Funniest Comic in Texas 2012 Winner Aaron Aryanpur has appeared in comedy clubs, theaters, colleges, festivals, arenas, bars, boardrooms and (literally) living rooms across the country. Recently making his national TV debut on FOX’s Laughs and a frequently requested comedian and headliner in his own right, Aaron was also a Semifinalist in both Comedy Central’s Up Next Talent Search and NBC’s Stand Up for Diversity. His album In Spite Of (through Stand Up! Records) debuted at #7 on the iTunes Comedy Chart and quickly reached #1. The following week, it placed on the Billboard Comedy Albums Top 10.
While Aaron’s act covers a variety of topics, it is his experiences as a husband to a patient wife and an exhausted father to two young boys that landed him a spot on the Minivan Men podcast with fellow funny dads Maz Jobrani (Axis of Evil Comedy Tour) and Al Madrigal (The Daily Show). His takes on marriage and parenthood have also been featured on Comedy Central Radio and 24/7 Comedy Radio. As a contributing joke writer for a variety of programs and publications, Aaron has covered topics ranging from current events to celebrity fashion to Stephen Hawking – sadly though, not a combination of all three. At least, not yet.
With over ten years of experience on numerous stages and a background that includes writing, performing, improvisation and voice-over, Aaron delivers laughs show after show with his unique perspective and expressive, likable delivery. His show has been called “controlled, engaging, open and vulnerable; ultimately, he’s relatable and very funny.”
