The Immediate Gratification Players of Harvard College have named Jeff Garlin their Immediate Gratification Player of the Year. Jeff will accept the award at Harvard on Saturday, March 6, 2010 at 11:30 p.m.
On March 6, Jeff will come to Harvard for an Immediate Gratification Player of the Year award ceremony. Jeff will become an honorary member of IGP by receiving his very own signature red-and-yellow necktie, for which the group is known. He will also perform a guest monologue at an improvised comedy show performed by IGP.
The Immediate Gratification Player of the Year award is given as often as The Immediate Gratification Players wish to give it, sometimes several times a year, sometimes not at all. Jeff Garlin is IGP’s first honoree. The award recognizes comedians who have a background in improvisational theater and who The Immediate Gratification Players deem to be hilarious. It is a recognition both of the honoree’s comedic ability and appeal to college students like those at Harvard University.
Jeff Garlin is best known as Jeff Greene on HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm. His directorial debut, I Want Someone To Eat Cheese With, premiered in September 2007.
