With a dedication to “bringing the funny”, his shows have been called “hilarious,” “thought provoking,” “edgy,” and made him a regular on the College circuit. It’s also earned him numerous TV appearances, including The Tonight Show with Jay Leno twice, HBO’s Bad Boys of Comedy, VH1’s Black to the Future specials, and Comics Unleashed as well as his own Comedy Central Presents special, and his one-hour special Issues. He’s also appeared on such sitcoms as FOX’s ‘Til Death and ABC’s Samantha Who. Ty’s amazing run on Last Comic Standing (which has been called “one of the best” in the show’s history), introduced Ty to the world and he’s been cracking ’em up ever since. Ty makes his home in Los Angeles but tours regularly.

Nigel Larson, teller of jokes, player of video games, guy you’re generally okay with dating your daughter. A handsome devil who’s traveled the world and done stand-up for almost a decade, performing in every conceivable venue. He’s a smart cat with a crooked smile, a leather jacket and a way of seeing life from a different perspective. Nigel takes the stage with a jovial demeanor and instant likability. At first playing on his innocent appearance to establish a rapport with the audience he then quickly reveals that beneath his boyish good looks lies a cuttingly clever wit. His act is largely autobiographical, turning a lifetime of failure into consistent on-stage success with honest stories and sophisticated material. So why don’t you come sit a while and listen.
