Gregory John Gutfeld is an American television broadcaster, political analyst, comedian, and author who was born on September 12, 1964. He is the host of the late-night comedic talk show Gutfeld!, and he hosted a Saturday night edition of Gutfeld! named The Greg Gutfeld Show from May 2015 to March 2021, when the show was announced to move to weeknights.
Gutfeld is also a co-host and panellist on The Five, a political discussion programme with five co-hosts and panellists. His two programmes are shown on Fox News Channel. Gutfeld hosted the 3 AM series Red Eye, a late-night conversation show that also aired on the Fox News Channel, from 2007 until 2015.
Education and Childhood
Gutfeld is the son of Jacqueline Bernice “Jackie” (née Cauhape) and Alfred Jack Gutfeld, and was born in San Mateo, California. He graduated from Junpero Serra High School and the University of California, Berkeley, with a bachelor’s degree in English in 1987.
Gutfeld noted in a 2009 interview that he began to experience a shift in his political outlook while in college:
Being among liberals made me a conservative while being around conservatives made me a libertarian. You understand that the two factions, the left and the right, have something in common; the worst feature of each of them is moralising.
Gutfeld claimed to have voted by mail in the 2016 presidential election, but voting records found no proof of this. Gutfeld believes he may have missed the official deadline.
Gutfeld and his Russian wife, Elena Moussa, live in New York City as of 2018. He met the photo editor while living in London for three years.
Gutfeld was a Roman Catholic altar boy during his childhood. He self-identifies as an “agnostic atheist.”
Gutfeld, hard rock and heavy metal music aficionado, has mentioned on-air that he likes a variety of bands, including Power Trip. After the passing of Power Trip singer Riley Gale in 2020, Gutfeld paid tribute to him.
Is Greg Gutfeld a Homosexual?
Greg is not gay and does not discriminate against LGBT people. During one of his panel appearances on The Five, he expressed his views on gay marriage, stating that conservatives should use gay marriage “against the left.”
Greg Gutfeld disclosed his plans to create New York City’s first Islamic homosexual bar next to Park51 Islamic community centre, also known as the Cordoba House or the “Ground Zero mosque” as it was dubbed by the media at the time.
He began his career as an intern at The American Spectator, where he worked as an assistant to conservative writer R. Emmett Tyrrell.
He worked as a staff writer at Prevention magazine after his internship, and then as an editor at Rodale Press in Emmaus, Pennsylvania, editing several of their magazines and books.
He started as a staff writer at Men’s Health in 1995 and was elevated to the editor in 1999. He was removed from his duties in 2000, and David Zinczenko took his position. Greg went on to become the editor in chief of Stuff, a British men’s magazine.
Greg executed a costly stunt in 2003 that made headlines while also costing him his job at Stuff. He paid several dwarfs and told them to go to a “Magazine Publishers of America” meeting on the theme of “buzz,” and to be as noisy and annoying as possible.
After it was determined that Greg Gutfeld was behind the stunt, he was fired.
He was soon promoted to Dennis Publishing’s head of “brain development.” He began working as an editor at Maxim magazine in the UK in late 2004 and continued till 2006.
He began contributing to The Huffington Post in 2005 and continued until October 2008. The Huffington Post website hosts many of his Huffington Post opinions and blogs.
Greg Gutfeld joined Fox News in 2007 as the anchor of Red Eye w/Greg Gutfeld, a four-hour late-night show on the Fox News Channel. In 2011, he joined The Five as a co-host and panellist. Gutfeld was given his own late-night show on the network, The Greg Gutfeld Show, in 2015.
