Widely seen as one of the most promising young stand-up comedians working, Mr. Fowler is an excitable stage presence with a gift for descriptive, hilarious storytelling.
Thirty seconds into a conversation with Jermaine Fowler and it’s easy to see why he’s on the verge of becoming a breakout star. Fowler has an affable yet frenetic energy that he channels into a career-driven focus.
He spins tales that feel both expertly structured and completely uncontrolled, swapping out emotions and characters with terrifying ease: one second he’s a kindly old woman, the next he’s a furious bus driver, screaming at his passengers to give up their seat. His manic exuberance could easily fill an arena, but for Give ‘Em Hell, Kid—which he completely self-financed—he insisted on a more intimate space.
