Ethan SP
Ethan SP
Ethan is a young comedian from in Waukegan Illinois. He started stand up at the tender and unfunny age of 18 while in college in Iowa City. In college he opened up for the likes of Loni Love and Cameron Esposito, and moved to NY four years later. He has been described as "not the funniest person in the family" by his mother and father. But determined to take the title of funniest in the family Ethan pools a lot of his comedy from everyday life and his hilarious family as well as goofy throw away jokes about food. He is also pleased you read this far in to his bio and can tell you really love comedy. He is excited to see you at the show! He also wrote this whole bio and it feels weird!
