Isaac Witty with Bill Young
The seeds of Isaac's love for--and precocious performance of--stand-up comedy were planted at an early age, and we're not merely referring to the fact that he was born with the comedy-ready name ISAAC WITTY. What we're actually referring to is that his comedy proclivities took root when he was quite young, while touring with his parents who made their living doing Christian sketch comedy in churches across the country. Subsequently, at an age where most youngsters are more concerned with getting their drivers license--16--Isaac first tried his hand at performing in a church talent show and decided to make stand-up comedy his career. Over the next several years he continued writing his own jokes and honing his performing chops in his hometown of Tulsa, Oklahoma. This effort paid off handsomely when he won the Tulsa "Comedy Central Laugh Off." After relocating to Minneapolis, he further broadened his resume by hosting a local TV program, "The Big Bad Movie Show." He has since appeared at the Chicago Comedy Festival, the prestigious "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal, Garrison's Keillor's, "A Prairie Home Companion, "The Late Show with David Letterman," Comedy Centrals "Premium Blend!" and volume 4 of the DVD series, "Thou Shalt Laugh," hosted by John Tesh. In June of 2009, Isaac helped create and starred in, "The Grave Review," which won Best Picture in the Minneapolis 48 hour film festival.
Bill Young is the kind of comedian that writes jokes and then tells you them when he is on stage. Funny and courteous, he comes to you with over 10 years of experience in stand up, sketch comedy, theater and Microsoft Office. Bill Young can do over 20 push ups in a row but doesn't like to brag about it!
Bill has worked as a contributing writer and performer for the Label Sketch Comedy, Drinking With Ian and the Other Side Project and opened as a stand up for Paul F. Thompkins of HBO's Mr.Show fame.
