Who Is Jeffrey Gurian and Why Does Everyone in Comedy Know Him!?

Jeffrey Gurian is one of the most well known fixtures in the comedy world. You'll see him in clubs, at most comedy festivals, and at red carpets with a microphone in hand ready to interview his favorite comics. He's not a comedian (although he has performed stand up), and he doesn't work for a major television network. He isn't a super agent, or comedy club owner. Jeffrey isn't a 'power player' in the usual sense of the word. He hosts his interviews for his own self-produced YouTube Channel, Comedy Matters TV. So you might not expect him to be one of the most connected people in the world of comedy, and yet, he is.
