Lawrence, Kansas native Brad Ellis has been making a name for himself as one of the hottest young comedians to come out of the Midwest comedy scene. Brad’s work ethic and professionalism on and off stage has earned him the title “Hardest Working Comic in Kansas City” from many of his peers. His background as a U.S. Marine and former law enforcement officer creates a solid foundation for his professionalism. Years of work experiences continue to shape his unique view on daily situations, while also being a major influence in his on and off stage charisma.
Recently, Brad had been selected to compete in the 2011 Comcast TV’s Trial by Laughter. Not only is he competing in national competitions, but is a prominent feature on the Kansas City scene, and works regularly at both Stanford & Sons Comedy Club and the Improv circuit. He is a regular Feature/Headliner at Stanford’s Comedy Club as well as hosts their open mic night every Tuesday. Brad has also done shows for colleges like the University of Kansas, NorthwestUniversity and more. He has shared the stage with nationally touring comics like Doug Stanhope, Dov Davidoff, Jon Reep, Dante, Sean Kent, Robert Kelly, Karen Rontowski, Iliza Schlesinger, John Heffron, and Steve Byrn. Recently, he was hand-picked to perform for the high profile 2011 Hyatt Regency New Year’s Eve Bash with J Chris Newberg.
