Best known from NBC’s hit reality show Last Comic Standing, Rich Vos is one of the most exciting and broadest headlining comedians in the country. Back Stage Magazine says of Vos, “He has an uncanny Everyman ability to likeably bond with anyone in the audience.” The excitement of a Rich Vos show comes from his unique, no-holds-barred perspective on relationships, divorce and parenthood. Rich pulls no punches when it comes to comedy. On many occasions, he will deliver some of the quickest crowd banter that leaves audiences not knowing what to expect next.
Vos is a “comic’s comic” who is quick off-the-cuff and appeals to all types of audiences, which is best represented by his extensive resume of television and radio appearances. He has 2 Comedy Central Half-Hour Specials and also has appeared in two other Comedy Central specials. He was a regular guest on Tough Crowd with Colin Quin, as well as regular guest for the last 10 years on the Opie and Anthony radio show. He has been seen on HBO, Showtime, Starz, Jimmy Kimmel, The View, a regular on the Joy Behar show, 3 appearances on the Apollo, 4 appearances on BET, the first white comic to perform on HBO Def Comedy Jam, the Rosie show, NBC American Dreams, and has appeared in and wrote for many roasts, and also wrote on the 2005 Oscars.
Growing up on the wrong side of the tracks, Rich struggled to beat drug and alcohol addictions. He now celebrates his victories on stage with stories about kids, divorce, marriage, recovery. Besides being a proud parent of three beautiful girls, I am happy to say that I just celebrated 25 years, clean and sober.
His strength as a live performer comes from years of headlining clubs across the country and performing shows for colleges, corporations and charities. He is inundated with letters of thanks and gratitude for the good work he has done. When he is not on the road, he can be seen regularly at Carolines and The Comedy Cellar as well as other clubs all over New York City, which he calls home.
