James Fritz’s comedy has been called “a seamless blend of humor, honesty and fearlessness” by the Chicago Tribune. He was named Chicago’s Best Stand-up by the Chicago Reader for 2011. Some internet magazine compared him to Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and George Jones once, but that's ridiculous. I mean that’s just crazy. He appeared at the 2009-2012 Chicago Just For Laughs festivals, The Fest in Gainesville, and Crom Fest in Omaha. Originally from Kentucky, he did 12 years in Chicago and has recently moved to LA because that’s the law. Since then, he’s performed at the Hollywood Improv, UCB, The Meltdown and a metric ton of mildewy backrooms.
