Gillis is also well known as one half of Matt and Shane’s Secret Podcast, which regularly ranks on Apple’s top podcasts chart and is the #1 overall podcast on Patreon. Equally popular is the YouTube sketch series Gilly & Keeves, which he stars in opposite co-creator and co-writer John McKeever.

Set to continue his latest global comedy tour in 2024, Gillis is also repped by CAA and Yorn, Levine Barnes.
