In this episode of "Kahnversations," we interview Monty Geer.
Monty Geer, known as "Cole" on MTV’s AWKWARD and as the guy always late to class at Lesly Kahn, has been making comedies since he was 8 years old living in the woods of Washington state. When he was 16, he moved to NYC to study at the New York Film Academy and New York University. While in New York, Monty competed in national stand-up competitions on TBS, won national sketch competitions and sold his own scripted series to MSN. Monty’s comedy got recognized, he wrote monologue jokes for over 60 episodes of LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON, articles on COLLEGE HUMOR, sketches for FUNNY OR DIE, and jokes on two COMEDY CENTRAL ROASTS.
That’s when Monty moved to LA and was cast in MTV’s #1 scripted and critically acclaimed series, AWKWARD. His character “Cole” was a fan favorite and the series was nominated for 3 People Choice Awards, winning one, along with winning a Teen Choice Award for Best Comedy. Monty continued his success with TruTV’s ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING and Lifetime’s MOMMY I DIDN’T DO IT.
He is currently gearing up for a national college tour with RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad) and MJ Dougherty (Best Selling author). It's called the ROLLER COASTER TOUR and they are giving inspirational speeches in front of colleges about how even if you “make it" life is still a roller coaster and you will always have ups and downs. The tour will begin in 2019 and is being pushed by the same publicity team that handles the Academy Awards. For showtimes and dates, you can check out his Instagram: @MontyGeer.
