Louie Pearlman has been an innovator and a maverick of the New York City comedy and arts scene since 2002.

During his comedic career he's taught comedy, public speaking and team building across the continent with students of all ages. In the past he's been a brainstormer, inventing new products for branding company Brand Now! and currently Louie is a Program Coordinator for the non-profit Creative Aging organization Lifetime Arts, where he supervises educational programming and trains teaching artists and administrators in the exciting and growing field of Creative Aging.

For ten years Louie has been a producer, director, performer and teaching artist with the nationally recognized arts education company Story Pirates, where he's performed nationally in theaters, music festivals and schools. He's also the co-host of the music/comedy/pop culture podcasts Kick the Jukebox & XOXO Riverdale and a freelance writer for Rebeat Magazine and Tough Pigs.

Earlier on in his creative life, he jump-started the careers of Ezra Miller (Justice League) and Griffin Newman (The Tick) as the Artistic Director of the Comedy program at Buck's Rock Creative and Performing Arts Camp. They're both playing superheroes in movies and TV shows now, so that's pretty cool.
