After his years at Letterman, Gabe relocated to the West Coast with his family, where he worked as staff writer at various network late night shows, including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (NBC), “The Late, Late Show with Craig Kilborn” (CBS), “Lopez Tonight” (TBS), “Pop Up Video” (VH1), in addition to having served as the producer / head writer for “The New Tom Green Show” (MTV).
As if Gabe wasn’t already enough of a Renaissance Man, for years now, he has been developing his highly-intuitive skills to become one of America’s top mentalists and mind-readers, making Gabe’s act one of the most powerful and unique pieces of theater you will ever see!
