As the only two-time winner in the 36-year history of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, Friesen ignites the stage with a playful, high-energy spoof of his life as a modern suburban dad trying to get through the day with a bit of money in the bank and a scrap of dignity intact.

An award-winning journalist, Witham always enjoyed making co-workers laugh. He once organized "pager races" in which two competitors set their rigs to vibrate and dialed furiously, trying to move them to the finish line. He pulls his humor from growing up in northern Virginia, his Irish-Catholic mother, his drama professor father and being the younger brother of a Navy SEAL. Much of his material comes from the working world where has toiled not only as journalist but as a temp, an SAT proctor and even as a berry picker. A graduate of the University of Washington, where he was the editor of the "UW Daily," Witham has performed at the Hollywood and Irvine Improvs, the Comedy Store, Laugh Factory, and the Ice House. We was the winner of the 2003 Seattle International Comedy Competition and regularly tours Iraq and Afghanistan entertaining the troops. WEBSITE | | MYSPACE |
