As an actor, he's appeared on HBO's Not Necessarily the Elections, and in Sketchapalooza at the 1996 Aspen Comedy Festival. In addition, Gilmartin has written for the Emmy awards and for comedian/TV show host Dennis Miller, was nominated for a CableAce award for his work as co-host of Dinner and a Movie, and also pens poetry (hosting a weekly Sunday afternoon radio/poetry show on the website comedyworld.com). ~ Greg Prato, RoviPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
