The Comedy Underground is pleased to announce that once again we have partnered with Uproar Entertainment for a comedy album recording with Ty Barnett. This is the second comedy project recorded here with Ty and we’re thrilled.
Ty Barnett, a Chicago native, got his start at the Seattle Comedy Underground! Since then, his star keeps rising!! Dedicated to “BRINGING THE FUNNY”, his shows have been called “hilarious” (Whoopi Goldberg”), “thought provoking”, “edgy”, and have earned him countless T.V. appearances. As one of the two finalist on the most watched and Emmy nominated season of “LAST COMIC STANDING”, Ty Barnett has gone on to multiple “TONIGHT SHOW” appearances (Jay Leno says Ty is: “one of the funniest comedians working”). Along with HBO’s “BAD BOYS OF COMEDY”, his own “COMEDY CENTRAL PRESENTS” and 1 hour Special “Issues”, Ty has been called “one to watch” by the Hollywood Reporter.
He’s also been seen on the sitcoms “Samantha Who” and “Til Death”, as well as “Nick Mom night out” and “Tosh.O”. With charm and style that transend race and age, Ty’s ability to rock ANY and ALL audiences has made him an international favorite on stages from the South Side of Chicago to theaters in London. You don’t “go to” a Ty Barnett show, you “hang-out” with Ty Barnett.
“Original and funny”—Craig Ferguson
“Thought provoking”—the Hollywood Reporter
