Shortly after arriving to Los Angeles in the 80s, Geech secured a spot on TV’s “Star Search,” (where he beat Ray Romano among others) and went on to set the record for the most appearances by a comedian.
Speaking of records, Geech set another one in August ’93 when he told 676 jokes in one hour to land himself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. Geech went on to make over 75 national TV appearances, including three on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”
While touring the country as the opening act for the legendary “Righteous Brothers” (200 shows in 4 years), he moved to Las Vegas in 1996. Geechy also had appearances on “The Bob & Tom Show”, CBS This Morning,” “Entertainment Tonight,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and “The Late, Late Show” with Craig Ferguson.
Geechy also made it to the quarter finals on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and was named 2011 Comedian of the Year by Las Vegas Weekly magazine.
Hosting the shows are comedians Sean Peabody, Kelly Hilbert and Drew Shafer.
