Where I'm At


Wes    Hazard


Hi There! I’m Wes Hazard, a standup comic, storyteller, actor, & writer who’s currently based in Brooklyn, NY. I’ve performed comedy throughout the country, I’ve won multiple MOTH story slams and have appeared on the Risk! Storytelling podcast, I currently co-host Stories From The Stage on PBS/WORLD Channel, and my humor book Questions For Terrible People is currently available from Simon & Schuster. Also, if you’re a trivia fan you might have seen me on Jeopardy! where I became a 3x Champion.


Every week I publish a newsletter of personally curated content (cool articles, fascinating videos, timely vocab, words of wisdom, fun facts, etc) that I think you'll love. It's called WesRecs and you can subscribe HERE.
