"Bryson Turner is no Magellan"

It’s hard to hate standup comic Bryson Turner, even though he’s following his dream and has a good shot at becoming famous. But his jokes are so smart (not to mention self-deprecating) that you can’t help but root for him.
Turner took the Austin comedy scene by storm last year after he moved to town from Washington, D.C. and promptly won the 2009 Funniest Person In Austin contest.
His material, delivered in a super-relaxed style, has lately focused on being in a state of limbo between childhood and adulthood. He also talks about girls. A lot.
Later this year, Turner will debut on Comedy Central. He’s performing this Friday and Saturday at the Velveeta Room. Here’s a clip of his stuff. - Austin-American Statesman

"Meet Bryson Turner, 2009 Funniest Person in Austin"

“'s a portion of a chat I had last night with Bryson Turner after he won the 24th annual Funniest Person in Austin contest.

Turner is a recent transplant to Austin's comedy scene -- he's from the Pittsburgh area and formed his early stand-up start in D.C. Here, let him explain how he has settled in nicely enough in Austin, and why he chose the Texas capital to grow his career as a comedian." -

Still working on that hot first release.



Very few comics are able to toe the line between being genuinely hilarious, and simply genuine. Bryson Turner does so wonderfully, weaving personal anecdotes of his triumphs and failures through his early-adulthood years, but doing so in a way that disarms the supposedly terrifying “real world” and makes each audience member - be it a college freshmen or a senior citizen - realize that we’re more similar than we thought.

Bryson has performed across the country - at dozens of clubs and colleges, from Boston to Austin, from the SXSW festival (2011) to Marc Maron’s WTF Podcast (2010), at some of the best clubs in the country, as well as voluntarily in public libraries and children’s hospitals. His ability to connect people from all walks of life is what makes his comedy so unique, and what makes it a truly exhilarating experience. At the age of 27, he has established himself as one of the funniest and most insightful young comics in the country.
