Actor, impressionist, voice actor, broadcaster and singer, Gary was trained at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. But he began his training early on.
“I was born and raised in Brooklyn. I was singing with a band on stage at my grandfather’s restaurant, Moskowitz and Lupowitz when I was five. It was a celebrity hangout in New York from the 40's through the 60's. I guess I was bitten by the show biz bug seeing the famous up close. I also grew up in a neighborhood in Flatbush so diverse that it exposed me to a multitude of accents and dialects.”
Mr. Craig drew on those learning experiences in his acting roles and broadcast career that brought him to Miami, Arizona, Boston, North Carolina and Connecticut.
“I grew up around a lot of neighborhood wise guys in Brooklyn, so it was a special treat for me to portray one in the Mister Softee episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm".
In addition to acting in television and film, Gary has released 6 comedy albums of Crank Calls which are featured on the internet and heard on syndicated shows all over the country. Mr. Craig is also President and Founder of We Are The Children, a non-profit organization that stages the biggest party in America every Christmas for poor, homeless and hanicapped kids.
