We’ve double-checked, and it’s confirmed Greg Burmeister is the first guest we’ve had whose college experience included a 4-day coma.
The man is a party machine (although that is NOT what led to his coma!) and his college experience was less of the campus life, and more of the rock & roll life. Greg played in bands throughout college (Cue The Doves & Galaxy Queen), then he managed bands, and generally tore up Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the surrounding area during his time at Minnesota’s University of Northwestern. He also is the first College Stories guest with a story that involves brass knuckles, the cops, and yelling about how much he loves jail!
We asked Greg a question he gets a lot: “What do you do?” and while he isn’t quite sure, we know that besides being a rock & roll guitarist, he’s also been an actor (Broad City), TV personality (truTV), and worked in TV production (Celebrity Apprentice & The Late Show). He also hosted a public access show called Beatboxing With Greg where he straight up just beatboxed AT a guest for a half hour. Incredible stuff.
