Julian McCullough is an American actor, writer and comedian, residing in Los Angeles. He has performed on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, who he has been supporting on tour, NPR’s This American Life and hosted three stand alone specials for VH1. Julian is best known for his appearances on Love You, Mean It with Whitney Cummings, Chelsea Lately and MTV’s Guy Code and hosts America’s Very Funny News.
The US comic debuts at this year’s Edinburgh Festival with his show ‘Dream Girls’. Julian offers unparalleled access to his catastrophic love life, combining epic pop songs, deeply insightful commentary and a killer power point presentation. He is a dreamer, but unfortunately love only exists in reality, or as he puts it: “Finding love is easy when it’s mostly in your own head”.
‘Dream Girls’ recounts romantic discoveries of the girls he dated, with bothan embarrassing amount of truth and the slow and devastating (for the people in the story, not the audience) realisation that girls are much more than a combination of Radiohead lyrics and Winnie Cooper from The Wonder Years.
In 2011 he won the New York’s Funniest competition and his Comedy Central Presents stand-up special aired. He has also taken part in the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal.
“His stories are so funny you’ll almost forget they made you cry…He has a way of making a long, funny, heartfelt story feel like it took three minutes. The hour will fly’ IRA GLASS (THIS AMERICAN LIFE)
