Setflix comes to the Pack Theater! Setflix is a stand-up competition, where each comic has to come up with a 5 minute movie pitch based on a ridiculous YouTube video!
The best comedians pitch the worst movies!
Produced by Jack Herrguth (Comedy Central/ Jash/ Nerdist), Eve Esquire (WeirDoe Playhouse) and Gil Baron (Comic Relief)
Gil Baron is a native Angelino. He was the Producer and Head Writer of the monthly late night, live show It’s Past My Bedtime with Topher Harless, which ran for over two years. In 2015 he wrote for the CBS Diversity Showcase and was hand picked to produce The Upright Citizen’s Brigade’s inaugural Digital Lab Webseries, Mother Mary. He also currently produces The 88 Show at the Hollywood Improv and writes for The National Lampoon’s Final Edition Podcast.
He began his career working for Comic Relief, the legendary comedy telethon founded by Bob Zmuda. After Comic Relief, Gil went on to work in development at Comedy Central and Dreamworks. He produced the award winning sketch group, Monster Party as well as the acclaimed The Goddamn Comedy Jam, now on Comedy Central.
At The Pack, he produces Your TPT Late Night Show tonight and directs whenever he is called upon to do so, like he did for The Night Cap with Stacy Rumaker and The Chopping Block.
He is very proud of his accomplishments, but sometimes he worries that he’s already met the One and messed it up by using the wrong ‘your.’
