Greer Barnes

A Bronx native, Greer Barnes is one of the most talented performers in the New York comedy scene. Upon turning thirteen, Greer received his Bar Mitzvah, thanks to his upbringing with his mother and Jewish stepdad. Greer was a high school baseball star, scouted by the San Francisco Giants, until he suffered a career-ending injury as an 18 year old. Following this injury, he pursued his backup dream as a stand up comedian. Greer has succeeded, piling up television credits, including Chappelle’s Show, The Late Show with David Letterman, Last Call with Carson Daly, Comedy Central’s Premium Blend, and In Living Color. In 2009, he landed a half-hour Comedy Central Presents special. Recently, Greer merged his passion for baseball and performance when he appeared in For The Love of the Game, a successful sports film starring Kevin Costner. Greer has also appeared in commercials for both the NFL and the NBA. Based in New York, Greer is a regular at Stand Up NY.
