Max Silvestri is a comedian, writer and actor living in Brooklyn. New York Magazine called him one of the "Ten Comedians People Find Funny," which means at least one person who works at a magazine thinks he is funny. For a long time he hosted a popular video podcast for VH1 called "Best Night Ever," which was big with high school students and still gets him lots of unsettling Facebook requests.
Max writes a weekly column about how much loves eating and drinking for the Onion's AV Club NY and also takes writing about "Top Chef" for the website Eater too seriously. He's also written for Gawker, the Huffington Post and other places. Along with Gabriel Delahaye, he makes videos as Gabe & Max for places like Details Magazine. Max has been in some TV commercials. He co-hosts Big Terrific, Time Out New York's Best New Variety Show, every Wednesday in Williamsburg alongside Gabe Liedman and SNL's Jenny Slate.
