Originally a sketch writer and Improv performer at Chicago's Second City, Bryan Valencia is no stranger to the stage. Hailing from Albuquerque, New Mexico, he was the head writer at Comedy Well Done and Jokes4Miles, where he held the honor of sketch writing alongside comedy pioneer Ritch Shydner. He is the current Host of The World Series of Comedy and, over the past three years, has performed across 34 states and multiple international comedy festivals, all while raising money for pediatric cancer research. From collegiate degrees in Creative Writing, Journalism and Dance Studies to dedicated years of martial arts, music, culinary arts and athletic practice, Bryan has combined his talents over the years into a one-of-a-kind, Vaudevillian style that teeters on the cusp of humor, sentiment, and absurdity. Simply put - he is a weirdo.
