Aaron David Ward

Bio
Comedian Aaron David Ward gets audiences laughing and thinking at his self-deprecating, socio-political, and culturally critical comedy. He opens his heart, mind, and soul to fans during each trip deep inside his mind for a funny, honest, and twisted look at his concerns, disappointments, doubts, fears, and worries.

Aaron began his stand up comedy career on May 31, 2002 when he was fired from a job and realized he had nothing left to lose but his dignity and self-respect by stepping on stage and making people laugh.

Six years later, Aaron has performed in ten states throughout the Northeast and Midwest, appeared in the Boston Comedy Festival, and in several movies including What I See In The Dark and Aftermath as well as a pilot for MTV and VH1 entitled The List.

His act is both auto-biographical and worldly. Aaron explores his inner demons and outer foes with honesty, integrity, and, of course, humor. If you are a fan of funny, insightful, and intelligent comedy, Aaron David Ward is your kind of comedian.
