There's the persistent fear that robots are taking over our jobs. But have you ever wondered about robots becoming the new comedians? For more than a year, Greg the Robot hosted Humans!, a monthly sketch-comedy show at the now-defunct Amplyfi on Melrose, which featured such names as Charlyne Yi, Aparna Nancherla, Ian Abramson and Brent Weinbach. Greg not only hosted but told jokes and interacted with the audience. Mikey Heller, a comedian and head writer for Cartoon Network sitcom We Bare Bears, created the robot using boxes from Lowe's, aluminum and wheels from a remote control car — think Rosie from The Jetsons — and controls and voices him from offstage. For tonight's Mikey Heller Presents: A One-Robot Show, Greg the Robot performs stand-up solo for the first time. Don't be surprised if he lands his own podcast or series on a streaming service soon.
