The Funniest Man You've Never Heard Of,
KEN ROGERSON started his comedy career working the Chicago club
circuit and at the famed Second City. After touring with the
improvisational troupe The Comedy Rangers, Ken moved east and became
a central part of the now famous and infamous exploding Boston
comedy scene of the 1980's as documented in the film "When Standup
Stood Out". There he honed his standup act to a fine edge "…sharp
enough to cut the head off a rabbit at thirty yards."
Fresh off the Rescue Me Comedy Tour and recently completing taping
the Billy Gardell Showtime Special you may also have seen him as
"Kevin the Biker Fireman" on F/X's hit show "Rescue Me" starring
Denis Leary or as "Pat the Cop" on ABC's "It's All Relative" with
Lenny Clarke. He has also made numerous other television appearances
on such shows as NBC's , "Late night with Conan O'Brien", "The Late
Show with David Letterman", "Comics Come Home" for Comedy Central
and Showtime's "A Pair of Jokes" just to name a few. Of the time he
spends working in Los Angeles, Rogerson says "Being in L.A. is weird
for me, because I grew up on Earth."
A national headliner, Ken has performed all over the world. A
favorite at Festivals, he appeared at The Boston Comedy Festival
with Lewis Black and Friends and the TBS Comedy Festival in Las
Vegas. The Boston Herald says "He makes the absurd seem logical" Las
Vegas Magazine wrote, "As far as pure stand-up goes, it doesn't get
any better than Rogerson." Others have written "He is fall down on
the floor funny! Why doesn't this guy have his own show?" and "He's
as funny a comic as Boston has produced."
A writer, sketch player, actor and comedian, Ken wrote and starred
in comedy film pieces on Fox Television Network's "Sunday Comics"
and has made film appearances in "Fever Pitch" and "There's
Something About Mary." He has written several episodes for USA
Network’s comedy, “Sirens” created by Denis Leary.
Life with Ken Rogerson is a wild ride "I was out driving the other
day and I had an accident. I hit a lake."
