Born and raised in Saint Cloud, Minnesota — a city as large as it is small. Comrade was a finalist in Sisyphus Brewing’s Funniest Person in Minneapolis 2017 Contest when he didn’t live in Minneapolis and The House of Comedy’s Funniest Person with a Day Job Contest 2018 when he was unemployed. He is no longer unemployed and has moved to the Twin Cities area, but is still very sad. Despite his despondent disposition, he’s a child at heart, insomuch that he cannot be trusted to take care of himself and has no self esteem whatsoever.
