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 Stephen Lynch.
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," and returned 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 “Cinemania."
As Evan's television appearances grew so did his performance schedule. Last year Evan performed over 100 shows, including stops at 50 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 NBC's "America’s Got Talent." He also worked on his first feature film, "Columbus Circle," a thriller starring Jason Lee and Amy Smart.
In the fall, Evan toured 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 debut nationally in Maine in October 2009.
Evan continues to tour colleges, clubs, high schools and private shows year-round. Last year he released his LP "LOL" on Uproar Entertainment and later that fall he had a cameo on the season premiere of Fox's hit show Glee! This summer Evan began a new passion, audience warm-up, while priming the crowd for Adam Carolla's The Car Show on SPEED Channel.
