Solomon Georgio

Host of Season 1 of Lost Notes, Solomon Georgio is a comedian, writer and Grace Jones fanatic.

He began as a standup on the Seattle comedy scene and quickly developed his own brand of irreverence. On stage Solomon flawlessly intertwines biting social commentary with stories of his life as an openly gay African immigrant.  

Solomon believes Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, The Black Album, London Calling and Thriller are perfect records. The greatest concert experience of his life was seeing Grace Jones finish off a show by hula-hooping in high heels to “Slave to the Rhythm”.

Last year he was selected to film his first televised special for Comedy Central’s COMEDY CENTRAL STAND-UP PRESENTS…, and recorded his first album with Comedy Central at Mississippi Studios in Portland.

As a writer, he has contributed TruTv’s Adam Ruins Everything and will begin working on HBO’s Crashing in the Spring of 2018. He is also featured on Comedy Central’s Drunk History.
