Ian Abramson is from Moreno Valley, California, where he learned to walk, read, and drive, but not in that order. His stand-up has evolved into a mix of precise wordplay, longer emotionally absurd jokes, and larger conceptual pieces. In the past year, Ian has performed at the world-famous Just for Laughs Festival as part of their New Faces of Comedy, SXSW, Oddball Comedy Festival, and the UP Comedy Club.
Ian's Seven Minutes in Purgatory is an experimental show where comedians perform to a camera in one room while the audience watches in another room, resulting in the comics having no idea of how they are doing. Chicago Magazine named Ian “Best Experimental Comedian” and also listed him in a separate article as one of the “16 Comedians You Should See This Fall.”
