Bronx-born comic, writer, and actress Gina Brillon started her stand-up career much earlier than most, at only 17 years old. Finding a way to fit in with the other older comics at New York City clubs -- and keeping audiences laughing along the way -- gave her experience most comics don't get until their late 20s or 30s. That early drive paid off, and Brillon made her first TV appearance over 10 years ago on Comedy Central's Live at Gotham.
