BIOGRAPHY
 
They don't make them like Evan Wecksell anymore.

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 and music, celebrates dysfunctional relationships, endorses unorthodox career paths 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 Standings 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 performing at countless venues across New York City and Long Island, Evan was a three-time Long Island Laff-Off Finalist and went on to release his live CD, Live at the Bitter End.

In March 2005, Evan relocated to Los Angeles. The move paid off that fall when he made his national television debut on VH1's "I Love the 80s 3D" and "I Love the Holidays." His comedy songs also began receiving consistent airplay on the nationally syndicated Dr. Demento Radio Show as well as other terrestrial and internet radio outlets.

In January 2006, Evan released his limited edition single Brokeback Mountain, a song that received national airplay leading up to the Academy Awards. A few months later Evan returned to television by appearing on VH1's "I Love Toys."

The following summer Evan offered commentary on VH1's "I Love the 70s II" and E! Television's "Forbes Celebrity 100: Who Made Bank." In the fall, he reprised his talking head role on E! Television's "30 Most Outrageous Celebrity Feuds."

As Evan's television appearances grew so did his performance schedule. Last year Evan performed over 100 shows touring clubs, colleges and radio stations across the country. He also found time to wrap several film, theater and commercial projects.

Evan continues to act and perform his comedy regularly around Los Angeles. His material can now be heard on Sirius Satellite Radio and he also hosts a weekly podcast about his beloved New York Yankees at www.YankeesPodcasts.com.

This spring Evan will go back on the road to tour clubs and colleges across the country. He is also starring in the original production College: The Musical - A Musical About College with his wife, actress and comedienne Kelly Meyersfield. Targeting college audience, the show will preview during the spring with college touring to begin in the fall. For more information on Evan and to purchase his CDs, visit www.EvanWecksell.com.
