A couple of weeks ago I had the fortune of hosting three nights of stand-up comedy at The Hideout in Chicago. Headliners included Hannibal Buress (SNL, 30 Rock), Todd Barry (Letterman, The Wrestler) and Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show). Hometown heroes featured were Cameron Esposito, Dan Telfer, and the enigma that is Gabriel Wallace.
Very little is known about Gabriel.
He does comedy, but isn’t a fixture of the local stand-up or improv scenes.
Perhaps you’ve seen him at The Pitchfork Festival, introducing bands without a wristband to the frustration of the festival organizers.
When asked if he had a website, Gabriel replied, “Amazon.com”.
There are no images of Gabriel online, so I drew one.
Tonight Gabriel opens for Cass McCombs at Lincoln Hall.
