Kristen Toomey

Aaron Putnam

Aaron Putnam got his start in comedy while taking classes at UCB NY. He is also a graduate of David Mamet Atlantic Theatre Company’s two year program. He found out quickly that the only
drama he likes is his own, so he quit doing plays and auditioning and dove fully into improv.
This is where he learned his most important lesson to this day, and that is: to BOMB! NIGHT
AFTER NIGHT! Being the real ass dude he is, he thought it was rude to take all those innocent
improvisers with him, so he started doing open mic stand up all over NYC. That was 2011 —
flash forward to today: Aaron Putnam is a Chicago-based comic and the founder of Stand Up
in Recovery where comics put on shows at recovery centers across the country. He has
opened for Doug Stanhope, Erik Griffin, Robert Kelly, and many more. At this point you might
be saying “I wanna know about the DRAMA, the RECOVERY, etc.” The truth is on paper it’s
downright scary, but when told on stage, through a mic — hilarious.
