Blake Lensing is a comedian and writer from Little Rock, Arkansas. His love for comedy dates back to elementary school, when he would wake up at 5 a.m. to watch reruns of A&E's stand-up series An Evening at the Improv. Now he travels the country harvesting his own comedy from those early seeds of inspiration.
People often tell Blake that he looks like a wholesome youth pastor, but he’s actually a reformed accountant. Although he was crushing that desk life, he decided to pursue a new life experience and move into a 192 square foot “tiny house” on wheels. After a period of accidental self-reflection that occurred during a desperate attempt to make the tiny house interior look bigger with mirrors, he fell in love with stand-up comedy. You could say he’s a born-again comedian, but it doesn’t mean you should.
Now Blake stands behind a mic telling jokes about his unorthodox, minimalist lifestyle and the world as he sees it. Or at least as much of it as he can see out of his tiny windows. Come on, cut the guy some slack.
Blake's comedic influences include Mitch Hedberg, Chris Rock, Rodney Dangerfield, and Bill Burr. He has a varied style that ranges from witty, lighthearted one-liners to rants on the frustrations of buying tail lights at AutoZone. He's had the pleasure of opening for Comedy Central alums Mo Alexander and Cody Woods, Dan LaMorte, and Corinne Fisher. He still lives in the tiny house with his wife and high school sweetheart, Lauren, and their tuxedo cat, Daria. If you catch him performing comedy near you, make sure you say hi after the show. He likes that.
