Ken Garr grew up on the south side of Chicago. The son of a retired Chicago Fire Fighter and Homemaker, Ken proudly hails from three generations of fire fighters. The youngest of 4 children, Ken’s hilarious views on life are derived from growing up in a blue collar family with his own white collar aspirations.
Ken’s countless life experiences including a recent divorce, his “boring” job at a Wall Street firm and his numerous run-ins with the law and subsequent trips to the hospital make his seemingly never-ending journey to fame and fortune a can’t miss experience.
A graduate of the world famous Second City Conservatory in Chicago, Ken performs regularly at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and has performed in both the “Laugh Your Asheville Off” Comedy Festival in Asheville, North Carolina and the Big Sky Comedy Festival in Billings, Montana and can be seen regularly at the world famous Hollywood Improv and Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena, CA.
