Cam Bertrand joins us in Episode 28 of NICE WORK! In learning about Cam and his path, we’ll take yet another look at someone who has turned their passion into a successful career.
Cam started going after comedy and writing full time at the age of 19 and immediately advanced to the Semi-Finals of Florida’s Funniest competition. He then went on to win the Side Splitters Comedy Tournament beating out 64 other comedians. and ended up becoming the youngest comedian to record his own DryBar comedy special (check it out on the YouTube where it has over 8 million views).
He has performed at some of the most prestigious comedy festivals in the country including the Laughing Skull festival in Atlanta (twice), Laughing Devil in New York, and The World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas. In 2018, Cam was a contributing writer on Seasons 11 & 12 of MTVs hit show, ‘Wild’N Out’. In 2019, Cam Bertrand became the youngest comic to win the Florida’s Funniest competition, beating out over 300 comics, previous winners include Daniel Tosh, Bert Kreischer, and JB Ball. Cam has already worked with some of the biggest names in comedy today including: Joe Rogan, Andrew Schulz, Bert Kreischer, Pete Davidson, Hannibal Buress, Michael Che, Josh Blue, and Mike Epps. But here’s the thing, at such a young age, he’s already mentoring the next generation of comics…. which says so much about the camaraderie and support found within the hyper-competitive comedy industry. Paradoxical? Nah.
