Upstairs At Goodnights: Gianmarco Soresi

With a BFA in musical theater and a PHD in imagination, he made his television debut on CBS’ Blue Bloods playing Tom Selleck’s waiter, a role he prepared for by actually becoming a waiter for twelve years. Now a nationally touring stand up comedian, Gianmarco is waiting for Jeff Goldblum to get in some kind of trouble so he can portray him on Lifetime.

Gianmarco’s stand up has been featured on Netflix’s Bonding, PBS’ Stories from the Stage, SeeSo’s New York’s Funniest, Real Housewives of New York, NY1, New York LIVE, Vanity Fair, George Takei presents and he was the winner of Amazon’s Comics Watching Comics Season 8. 1st Place at the Laughing Devil Comedy Festival, Devil’s Cup Comedy Festival, Empire State Comedy Festival, and Last Comix Standing at Mohegan Sun, he regularly headlines clubs, colleges and sordid basements around the country.

Gianmarco is a member of the sketch team Uncle Function, which was recently granted a monthly show at the Upright Citizens Brigade that ran for three sold out performances before the entire theater shutdown forever. He’s also the creator of the sketch series Matza Pizza, which lead to Funny or Die greenlighting one of his pitches as an FOD original.
