Hi! I’m Gary Pascal. I’m an actor, writer, comedian, and hat based in Chicago, Illinois.

As a writer, I’m a frequent contributor to The Paper Machete, The Second City Network, and I’m the co-creator of the new podcast Murdertown.

As an actor, I’ve appeared in print and online campaigns for Slim Jim, McDonald’s, and Groupon. I also produce the sketch video showcase Backyard Smackdown with the Shithole, recently named “the new school of Chicago comedy” by the Chicago Reader.

As a comedian, I’m a graduate of the Second City Training Center HouseCo program, I perform improv at the iO Theatre with my house team Gideon, and I was a Season 10 and Season 17 finalist at the Playground Theatre’s Give Me Five solo showcase.

As a hat, I provide a breathable, lightweight, and fashionable look that can be dressed up for cocktail hour or dressed down for an afternoon on the lake. Now available in white, off-white, and sunburnt red.
