Television and film

He has appeared in several TV series and short films. Recently he has featured on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon both performing stand up comedy and performing in Fallon's Barbershop Quartet, with whom he performed "Sexy Back" along with Justin Timberlake and Roxanne along with Sting. He has also appeared with Conan O'Brien doing stand up.[1]

He is the host of Red Eye on FOX News Channel and in early 2014 co-hosted several episodes of The Five in Greg Gutfeld's place while the latter was promoting his book Not Cool.[2]

He became the permanent host of Red Eye on June 22, 2015 since Greg Gutfeld left to host his new show The Greg Gutfeld Show.

Shillue is a former correspondent on The Daily Show.[3]

He appeared in the film Mystery Team by Derrick Comedy in 2009. His television acting work includes guest spots on programs like Spin City, Broad City and Law and Order.

Stand Up and theatre

He performs frequently as an opening act for Jim Gaffigan. He also performed a two-man show along with Gaffigan in the late 1990s called The American White Male.[4]

Shillue has performed solo shows including Supernormal at PS122 and Dad 2.0 at Ars Nova Theatre.[5][6]

During the height of the Lewinsky scandal, Shillue demonstrated his abilities to portray a wide range of characters when he all but transformed himself into comedic incarnations of John Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, Harry Truman and special prosecutor Ken Starr in playwright Eric Zaccar's social satire for the stage, "Starr's on Broadway."[7][8]

Other work

Shillue announced his 12 in 12 project, whereby he would release an album of new material each month from November 2012 to October 2013.[9] Some viewers of Red Eye believed the promotion of these new albums was simply a running gag on the show, a misconception which Shillue and Gutfeld dispelled on air, leading to a spike in sales.[10]
