Noah Gardenswartz
Noah Gardenswartz
Always relaxed on stage with a wide range of material and a unique perspective on life, Noah Gardenswartz is a comedian you should know about.

Noah was born and raised in Denver, but cut his comedy teeth in the diverse rooms of Atlanta. Currently living in Brooklyn, Gardenswartz’s well-crafted mix of jokes, observations, and personal stories have made him a New York City favorite, and a nationally booked up-and-comer.

In 2016, Noah had his own half hour special on Comedy Central, and also released his debut comedy album, “Blunt,” on Comedy Central Records. He has appeared on Conan, Comedy Central’s “Adam Devine’s House Party,” and in 2015 he was a semi-finalist on NBC’s “Last Comic Standing.”

He has written for truTV’s “Comedy Knockout,” and also appears regularly as a panelist on the show. Before turning to stand-up full time, Gardenswartz worked as a journalist, hedge fund day
trader, elementary school teacher, and even grew weed, though obviously not all at once.

You're trudging through sand, and eventually you just have to turn around and head back the way you came.
