They don't make them like
Evan Wecksell anymore.
As one of the funniest and most energetic performers to emerge from New York's
comedy clubs and musical venues, Comedian and Singer/Songwriter Evan
Wecksell is often compared to comedic superstars Adam Sandler and
Evan's act, a blend of comedy, music and improvisation, celebrates the
college experience, endorses internet addiction and makes fun of bad music.
Evan developed his act by studying some of New York City's best known
comedians. Soon, Evan was performing alongside some of these very influences
including The Tonight Show's Mitch Fatel and Last Comic Standing's
Jessica Kirson, to name a few. On his native Long Island, Evan developed
a following hosting music nights and playing sets at Governor's Comedy
Cabaret, The Downtown and Munchaba Lounge.
After becoming a three-time Long
Island Laff-Off Finalist
and releasing his live CD, Live at the Bitter End, Evan
relocated to Los Angeles in March 2005. The move paid off that fall when he
made his national television debut on VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D," andreturned to VH1 the next year by
appearing on "I Love the 70s II" and "I Love Toys."
Evan's comedy songs also began receiving consistent airplay
on various radio outlets including XM, Sirius and the
nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Radio Show. Radio favorites
included "Brokeback Mountain," a song that gained popularity
leading up to the 2006 Academy Awards, and "Attack of the Cougar," an
edgy laugher that coincided with the release of "Sex and the City" in May
2008. Radio appearances included Playboy Radio’s "Afternoon Advice"
and WZLX’s Karlson & McKenzie morning show in Boston.
The following summer Evan offered commentary
on E! Television's "Forbes Celebrity 100: Who Made Bank" and
later reprised his talking head role on "30 Most Outrageous Celebrity
Feuds." He followed those appearances by flaunting in knowledge of
"Terminator 2" on AMC’s
As Evan's television appearances grew so did his performance
schedule. Last year Evan performed over 100 shows, including stops at50 colleges including a showcase selection for NACA's Mid-Atlantic
Festival. He was also selected by Campus Activities Magazine as"Hot Comedian for 2009."
In the summer of 2009, Evan taped Season 4 of
and also worked on his first feature film, "Columbus
a thriller starring Jason Lee and Amy Smart.
Last fall, Evan began touring not only as a solo act (and Greek Life speaker),
but also as part of College The Musical: A Musical About College,
an original musical comedy he produced and starred in with his
wife, actress and comedienne Kelly Meyersfield. The show debuted in
Ohio in August 2009 and continues to tour.
In the spring of 2010, Evan released his first full length album through Uproar Entertainment. The album, titled"LOL," is a compilation of studio and live tracks.
Evan continues to tour nationally and promote his album. In addition, Evan
dedicates a majority of his performances to supporting Greek Life (as an
alumnus of Theta Chi Fraternity), Hillels and a
variety of other causes through fundraisers.
