Jeremy Whitman is a stand-up comedian, philosopher, humanitarian, writer, and podcaster.
Whitman began his adventure into stand-up comedy in Seattle in 2002. His rabid desire to preform coupled with his unique outlook was immediately well received and he quickly became a welcome and common site at comedy venue’s throughout the Pacific Northwest. In his second year Whitman was selected to be a competitor in the 2004 Seattle International Comedy Competition, and was also a finalist in the Portland Amateur Comedy Competition. Ever restless for bigger and better things Whitman soon undertook a life of full-time road work and by 2006 was busy headlining shows throughout the continental United States as a founding member of the Just Another Hangover Tour.
In the course of his career Whitman has not only taken his act to traditional venues such as comedy clubs, colleges, and theaters; but has also preformed in some of the strangest environments imaginable, such as a mining camp in Nevada, an elementary school converted into a biker bar, and even the three stories beneath the surface of the earth inside of a decommissioned rock quarry in Colorado converted into a bar.
Whitman’s comedy incorporates a wide variety of topics on everything from the pressures of family life, to current events, to just about anything else that you can think of. His disarming approach, unique voice, and dedication to making a personal connection with every audience allows him to enthusiastically lampoon any subject he can get his hands on.
