I was born in Virginia, started comedy in DC, aged four years, and now live in Los Angeles. I won the DC Improv Comedy Competition in 2008 and other lesser important comedy contests in VA. I soon made a name for myself as the premiere contest winner and cheater of DC. I am very proud of the peer group I started out with in DC and think they will all be comedy heros! You must feel foolish for not having seen them. I've been invited to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival twice now and picked out of 600 hundred comics to compete in the Laughing Skull Festival where I made it to the semi-finals. The webcomic that I make with my brother Clay Yount www.robandelliot.com has an awesome fanbase and has been a critics' favorite on occasion. We've been doing it for 6 years. If it were a child it would finally be of the age to realize the world is fucked up.
