Julian turned to comedy soon after discovering his double major in Political Science and Theology was an astounding waste of time. As a big proponent of unpaid work, Julian was a production and stand-up comedy intern at The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien and a writers’ research intern at Saturday Night Live, where he learned how to be cool around celebrities while holding coffee.
He currently hosts a monthly stand-up show, Comedy at the Grocery, at Arlene's Grocery in New York City, and co-founded the Brooklyn Comedy Festival. He is a contributor to SNL's Weekend Update and was selected as part of NBC's 2013 Late Night Writers Workshop and its 2014-2015 Writers on the Verge program. Aside from performing and writing, Julian’s favorite pastimes include paying rent, making deadlines, and being cool around celebrities while holding coffee.
