Gene Gnocchi (byname of Eugenio Ghiozzi; born March 1, 1955), best known by his stage name is an Italian television presenter, comedian and footballer.

Gene Gnocchi was born in Fidenza into a working class family. He was an aspiring vocalist in a rock band when he was younger, and also has a degree as a lawyer; however, both these different roads produced quite unsuccessful results.

He took advice from the general public and took the road of a comedian. He started to appear on the then unknown stage of Milan's Zelig in the 1980s, as well as an emerging comedian on the Maurizio Costanzo Show.

Gene started enjoying success in the 1990s and now is mostly known for his role in Quelli che il calcio, a Raidue football-related TV show with Simona Ventura, usually aired on Sundays.
