A regular at the World Famous Comedy Store, Don Richardson got into standup comedy as a cure for unemployment. Born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and raised in Burnsville Minnesota, Don originally moved to Los Angeles to pursue a modeling career. After suffering from sunburn in skin tight Speedos Don realized there must be a better way to make a living. A finalist in the 2005 Greater Southwest Comedy Showcase, Don is a Featured Act touring nationally. His style of comedy is best summed up as "Bill Cosby with an attitude." He has shared the stage with the likes of Chris Rock, Carlos Mencia, and the legendary Andrew Dice Clay, just to name a few. Never one to shy away from the issues, Don is able to make a joke out of everything from race to relationships to religion. His favorite topic, of course, is himself. Don’s television credits include Baywatch, The Huntress, The Practice as well as classic B-movies such as Violent by Nature and the Uninhibited. Just recently Don was named a 2011 LA Comedy Awards Nominee as the Director of the web comedy series Busted Reality.
Don Richardson's Upcoming Shows
There are no Upcoming Shows listed for this comedian.
As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
