Clarke started comedy for the logical and also insane reason that he liked to write, laugh, and perform. What better way to do all those things then stand-up. Eight years later and Clarke is still happily performing. Clarke's stand-up has matured along with him, but its roots still lay in the absurdity of what we call life. Clarke has performed in places ranging from libraries and Ramada Inns to world famous comedy clubs all along the west coast.
