Gil is a super weird dude.

Gil is known for his hilarious and committed characters that walk out of very absurd worlds. His physicality gives all of his characters a strange clownish vibe in a way that is completely fascinating and captivating on stage. Amazingly, Gil Ozeri takes notes harder than anyone in the history of NYC improv, despite his penchant for playing fantastical, fast paced characters. This is probably the reason he is so good at them.

Ability to Worry

In the society of famously anxiety-ridden comedians, Gil somehow stands above in his ability to see doom. He was on the UCBT Harold team fwand, a universally loved and respected team. That did not stop Gil from worrying out loud that his team would be broken up or would not make it much longer. The continued being awesome until they were broken up.
