Now residing in New York, the North Carolina native, Jourdain Fisher is a comedian on the rise. With his fun material and open personality, audiences are drawn to his style and sense of humor. Jourdain is consistently pushing himself to create the best comedy experience for any venue he plays and has been doing so as a nationally touring act for the past seven years. After performing stand up for the first time at the age of 17 he continued to do so through high school and college. Stand up became a priority for him and now Jourdain has a degree that he doesn't use and a budding comedy career that should allow him to keep from working at the funeral home that his family owns.
