Barry Laminack has been writing and performing stand up comedy for 4+ years, but he’s been making people laugh his entire life (except Mrs. Sinky in the 3rd grade, she was not a fan). So in 2013 he decided to pursue his dream and get on stage. His rise from beginner to professional happened at lightning speed, and he was working as a paid comedian within a year of his first time on stage.
Described as “OK” by his wife, Barry has proven to be much more than that to crowds. His insatiable need to make people laugh shines through every time he steps on stage. Audiences respond with enthusiasm to his fun and hilarious perspective on marriage, pop culture and life in general. His easygoing nature and professionalism off stage make him a favorite of headliners and bookers alike.
Barry also builds his growing fan base on the radio and is quickly becoming a force in the sports talk radio market in Houston.
Winner of ESPN Radio’s “Rock the Mic” in 2013, Barry parlayed that into a full time sports talk radio job with ESPN radio in Houston, hosting a show from 1p-4p weekdays and 9a-12p on Sundays.
