About Perry

Perry Kurtz, who celebrates 40 years as a Professional Comedian on March 17th 2014, was born in Philadelphia. As a 10-year-old Cub Scout, he briefly entered the entertainment arena when he threw his voice into a sock and began giving puppet shows at local playgrounds. In 1979 he moved to San Francisco and took a job as host & dancer at a Male Strip Show for Women.

In 1983, he left the "Broadway Scene" and pursued comedy in real comedy clubs on the road. A few years later, he was averaging 30 to 40 weeks a year headlining comedy clubs across North America and Canada.

Just before his birthday in 1989, he relocated to Los Angeles, and in 1991, he met his wife online. He currently resides in The Valley, and has 4 children" (had a baby at 53), the 9 year old daughter also performs and writes comedy with her father, works as a corporate comedian, comedy consultant, humor motivator and instructor, a free-lance writer for The Tonight Show, and continues to appear in comedy clubs around the world.
