While 2020 was a challenging year for the entertainment industry, it did not stop aspiring comedians from pursuing their dream. On the contrary, it even pushed them to be more daring and creative.
Judging by the new talent coming into the scene, we’re hopeful for the future of stand up comedy. And to better showcase this, in this article, we will present you with 5 up-and-coming comedians that are ones to watch in the industry.
Stand-Up Comedy from Jasmine Ellis
In the early 2010s, Jasmine Ellis was working as a radio show host in Austin, Texas. Through the show, she interviewed many professional comedians who would share their knowledge about the industry.
Eventually, all the know-how and confidence gained would push her to take a shot at doing comedy gigs herself. Jasmine never looked back on this decision, and in just a few years, she would go from open mic nights to having her comedy specials.
On stage, Jasmine has an expressive personality that compliments her sardonic sense of humor. If you have an office job, the chances are that Jasmine’s stand-up routine will hit very close to home.
Sometimes, the most influential stand-up comedy is the one that’s upfront and unhinged. And when it comes to telling unfiltered stories, comedian Landry is unmatched. You will hear some of the most unbelievable stories with him on stage, told in vivid details.
Audiences love Landry for the charismatic persona that he exhibits in front of the audience. He’s very expressive and never backs away from laughing at his own jokes, which show how authentic and passionate he is about comedy.
Kabir ”Kabeezy” Singh is perhaps one of the most intrepid up-and-coming comedians you will ever get to see on stage. His energetic attitude is supported by a cartoony sense of humor and maniacal stage presence.
Kabir’s off-the-cuff brand of stand-up comedy has made him an audience favorite and a household name on many comedy festivals across the country.
Among the many young comedians that have stepped into the industry in recent years, Kabir is one that you should look out for.
There is comedic value in the day-to-day actions that we perform. Some of the best stories told by up-and-coming comedians are, in fact, retellings of similar situations that we’ve all been through.
Observational humor is the art form that takes an otherwise unassuming story and amplifies its funnier aspects. Caleb Elliott is a great observational comedian, adept at mixing comedy with criticism about the day-to-day matters that we all go through.
His skills as a storyteller can make even mundane occurrences sound thrilling and captivating to the audience.
Audiences are always appreciative of up-and-coming comedians that come with fresh new takes and ideas. Even if a story doesn’t present itself first to be too interesting, a good comedian can turn it on its head and make it very exciting to hear.
LeClerc Andre has a talent for telling funny and highly relatable stories. You wouldn’t think that his time working at a fast-food restaurant would make an exciting story.
However, with his allure and slick sense of humor, he can grab people’s attention and sell them an entirely worthwhile story.

The new generation of comedians brings much variety to the stage and many new ideas to explore. Yet, behind each of them is an indication that stand-up comedy has truly evolved over the years and is more accessible and multifaceted than it has ever been.
