Ken Rogerson, the funniest man you’ve never heard of, started his comedy career working the Chicago club circuit and at the famed Second City. After touring with the improvisational troupe The Comedy Rangers, Ken moved east and became a central part of the now famous and infamous exploding Boston comedy scene of the 1980’s. There he honed his standup act to a fine edge “…sharp enough to cut the head off a rabbit at thirty yards.”
Rogerson is one busy comic. A recent hit on Showtime’s Billy Gardell’s Road Dogs, just off his third Rescue Me Comedy Tour, appearances in Showtime’s “When Standup Stood Out”, and recently seen on CNN Comedy and at the TBS LOL Lounge from The Comedy Festival in Vegas, you may have also seen him as “Kevin the Biker Fireman” on F/X’s hit show “Rescue Me” starring Denis Leary or as “Pat the Cop” on ABC’s “It’s All Relative” with Lenny Clarke. He has made numerous other television appearances on such shows as NBC’s , “Late Night with Conan O’Brien”, “The Late Show with David Letterman”, “Last Comic Standing” “Comics Come Home” for Comedy Central and Showtime’s “A Pair of Jokes” just to name a few. Of the time he spends working in Los Angeles, Rogerson says “Being in L.A. is weird for me, because I grew up on Earth.”
A national headliner, Ken has performed all over the world. The Boston Herald says, “He makes the absurd seem logical” Las Vegas Magazine wrote, “As far as pure stand-up goes, it doesn’t get any better than Rogerson.” Others have written “He is fall down on the floor funny! Why doesn’t this guy have his own show?” and “He’s as funny a comic as Boston has produced.”
A writer, sketch player, actor and comedian, Ken wrote and starred in comedy film pieces on Fox Television Network’s “Sunday Comics” and has made film appearances in “Fever Pitch” and “There’s Something About Mary.” He has also been seen on Byron Allen’s “Comedy Jam” and starred in his own episode of “Who Wants to Date a Comic?” Rogerson has also written for the new series “Sirens.” Life with Ken Rogerson is a wild ride “I was out driving the other day and I had an accident. I hit a lake.” Visit Ken at www.comedynorth.com/rogerson.htm
