Solomon Georgio began as a standup on the Seattle comedy scene and quickly developed his own brand of irreverence. 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. Solomon made his television debut as a 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. This year he was selected to film his first televised special for Comedy Central’s COMEDY CENTRAL STAND-UP PRESENTS…, and recorded his first album with Comedy Central at Mississippi Studios in Portland.
As a writer, he has contributed to SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS and just wrapped up his first season as a staff writer on TruTv’s ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING. As an actor, Solomon will soon be appearing in the upcoming IFC series BALL OR NOTHING, the Comedy Central web series WHITE FLIGHT, and TruTV’s ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING.
