Owen Straw’s comedic style of absurdist literalism has been capturing the hearts of audiences for years. Owen lives alternately in Brooklyn and his car. He’s an oddball outsider, driving around the country in a beat up old Toyota,?putting on shows wherever he goes.
Bringing a unique energy and deceptive intelligence to his bizarre jokes, Straw’s act weaves from quick one liners and impressions to tragically surreal stories of adventure and sometimes a sing-a-long.
From improvising brilliant and unpredictable rants for crowds of jaded comedy nerds to pounding out joke after joke for rowdy drunks in the roughest road rooms, Owen Straw gets big laughs in any environment.
Owen Straw has won championships in pizza eating and semi-professional wrestling, released a handful of punk rock records, created the World Extreme Pencil Fighting Championships, and appeared in movies and television, including the Daytime Emmy winning PBS series BizKid$.
