MEET YOUR HEADLINER: Prescott Tolk
Born and raised in Jersey, Prescott Tolk has performed comedy for the past 10 years, crystallizing his personal experiences as a post-graduate slacker in his hour-long comedy album "I Can Complain." Loaded with clever one-liners, prescient observations, and true-life anecdotes, he turns inexorable realities into hard-hitting laugh lines.
Now based in Chicago, he performs at clubs and colleges all over the country and has appeared on Comedy Central's Premium Blend. The Chicago Reader dubbed him a Critic's Choice and Time Out Chicago called him a "Don't Miss."
He was one of the founders of the popular comedy web site Blerds.com and developed a pilot for Warner Bros 2.0 under the comedy crew's banner. After graduating from Northwestern's Medill School of Journalism, he served as the senior editor for The Humor Network. He went on to cover Jersey City politics and community affairs for The Hudson Reporter.
Today, he actively writes comic essays for The Huffington Post and on his own blog at www.furtherfromthetruth.blogspot.com.
