Comedian: Samuel Comroe
Born and raised in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, California, into a family of nine (five sisters, and one brother) Samuel Comroe grew up in a loud, raucous, and fun-loving environment. With such vivacious characters for siblings, it was an environment that forced any shyness out of him right away, and instead created an individual unafraid of being the center-of-attention. In the third grade, after being diagnosed with Tourette syndrome, Comroe suffered his fair share of teases and taunts from peers who didn't understand his curious condition.
Although this affected his self-esteem and confidence throughout his childhood, as he entered high school in a different district (and on the heels of advice from his father that he could be an entirely new person), Comroe made a conscious decision to no longer let bullying affect him, rather laugh along with the bullies. For example, on his first day as a high school freshman, Sam was being picked on by two intimidating seniors, and instead of backing off he decided to laugh with them. This small act changed the rest of his high school career and led him to his future in stand-up comedy.
Since then, Samuel Comroe has gained management and become a House Regular at Flappers Comedy Club in Burbank. He is also a regular at comedy clubs around Los Angeles, such as The Ice House, and the Improv. He has also started gaining more recognition outside of Los Angeles, traveling regularly to perform his comedy at venues all over the nation. He has won numerous comedy competitions, most recently placing in the top eight out of one-hundred and one comics at the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas, and becoming a Top Ten Finalist in the NBC Stand-Up for Diversity showcase. He is now opening for comedians such as Joey Medina, Tom Green, Gallagher, Don Friesen and James P Connolly, just to name a few. He is one of the most energetic, engaging and friendly up and coming comedians.
