Highly regarded, widely applauded; stand-up comedian Travis Simmons is known for his brilliant observations, amazing impressions, and astute political commentary. Travis travels the world over to bring his funny to people just like you. Take a listen, Travis Simmons is "Funnier Than You Think"
Born thinking too hard about the world around him, he's grown up to tell audiences everywhere what he thinks about everything. Some people hug trees, others run for political office…he makes people laugh by being honest,
telling the truth, and sprinkling in an impression or two. He is one of the good guys, dedicated to comedy for the sake of all earthlings. His motto is, "Changing the World One Joke at a Time"
Travis Simmons is Winner of the "I Sound More Like Bill Cosby than Bill Cosby Contest" (Track 14), Seattle International Comedy Contest Finalist, and the 2012 Grit City Comedy Champion! A stand-up comedian for 15 years, this is his first internationally-released CD.
Special Thanks to the Audience at the Seattle Comedy Underground. What a wonderful group of earthlings. A room full of people in the moment. When the audience adds to a performance because they're tightly tracking with the stand-up comedian, it's so pleasing to the ear.
