One of the funniest working comedians on the road today, Eddie Gossling's humor is brilliantly original, charming and slightly self-deprecating. He's a force on stage not unlike the big ones he admires: Steve Martin, Richard Pryor and Bob Newhart.

In 1995, Eddie won the HBO Stand-Up Standoff Comic Relief VII competion and in 1997, he won the US Comedy Arts Festival Talent Search competion. Shortly after, he performed at the Chicago Comedy Festival and then
became the first comedian ever to perform at the Montreal Just-For-Laughs Comedy Fest as both a 'New Faces' performer and 'Festival Gala' performer. In addition he has appeared on Comedy Central Presents, ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and the Disney animated feature, "The Wild," Eddie has also been featured on Comedy Central's "shorties watchin shorties," "Premium Blend," "World Comedy Tour" as well as Byron Allen's "Comics Unleashed" and the Bravo and Game Show Network.

Eddie works the clubs like nobody's business and has single-handedly redefined the words 'working comedian.' He's thankful for the many favors he's received thus far in his happy life and is looking forward to paying them back one joke after another.
