If you missed Don’s hilarious Showtime one-hour Special, “Ask Your Mom,” you’ve got to catch him Live! Engaging, clever, and just flat-out funny, Don captures the irony of parenting, marriage and everyday absurdities through characters, voices, parodies and some of the best written routines around. The Seattle Post-Intelligencer says “Friesen will leave a lasting comic impression,” and describes him as “offbeat, satirical, self-deprecating and slightly out of control.”
As the only two-time winner in the 40-year history of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, Friesen ignites the stage with a playful, high-energy spoof of his life as a modern suburban dad trying to get through the day with a bit of money in the bank and a scrap of dignity intact.
He’s a wanna-be geek who constantly upgrades to the latest tech, but can never get it to work, leading to signature bits about tech support, Idiots Guides, texting and passwords.
Friesen’s credits include Showtime, Netflix, Live at Gotham, The Lewis Black Christmas Special, and Comics Unleashed. He was also featured in TBS’ “The Comedy Festival” in Las Vegas and is a wildly popular on KLOS’ 5:00 Funnies, 100.3 The Sound’s Laughter at 45 After, and XM Sirius satellite radio.
“We feel that we hit a home run with Don and will use him again given the opportunity.”
“THANKS for following up….Don was a hit at our dinner last night, and we very much enjoyed his act! In fact he already had some fans in attendance. When I found him after he arrived, he already had a group of them around him who didn’t want to give him up! But Don’s act was funny, appropriate, and just right in duration.”
“Don was fabulous! Everyone loved him and he did a wonderful job. He even took time to visit the show during the day and eat dinner with us in the evening. I will gladly provide any recommendation letters or referrals that you need for him. He is a reasonably-priced, highly entertaining performer that I would recommend to any group.”
“If you are looking for a hilarious comedian who has a clean act, Don is the one. Many in our group thought he was the best comedian we’ve ever had (and we have had numerous really good comedians entertain at our annual event). Don is also easy to work with and his audience interaction was great.”
“He is HILARIOUS! My jaws hurt from laughing so hard! We highly recommend him!”
