Ashley Blaker, England's sensational and multi talented comedian is bringing his indelible comedy to the Gramercy Theater!

Ashley Blaker was born in London (England) and is a stand up comedian, writer, and producer. He began his journey in comedy by doing stand up in school but didn't really pursue it further until after he finished university. He saw a job ad in comedy production and decided to go back to his comedy roots. He said in an interview, "There was an advert that said “Do you have funny bones? The BBC needs trainee comedy producers. The ‘trainee’ was kind of notional because they didn’t give you any training. You start work with a six months contract and if they like you and you can maybe bring some new business, they’ll give you a job at the end.” Even though he had no comedy writing experience, he got the job and during his first week, he bumped into his childhood friend and fellow comedian/writer, Matt Lucas. It wasn't long before he was working on the sketch comedy Little Britain and it went on to become a huge ratings success for the BBC. In 2015, he went on his first UK-wide stand up tour (titled Ungefiltered) and followed it up with his second tour (Meshuga Frum) in 2017.
