Scotch Wichmann

SCOTCH WICHMANN is a writer, comedian, performance artist, actor, and filmmaker whose madcap riffs about his trailerpark childhood, neurotic delusions, and Hollywood obsessions spurred the San Francisco Chronicle to describe him as “like eating and snorting drugs.”

A two-time finalist in Northern California’s largest comedy competition, he’s a regular feature and host at comedy clubs across the country, keeping audiences rolling before national headliners like Bill Burr, Barry Sobel, Laurie Kilmartin, Eddie Brill, and many more.

Scotch got his start as a performance artist in the early ‘90s, launching himself into the underground L.A. performance art scene with his debut pieces SNORTING MOUSE FUR and HAVING A BALL: ONE TESTICLE’S PUPPET SHOW. His live work continues to be featured at galleries and art venues like the L.A. Museum of Contemporary Art, HIGHWAYS, L.A. Contemporary Exhibitions, the University of California, and the Edinburgh and Hollywood Fringe Festivals.

His debut novel, TWO PERFORMANCE ARTISTS KIDNAP THEIR BOSS AND DO THINGS WITH HIM—a screwball caper comedy about a pair of performance artists struggling to make it—is due for publication in Spring, 2014.
