“When I'm on-stage my goal is not only to create laughter, but to establish a genuine connection with the audience. My aim is to liberate others by letting my own light shine!”
Malcolm Grissom, Comic Storyteller
Malcolm Grissom's modern comedy is smart and poignant. Growing up in Hawaii, Malcolm, being the stepson of a musical genius with a corny sense of humor and the biological son of a wannabe actress, dancer, teacher, politician, rocket scientist, faith healer and psychic, had no choice but to become a professional funnyman. You can hear him and his co-host, Nicole Turley celebrate the community of creativity on the weekly podcast, The Verve Show.
