Ross Blankenship Stand Up Performance @ Laugh or Die 2013!

Chicago-based and Second-City-trained, Ross Blankenship uses his curious perspective and infectious enthusiasm to create a truly unique* brand of comedy. *(Unique as in ‘actually unique’, not like the way most comic bios say ‘unique’ and then they do their 10 minutes about prostate exams.)

Ross began his comedy career as a class clown in military school where he learned (a) he loved making people laugh even at horribly inappropriate times, and (b) he didn’t take anything serious enough to survive in the ‘real world’. Ross is on his way to becoming super famous, but if you have a time machine that’s no news to you is it?

In 2012 alone, Ross performed as the featured act for Bobby Collins at Valparaiso University, in the 2012 Des Plaines Comedy Festival (Des Plaines, IL) and the 2012 Black Box Comedy Festival (Atlanta, GA) sponsored by Georgia Tech. Ross currently works as a House MC at Wisecrackers Comedy Club in Merrillville, IN. When he’s not writing jokes or performing, Ross spends his time plotting revenge against his enemies. And reading poetry.
