Curtis Cook moved to Portland, Oregon to help fulfill the city’s diversity quota and pursue his dream of being a stand-up comic. Since arriving in the Northwest, his “politely militant” style has made him one of the region’s top comedians. He has been singled out by the Portland Mercury for his “sleepy, slam poetry” delivery and was highlighted as one of Portland’s Funniest 5 by the Willamette Week. Curtis has performed with Reggie Watts, Kyle Kinane, Ali Wong, Baron Vaughn, and Dave Attell, among others. In addition to performing stand-up, Curtis has worked internationally with Daily VICE and was recently featured on the debut episode of VICELAND's new television show Flophouse. Having gone to a liberal arts college himself, Curtis is a firm believer in progressive comedy and knows that we can all change the world by having long conversations with people we already agree with.
