There are two ways to get featured in the comedy section on westcoaststyles.com. you either have to consistently kill crowds with original material or make me laugh out loud. This week’s feature comedian has done both.
Sam Ridley has been crushing west coast stages for 9 years now. If you haven’t seen him perform, you’re cheating yourself. This man is FUNNY!!! Influenced by comedy greats such as Robin Harris, Eddie Murphy, and his personal G.O.A.T. Martin Lawrence, his style pays respect while the jokes are all his and authentic. His love for funny came from his dad who also loved making people laugh. He co-hosts The Illegal Opinions podcast and along with Marcus Palmer provides “unpopular” takes on societal issues. If you aren’t a fan of traditional pods, this is probably the one for you. It’s available to audio stream on all major platforms as well as video on YouTube.
As with every stand up comedian, Covid-19 has derailed live shows And like the rest of us, he can’t wait to get back in front of a live audience. Soon his calendar will be stage heavy again, but until then you can catch his podcast and become part of his ever growing fan base. You can also follow him on the usual social media outlets; @samridleycomedy or @illegalopinionspodcast on IG and Twitter. His fan pages are Sam Ridley lll Entertainment and Illegal Opinions Podcast on Facebook.
