Zack’s first performance was a solo rendition of “I’ve Been Workin on the Railroad” in the 3rd grade. He killed. And though there wasn’t a dry eye nor dry pair of pants in the house, Zack craved something more. Nine years later he performed impressions of teachers at his high school pasta dinner. Again, the crowd was completely drenched in liquid remnants of overwhelming astonishment (some say it was the pasta). Three years later, he tried stand-up. I’ll give you one guess: friggin’ obliterated. Then he left home to grow weed with his father... turned out Zack wasn’t great at everything. So he returned to San Francisco to pursue stand-up and to go to college so his mom would stop crying.
While in college, Zack was a semi-finalist in the TBS National Comedy Competition, the San Diego Comedy Competition and runner-up in the Central Valley Comedy Competition. He has since established himself as a prominent comedian in the Bay Area. He is a regular at San Francisco’s Punchline and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Zack co-wrote and starred as “Todd Olsen” in the Metacafe series “PausePlay”, and has opened for Chris Hardwick, Phil Hanley, Mark Normand, David Huntsberger and Baron Vaughn.
