Mass. Native And Comedian Chris Fleming On The Character That Made Him Go Viral

Comedian and impressionist Chris Fleming has more than 36 million views and 232,000-plus subscribers on YouTube, thanks to viral videos like “Company is Coming,” and the viral web series “Gayle.”

“Gayle” is based on the fictional, hyper-competitive stay-at-home mom, Gayle Waters-Waters — whose world is based partially on people Fleming says he encountered in his hometown of Stow, Massachusetts.

His one-hour stand-up special, "Showpig" is now available on YouTube. You can also see him in the upcoming Netflix film, "The Last Laugh," starring Richard Dreyfuss and Chevy Chase, as well as the new season of Comedy Central's "Corporate.” He joined Jim Braude to discuss it all.
