Geoff Tate BIO:
When college doesn’t appeal to you, you can’t find a good job, and you have a hard time passing drug tests, you’re really only left with one career option, stand-up comedy. Geoff Tate discovered this life path only a few short years ago but is already making it work for him. He toured the country as part of the Comedy Central Live Presents' Mike Birbiglia's Secret Public Journal Live, he appeared at The Aspen Rooftop Comedy Festival, he's been on The Bob and Tom Show several times and appeared on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham.
