest, “How to Keep Your Marriage From Sucking” is out now, with another book coming in 2019.
