Comedian Big Free is from Chicago IL, He realizes at an early age that he had the ability to make people laugh by often being the class clown. As a young boy his wicked, strange and out of control since of humor would often get him into trouble. He would make up jokes about tragedy and misfortunes. Free grew up the third child of six and would often give his siblings interviews after being disciplined.
Co- workers would gather around in the break room laughing at his stories. In 2000 a close friend suggested that he do comedy then introduced him to George Wilborne a legendary comedian and radio personality. George gave him advice and encouraged him, he also told him about the open mic circuit. Free would hit the circuit every night often times having to work the next day but by then Comedy had become an addiction. He then became a student of comedy watching videos and listening to audios of great comedian. Just a short list of the many comedians: Richard Pryor, Eddie Murphy, Paul Mooney, George Carlin, and the Kings of Comedy. They all inspired Free to try new and innovative approaches while fine tuning his skills. Once he found his niche he began to engage the crowd as if talking to his family.
