Brooks Wheelan grew up in Iowa wanting to become a comedian. He begged his parents to let him stay up to see Adam Sandler on Saturday Night Live Weekend Update as a child. He loved laughing at rediculous things so that is what his comedy is geared towards. He started his comedy career as soon as he got out of high school and with his unique style he quickly become known as one of the best new comedians in the Midwest. He recently graduated from the University of Iowa with a biomedical engineering degree (why not?) and moved to the Los Angeles.
