About Don Friesen
Smart and Savvy; highly-caffeinated comedy! Don is a two-time winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition (the only two-time winner in its storied 33-year history.) Past finalists in the competition include Robin Williams, Dana Carvey, Ellen DeGeneres, Sinbad, and Dane Cook just to name a few.
Don is a favorite on Sirius and XM Satellite Radio, and was recently featured in the TBS Comedy Festival in Las Vegas and the "Just For Laughs" comedy festival in Montreal. TV credits include Live at Gotham, Comics Unleashed, Later, Friday Nights and Lewis Black's "Surviving the Holidays."
Engaging, clean, clever, and flat-out fun, Don's act is a high energy satire of his life as a suburban husband and father of two trying to get through the day with a little money in the bank and a bit of dignity intact. Major themes are technology problems, marriage and parenting, with a fun mix of eclectic impressions including John Lithgow, Gary Busey and Dr. Phil.
