Rich Praytor is more than a stand up comedian. He’s an author, speaker, filmmaker and all around nice guy. He’s entertained audiences throughout the world through his art of comedy and storytelling.
Rich began his journey in the comedy world just after graduating college at the University of Texas at El Paso. He packed his suitcase and with $500, made the 12 hour trek via I-10 to Los Angeles. But after only two months in Los Angeles, he almost gave up. “I did not like LA when I first there. Every comedy club I went to was filled with disgusting humor, foul jokes and washed up actors. I didn’t want to end up that way.” Praytor pressed on, eventually meeting other liked minded funny people who were grounded in faith and wanted to make people laugh. “I prayed Lord, this desire is something you’ve put in me. Please send people my way.”
