Dominick Pupa is an NYC-based comedian and host who has appeared on stages across the US and UK for two decades. For more than 10 years, Dominick was a go-to audience warmup comic in New York on more than a dozen TV shows including The View, Tyra Banks, Ricki Lake, and Live with Regis & Kelly.
Dominick made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2013 as the host of the Lucie Awards, and has hosted events for organizations and charities nationwide, including the American Cancer Society, LGBT network Dot429, LA-based children's charity 826la, MSquared: Musicians Against Multiple Sclerosis and most recently, the Anti-Inaugural Ball.
In addition to club work, Dominick performs a series of all-new one-man shows every year. The Duplex and The Triad have been favorite spots for many years, and for the past 4 years, several of the shows have taken place in front of sold out crowds at the world renowned Cutting Room.
An internationally recognized Cher addict, Dominick premiered his one-man play, "Gypsies, Tramps & Me," to acclaim in 2015. In the Spring of 2016, he counted down to Cher's 70th birthday with the internet series #70DaysOfCher, which he capped off with the celebratory spectacle, "Cherstruck," in both NY & Los Angeles.
Last year, Dominick found unexpected viral fame for a poem he wrote after the OrlandoPulse tragedy. "Don't Tell Gay People How To Mourn" has been shared hundreds of thousands of times, and has been seen by an estimated 4 million people after being published by BuzzFeed and BET.com, and retweeted by celebrities such as Kathy Griffin and Bianca Del Rio.
Dominick lives in Manhattan with his husband and their bulldog, Gravy, who was named as such so Dominick would remember to feed him.
