Don Friesen: Smart and savvy highly caffeinated comedy

If you missed Don's hilarious Showtime one-hour Special, "Ask Your Mom," you've got to catch him live! Engaging, clever, and just flat-out funny, Friesen ignites the stage with a playful, high-energy spoof of his life as a modern suburban dad, and (until recently) husband, who’s just trying to make sense out of the constantly-changing world around him. Everyday life has never been funnier.

The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says “Friesen will leave a lasting comic impression,” and describes him as “offbeat, satirical, self-deprecating and slightly out of control.” With an act that somehow manages to be both intimate and absurd, Don will draw you into his world where he skillfully blends characters, voices, physicality, and parodies to create some of the most memorable routines around.

Friesen's credits include Showtime, Live at Gotham, and Comics Unleashed, and he is the only two-time winner in the 41-year history of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. He was also featured in TBS’ “The Comedy Festival” in Las Vegas and is a wildly popular on KLOS’ 5:00 Funnies, 100.3 The Sound’s Laughter at 45 After, and XM Sirius satellite radio.

Josef Anolin

Hailing from Oakland, CA, Josef Anolin is a regular in the Bay Area comedy scene for more time than he’d like to admit. He has also honed his craft in New York City, a place he’d still be if not for that minor inconvenience formerly known as the pandemic. On behalf of himself as an Asian American, he wants you to know he didn’t do that to you.
