A shameless lifelong performer, Gary will drop his pants for food… or just because. He spent his childhood as the class clown and eventually ended up working in Congress for six years (not all that much different) before deciding to do something more productive than politics and become an actor.
Gary can most recently be seen as recurring guest star attorney Herbert Talbott on Blue Bloods and as Ethan Hawke's doctor in Paul Schrader’s Oscar-nominated film First Reformed. Other noteworthy turns have included: Law & Order, House of Cards, Billions, Friends from College, Manifest, Jessica Jones, The Bourne Legacy, a recurring role on the Nicktoons live action show Alien Dawn, and an appearance as the featured dancing businessman in the Saturday Night Live music video “Boombox.” Among his non TV/film roles, he has hosted The Onion’s mock debate show “In The Know,” performed in a stage reading with Oscar nominee Shoreh Aghdashloo, and had the privilege of being chosen to perform sketch comedy in NBC's annual Diversity Showcase. When not acting or offending audiences with some stand-up, he writes and performs sketch comedy with his PIT house team "Savage" and co-produces sketch comedy videos for his YouTube channel Cringe Factory including writing and performing in his multi-million view web sensation "Panhandler Party.” His work has been shared by numerous outlets including: Time Magazine, ABC News, The Hollywood Reporter, College Humor, Funny or Die, BroBible, Ad Week, Entertainment Weekly, Huffington Post, Gawker, CNET, The Daily Beast, Mashable, Mental Floss, The Chive, 22 Words, LaughSpin, Decider, Above Average, Laughing Squid, Gothamist, and many others.

He has also emceed major events for Microsoft, Wyndham, Zip Car, and Showtime's Nurse Jackie “Rx Games.” Gary has trained theatrically with Carol Fox Prescott, studied on-camera with Bob Krakower (master class), and studied improv under Groundlings founder Gary Austin and Upright Citizens Brigade with Chris Gethard and Charlie Todd.
