A decade into his stand-up career, Steve moved from Minneapolis to LA, recently made an appearance on Conan, and released his critically-acclaimed first album, “Stever Fever”. Prior to that, this gentleman degenerate spent most of his life traveling the country, regaling audiences with his delightful self-destruction. Gillespie’s act is a slap-happy balance of aggression and absurdity, coupled with a delightfully pushy persona and coarse yet effective word choice. His hilarious self-flagellation has also earned him spots on Fox’s “Laughs” as well as the Bridgetown Comedy Festival and the Boston Comedy Festival. His debut album “Stever Fever” was named a top-10 comedy album of the year by ComedyReviews.com.
A philosophy and political science major in college, Robert uses his razor sharp wit to cut through the most dense political and hot button issues of the day. His trademark brand of smart humor has made him one of the fastest-rising comedians in the Twin Cities, and garnered him his own radio show on AM 950, “Laughing Matters with Robert Baril”, every Sunday. Additionally, Baril also draws on his experiences as a substitute teacher for his scathing material on the educational system, children, and society at large. For audiences who prefer comedy that cuts to the funny bone as opposed to tickling it, Robert is not to be missed.
