"Laughing HIs Way To The Top"

K-von opened his show, his first ever in Reno, by referencing the Reno Community. K-von decided to move to Los Angeles a few years back to chase his dreams in the entertainment industry.

"In college I had not idea how to get started with comedy," he said. "My first priority was to get my college degree." Since then he has had plenty of success including "SHOWTIME'S 'Comics Without Borders" and as the lead in the comedy horror flick "Gingerdead Man 2".

"No one pictures you in a movie until you have done a movie," he said. "You have to show them what you're capable of. Hollywood likes to have a bandwagon. With every movie you make you expand your audience and then get to do more comedy shows!"

K-von has recently been performing with Jamie Kennedy from the "Scream" movies and no doubt we will be seeing more of him.

"Meet K-von !!!"

K-von parlays business degree into comedy career!

K-von (his real name), a native Nevadan and 2003 marketing and management alumnus, currently lives in Beverly Hills. He starred in the horror flick spoof The Gingerdead Man 2, and has appeared many times on television, including Showtime’s Comics w/out Borders with Russell Peters, the Style Network and Good Morning America to name a few. He is a regular at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory and tours colleges and clubs across the country.

With a Persian father and an American mother, K-von has a good-natured brand of multicultural humor—and he’s not afraid to mock anyone, of any ethnicity, but he takes special aim at his Middle Eastern brethren.

Constantly coming up with new material, he often draws from his childhood in Las Vegas, as well as his experiences as a college student at the University. class, the more jokes there were. In fact, I tell my family to this day that I was low on material and that’s why I had to take accounting twice.

Q: What's it like being a comedian?
A: It’s a total roller coaster ride. Maintaining a daytime job, preparing for shows at night, impressing club owners and building a fan base keep you very busy. For the first few years a comic is just trying to figure out who they are on stage, come up with material, and basically survive for the amount of time you are on stage. If you can get past the ups and downs in the beginning, it becomes a lot more rewarding. We have a lot of fun on the road and after shows, but the comics I see really excelling treat comedy more like a business than a 24/7 party.

Q: How did your experiences at the University help shape your future career path?
A: From a business standpoint, I use my marketing degree every single day and it has given me quite an advantage. From an experience perspective, the University allowed for a well-balanced campus life. I find, when I share my school stories while on stage, I’m able to relate to audiences all over the United States. Topics like being out of the house for the first time, joining a fraternity, living in the dorms, dating, and gaining weight from eating in the cafeteria are a gold mine for comedy material.
