Ian Abramson is from Moreno Valley, California, where he learned to walk, read, and drive, but not in that order. His stand-up is a mix of precise wordplay, longer emotionally absurd jokes, and larger conceptual pieces. In 2014 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. In the fall of 2015 Ian was LA Weeklys Best Up-and-Coming Comedian.
This past July, Ian Abramson was selected as a New Face for the world renowned Just For Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal, Canada. He is a regular contributor to The Onion and also the creator and host of the buzzed about show 7 Minutes in Purgatory where comedians perform to a camera in one room while the audience watches in another room. Over the past year Ian, along with his show 7 Minutes in Purgatory, have performed at SXSW, New York Comedy Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival in Portland, The Onion/A.V. Club festival in Chicago and Funny or Dies Oddball Festival. Ian was also a guest on History Channels JOIN OR DIE and appeared on THE MIDDLE.
