Early life and family[edit | edit source]

Gelch was born in 1972 to Monica Gelch (born Monica Josephine Wells in 1946) and David Gelch, Sr. (born in 1941). His father, who struggled to be a famous comedian, hoped his son would become famous as a funnyman. His mother, a schoolteacher, wanted him to graduate from high school, go to college, and get a degree. His father took him to street corners to perform in front of audiences in the early 1980s, after witnessing him telling jokes to his family.
