Ian Fidance is an offbeat yet upbeat New York City comic from Wilmington, Delaware who’s been described as a “power act” by Dave Attell. Nikki Glaser has said he’s “on a short list of people who have made me pee laughing,” and radio legend Ron Bennington has called him one of the most unique comics working today. His comedy has been described as “bizarre yet funny” by comedy news site The Interrobang, and he’s been written about in Forbes Magazine, Slate.com,
and the New York Times.
Fidance can be heard every week on SiriusXM Comedy Central Radio’s “You Up? With Nikki Glaser” and is a popular guest on the Jim and Sam Show as well as the Bennington Show, both on SiriusXM radio. He performs nightly at the iconic Comedy Cellar in the heart of New York City’s Greenwich Village.
He was on the second season of “This Week At The Comedy Cellar” on Comedy Central, hosting the show 6 times. He has a co-starring role on the upcoming season of “The Last O.G.” with Tracy Morgan on TBS and Netflix. Recently he was a contributing writer for the new season of the Comedy Central show “Crank Yankers,” and the Comedy Central Roast of Bruce Willis. This past summer he opened for folk rock legends The Lumineers in Brooklyn and appeared in the short film “Motherstruck” directed by Cynthia Nixon and produced by Rosie O’Donnell, which premiered at the TriBeCa Film Festival. He’s been featured in the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, as well as the Boston, Brooklyn, and New York Comedy Festivals. He’s written & performed in sketches for Comedy Central, Above Average, Conde Nast, Elite Daily, and Funny or Die.

After working a million jobs while growing up an only child to a single mother in Delaware, Ian has grown to be a live force and a stand out stand up with a fresh, positive voice in comedy. He can be seen nightly riding his bike(cycle) everywhere sharing his unique point of view and wild stories at places like Caroline’s on Broadway, The Comedy Cellar, New York Comedy Club, Stand Up New York,UCB Theatre, the Creek & the Cave, Union Hall, and The Bell House in Brooklyn. Every month he hosts a live stand up & animation show called “Picture This!” at Union Hall in Park Slope. He’ll hit the road often playing clubs and independent venues all across the country, but will usually use his car for that.
