Comedian and South Florida native Greg Hahn had a pretty normal childhood.
Catholic school led to Rollins College in Central Florida where he was on the basketball team. “I had a sweet spot on the bench,” he says.
After graduation, he got a good-paying job with Lockheed. It was while there he became interested in stand-up. “Why make $200 a day when I can be a comedian and make that in a week?” he says.
Unfortunately, the Orlando area wasn’t a hotbed of comedy at the time, so Hahn found other comedy-adjacent work including a job in a stunt show at Universal Studios. “I was also emcee of the lumberjack show,” he adds.
He eventually wound up doing stand-up full-time and today is a much sought-after comedian for corporate and private events.
A regular on the Bob & Tom radio show, appearing at Go Bananas gives him a chance to let loose a little.
