ABOUT ME

Bio:

Drew Lynch was an eager young actor and a classic “chatterbox”, notorious for talking a mile a minute. Born in Indiana and raised in Las Vegas, he graduated from the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts with aspirations of becoming a fully articulate film actor. Then something unimaginable and completely unpredictable happened; at only age 20, during a company softball game, Drew got hit in the throat with the ball causing his vocal chord to paralyze, turning his chattering into stuttering. This life changing injury sparked a passion for writing and performing Stand up Comedy, bringing to life the social hardships of dealing with a newly-found speech impediment. Inspired by the comedy of Louis C.K., Dave Chappell, and the up and coming Samuel J. Comroe, Drew is on a mission to make you laugh.

  1. Caught your act when I took my sister to Claremont Flappers. She thought it was so amazing that you could pretend to be a stutterer. She swears that after the show she spoke with you and you didn’t stutter once. Whatever, why would someone pretend to have a disability from a softball injury to the throat? I have too commend you. Sometimes the audience just doesn’t get it. I am a comedian who used to be very thin and now I am not. I have been shunned by comedians that I went to school with twenty years ago in Orange County. People see who they want to see. Would it be hilarious if you tried to make this shit up? Drew, there is a lot of ignorance out there. You are educating the masses. You are a shining star. Thank you.

  2. I was scrolling through Facebook, and on this page I follow, a 9 minute segment of your comedy routine popped up. I watched it, and I was almost in tears.
    I have stuttered since I was a child, and I still have periods of months where things get difficult. I have not learned to laugh at myself yet, but I hope that I get one day because some times it is just difficult when I can’t say what I want to because I get stuck on words and then get embarassed. You have inspired me. Today, I was made fun of by a friend who didn’t think before they started mimicking me, and it really hurt. And I can’t even say that I want lettuce on my sandwich to the people behind the lunch counter. But then I saw this, and I feel better. I have never met another stutterer, and so seeing you up on stage made me feel like I wasn’t alone. Thank you!

  3. Drew, you don’t need me to sit here and type a bunch of things you have already read, multiple, and countless times. So I won’t. Ill simply just say, take it away and be nothing but you. Take a look at my website, and let me know what you think.

  4. OMG! You’re simply brilliant!
    I saw a clip from one of your shows on a swedish newssite(feber.se) and nearly laughed my a** off!
    It’s so clever to integrate your studder in the act.
    Please, keep up the good work and don’t ever let condescending people get to you! You rock!

  5. I saw you for the first time at Flappers on New Year’s Eve 2013-2014, I thought you were so brave. But I saw you last night in Hermosa Beach and think you are so funny, still brave but now mostly funny. You had both me and my friend laughing, especially when you said that the comic following you would think her DVD was skipping when she sees your intro. I’ll look forward to seeing you again and really appreciate how you’ve made it less uncomfortable to be with someone with a speech impediment and okay to listen and laugh along. Thanks Drew…you really are a funny comic and quite adorable…if that’s okay to say. :)
