Comedian Aaron Aryanpur
Comedian Aaron Aryanpur is one of the reasons why Dallas has a comedy scene. He started performing when there was just one comedy club in town, which usually catered to out-of-towner headliners. The rest were coffee shops and bars that had an unoccupied corner and an owner who didn't mind someone bringing their own microphone and amp to do their act for their customers.
Aryanpur's dedication to his craft and hard-won accolades including a first place finish in the 2012 Funniest Comic in Texas and semi-finalist spots in Comedy Central's national Up Next Search and NBC's Stand Up for Diversity have not only made him a popular DFW headliner who still draws in big crowds, even when he was just the opening act. They've also earned him some prime time under spotlights all around the country including a recent spot on the FOX comedy showcase Laughs, even after a trip through airport hell cost him his first spot.
If that sounds like someone who deserves a chance to record their own comedy album, you're half right. Aryanpur will record four shows at Hyena's Comedy Nightclub this weekend.More »
