Known for whip-quick wit and rollicking improvisations, Sam Tallent is one of the sharpest, most original rising talents in comedy today. He has been called “the absurd voice of a surreal generation” by the Denver Post, and, when not maintaining a “Black Flag esque tour schedule” (Savage Henry Magazine), Sam has worked alongside many of the biggest names in comedy, including Dave Chappelle, Doug Stanhope, Dana Carvey, Russel Peters, Hannibal Buress and Ron White. Sam has performed at the Oddball Comedy Festival, High Plains Comedy Festival and the NY Film and Television Festival and he hosted the weekly film series Film on the Rocks at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheatre, corralling 9000 people every Tuesday for two years. He recently won his battle on Comedy Central’s Roast Battle, and was seen on VICELAND’s Flophouse as well as the Chris Gethard Show. His writing has been published on VICE.com. He lives in Denver with his wife and his dog.
