As legend has it, Gabe Delahaye was crowned our first-ever Literary Upstart winner, which means he made lots of people laugh by reading things he wrote out loud so we gave him some money. (It also means we might be slightly bias, but just go with it.) I also once saw him read a love letter to Jessica Alba (or maybe it was Biel?) to a live audience, which was much more hilarious than I'm making it sound. He's since gone on to helm the editorial team at Videogum, where he's been churning out quick-witted pop-culture commentary at a rapid-fire pace for the last five years. Words are the basis of comedy. (At least sometimes!) He's got that part down. But there are also plenty of self-starring videos circulating the web, warming him up for a television debut. That one above is pretty much ready to go as a digital short on SNL's season premiere, is it not?
