Whether discussing drugs, politics, or life in general he shifts the vibe of any room and places the audience in the scene of every punch line. Rory Scovel has been a favorite in the festival circuit performing at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, Vancouver Comedy Festival, Seattle Comedy Competition, Del Close Improv Marathon, Bumbershoot Festival, Sasquatch Music Festival and Chicago Improv Festival. He has been featured on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The John Oliver Show for Comedy Central as well as Conan. He recently shot his Comedy Central Half Hour Presents, which will air in the summer of 2012. “Every night he stepped onstage his set was remarkably different, thanks to Scovel’s near-genius improvisational skill.” -The Stranger (Seattle)
