Ian Fidance is an offbeat yet upbeat stand up comic, actor, and writer from Wilmington, Delaware who calls New York City his home; Brooklyn to be specific, but you can already tell from his mustache.
A delicious cup of tea best drank live, Ian's comedy has been described as "bizarre yet funny" by The Interrobang. He can be heard every week on SiriusXM Comedy Central Radio's "You Up?" with Nikki Glaser, is a regular guest on SiriusXM’s The Bennington Show, Duncan Trussell's Family Hour podcast, and can be seen performing regularly at the Comedy Cellar in the heart of NYC’s Greenwich Village. He's been featured in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, as well as the Boston, Brooklyn, and New York Comedy Festivals. He's written & performed in sketches for Above Average, Conde Nast, Elite Daily, Funny or Die, and was commissioned by Nike to write & star in a live media presentation for their "Hyper" line of athletic wear.
Fidance made his stand up TV debut on the third season of AXS TV's "Gotham Comedy Live," can be seen on the upcoming season of "Grown & Sexy" on VH1, as well as “The Last O.G.” digital shorts on TBS, and has acted in sketches on Late Night with Seth Meyers. Recently he wrote for the Comedy Central show “Crank Yankers” and opened for folk rock legends The Lumineers in Brooklyn. He appeared in the short film “Motherstruck” which premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival this year, and he has a real happenin' podcast called "Ian Fidance's Wild World," available for download on iTunes, as well as a Sex And The City-ish themed podcast called “Sex Ian The City” which debuted at #153 on the comedy podcast charts.
After working a million jobs while growing up an only child to a single mother in Delaware, Ian has grown to be a live force and a stand out stand up with a fresh, positive voice in comedy. He can be seen nightly riding his bike(cycle) everywhere sharing his unique point of view and wild stories at places like Caroline’s on Broadway, The Comedy Cellar, New York Comedy Club, Stand Up New York, UCB Theatre, the Creek & the Cave, Union Hall, and The Bell House in Brooklyn. Every month he hosts a live stand up & animation show called "Picture This!" at Union Hall in Park Slope. He'll hit the road often playing clubs and independent venues all across the country, but will usually use his car for that.
