Daring to be different warren chooses to focus on a funny!

Warren has been seen on the show "comics unleashed" and can be heard regularly on Sirius XM radio. He's also a regular on the Bob and Tom Morning Show. More importantly Warren has gone overseas and performed for our troops stationed in Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan..not once or twice but FIVE times. His style is original, relatable and definitely funny.

Most recently he was on the FOX show “Laughs”!
 

Don't take our word for it, see some of the funny for yourself!
