Gary Lee Mahmoud

A shameless lifelong performer, Gary can most recently be seen in a recurring guest star role on Blue Bloods. He also recently performed in Law & Order, House of Cards, Billions, and Jessica Jones and was a series regular on the Nicktoons live action show Alien Dawn. Among his other noteworthy turns, he has hosted The Onion’s mock debate show “In The Know,” had a small principal role in The Bourne Legacy, appeared as the featured dancing businessman in the Saturday Night Live music video “Boombox,” and had the privilege of performing in a staged reading with Oscar nominee Shoreh Aghdashloo. Just last year, he was delighted to be chosen to perform sketch comedy in NBC’s annual Diversity Showcase. When not acting or offending audiences with some stand-up, he co-produces sketch comedy videos for his YouTube channel Cringe Factory including writing and performing in his multi-million view web sensation “Panhandler Party.”

Gary has also performed in national commercials for The NFL, Star Wars, USA Today, Beneful, Experian, and Kinect and emceed major events for Microsoft, Wyndham, Zip Car, and Showtime’s Nurse Jackie “Rx Games.” Before moving to NYC in 2007 to pursue his passion as a full-time entertainer, Gary spent six years in working in politics on Capitol Hill (not all that much different).
