Hailing from Decatur, GA, Kourtlyn Wiggins began his comedy career as a dare, on the campus of Tennessee State University, in Nashville. While attending TSU, Kourtlyn’s natural talent of making people laugh did not go unnoticed, and he won the prestigious campus award of “Most Humorous.” With his clever observations of life, he’s able to find the funny in even the most unfavorable situations. Taking inspiration from comedy giants such as Eddie Murphy, Dave Chappelle, and Kevin Hart, Kourtlyn gives you an unfiltered glimpse into his personal life. He’s able to astonishingly make the daunting reality of his wife going deaf, one of the most hilarious conditions to cope with. Kourtlyn’s unorthodox thinking, coupled with his ability to draft a sound bit and timely deliverance of the perfect punchline , is sure to keep audiences laughing for years to come.
