Hal Baum is a multi-media artist, musician, writer and performer from the South Side of Chicago, currently living in Los Angeles. 

Here he is, gluing quarters to his head.

Hal's work has been showcased at theaters around Chicago including The Neo-Futurists, The Annoyance, Schuba's,  Subterranean, and The Laugh Factory.

In 2016 Hal was invited to be an artist in residence at Holden Village, in Washington state.

In 2019 he released his debut album Love Songs For The Moon on the Preserve Records label.

Wether it's solo performance, music, or animation, Hal always has something deeply personal and very important to tell you, but presents it with an absurd humor that defies you to take him too seriously.
