Wrestling's Funniest Man, Greg Warren (InterMat Q&A)
One-on-One with Greg Warren
Andrew Hipps, Senior Writer
Greg Warren is wrestling's funniest man. The St. Louis, Missouri native wrestled collegiately at the University of Missouri, where he was an All-American in 1991 at 158 pounds for the Tigers. He eventually became a full-time comedian in 2001.
Greg Warren recently had his own half-hour special on Comedy Central, which debuted in March. He has had numerous TV and festival appearances. Warren can be seen on networks such as BET (as a finalist on Coming to the Stage) and Country Music Television's Comedy Stage. He has also developed a following from his work on the nationally syndicated Bob and Tom radio show, which led him to tour theaters across the country with the Bob and Tom Comedy All-Star Tour. He is also a regular guest on CBS' The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and was a semi-finalist on NBC's Last Comic Standing.
InterMat recently caught up with Warren and talked to him about his CD that is scheduled to be released next week, where he got his start as a comedian, and some of his most memorable experiences. Warren also reflects on his college wrestling career at Missouri, including his battles with the likes of Tim Krieger and Pat Smith.

NOTE: It's a freewheeling interview. Greg Warren uses some of George Carlin's "Seven Dirty Words." I'm not a prude, but... if you are, you might want to skip this.
