Comedian Gid Pool delights in bringing his opinionated and hilarious look at the world to the stage. He has appeared in country clubs, comedy venues and corporate events from Vancouver to Miami as well as countless foreign countries. He shares the strange and quirky things that happen in his every-day world and his unique views are often irreverent, may sometimes be misguided, but are always funny. Gid is a winner at the Branson Comedy Festival and the California Comedy Conference. He has also performed at the Edinburgh "Fringe" Festival, the largest comedy festival in the world. Saying a person is "one of a kind" is an often used phrase that usually doesn't mean much. In describing Gid as "one of a kind" however, it is spot on. Gid's comedy is all about the audience, about taking them on a journey that incorporates every thing from their past to present and even their future. He's been called the one of the most innovated and refreshing comedians in America. To be a part of Gid's show is an experience you can not get anywhere else. As one crowd member said, "I thought you were talking about my childhood. It was as if you were there. I couldn't stop laughing."
Gid left a career in real estate to become a stand up comedian and keynote speaker at the age of sixty-one. Why? Because that was his dream! His message is simple and to the point. Baby Boomers have a problem. It is estimated by the US Government that each day more than 7,918 Baby Boomers turn sixty! That's 2,890,070 people per year, the majority of whom plan to work well into their previously thought of "retirement years." What they are discovering is what awaits them are possibly 20 plus years of emptiness. They have no plan once they stop working. They have no reason to look forward to tomorrow. They were busy living life. The blank future confronts them because they have lost that dream they had as a young person. They have forgotten that idea or ideas that motivated them. Gid understands what that feels like, how a sense of dread can overcome someone who is suddenly faced with the unknown. He's been there! More importantly, Gid knows how they can make those years exciting...even spectacular!
When Jane Pauley interviewed Gid for a segment on the Today Show she said of him, 'He could be the Pied Piper of the Baby Boomer generation." She also wrote about him in her book, "Life Reimagined," as have two other authors. She then invited him to appear at the AARP National Convention in New Orleans and talk about his story.
