Sam Tallent Comedian Career

Sam Tallent never had any intention to do stand-up comedy at the beginning. Being hamstrung by other people made him think otherwise. 

After his high school graduation, his mother put him into an improv class at the Bovine Metropolis Theater in Denver. Initially, his goal was to be an improviser or a sketch comedian at that time. 

But when started doing it, he realized he didn't like to perform with other people. For better or worst, he wanted to be a lone wolf on the stage and be at the center of focus while being on the stage. This led him to his path toward stand-up comedy.

His beginning years as a stand-up comedian were anything but funny. According to the Sam Tallent, he was far from being a proper comedian for what he is today. His bits were embarrassing and he was just trying to get a response from the crowd about his joke. 

Sam tells that he had to lie to himself that he was making the right decision and he is going to be the best out there just to start his stand-up. But that helped him to move forward as a comedian. 

The comedian started the journey of his career in Colorado because the place was filled with talent and had brought out many good comedians. Plus if had started in cities such as New York or Los Angeles, it would have been very tough and a nightmare for him.

Along the way, he was able to get in touch and work with famous comedians such as Dave Chappelle and Kyle Kinnae. Now, he has had many shows in many cities in the US, Canada, Australia, Europe and Asia. 

Other than that, he also made his name as a novelist when he wrote his book called Running The Light. His book was featured in Birdy magazine and and is soon to be turned into a major motion picture. 

Aside from that, he and his buddy Nathan Lund have their podcast called Chubby Behemoth, which is available on Apple Podcast.
