Biography

Whether or not you’re into setting loved ones ablaze after a good chuckle, Justin Schlegel has a comedy style so wild and outrageous, you can’t help but to see why someone would want to. One of the brightest stars in the Baltimore/Washington D.C. scene, Justin can be found working many of the major clubs regularly throughout the year. His friendly demeanor with just a touch of paranoid schizophrenia is a huge hit with all audiences, ESPECIALLY paranoid schizophrenics (they have few heroes…). His style has been compared to Jim Carrey, Dane Cook, and Sam Kinison, but with a flavor that’s all his own.
