Guerino is a producer, writer and nationally touring standup comedian based in Chicago. He has been called a “comedian-producer-genius” by Chicago Reader and has opened for comic greats James Adomian, Cameron Esposito, Brad Loekle and Beth Stelling. He hosts most of his own productions where his sardonic charm seamlessly interacts with the crowd and comedians to give each show a fun and cohesive pacing as well as blur the lines between audience member and performer. His ongoing productions include the touring cosplay variety show All Geeks which has a monthly residency at Berlin Nightclub in Chicago, Queer Comedy at Zanies which has brought queer-inclusive comedy to the historic comedy club Zanies for over 4 years and Piss & Vinegar Comedy the alternative, anything-goes stand-up show co-hosted with drag queen Trannika Rex at Berlin Nightclub. He is the creator of Stand Out: The National Queer Comedy Search which partnered with The Advocate Magazine to give queer comedians national exposure, and The Rainbow Connection Queer Comedy Tour which combines gay, lesbian, bi and trans comedians for multiple cross-country tours. He has been featured in comedy clubs all across the country and in Timeout Chicago’s Joke of The Week, The Advocate Magazine, Chicago Tribune, Chicago Reader, The Redeye, Gaper’s Block, Huffington Post and WBEZ Chicago Public Radio.
Guerino has hosted fundraisers from bar-shows to $120 plate dinners including Stars For Hope (with actors from The Daily Show, Iron Man, Star Trek and Glee) and is the creator of the benefit series We Are Halsted which raises funds and awareness for queer homeless youth at popular queer venues, enabling the Chicago community to support all of its parts.
Guerino strives for innovation and authenticity with every story whether told on stage or put together from behind the scenes–creating an all-inclusive community with every show. If you appreciate his art and can take something away from it, he doesn’t consider you a fan but a friend.
