For the last 12 years, comedian Aaron David Ward, from TV’s “The Glenn Slingerland Situation,” has entertained audiences from New Hampshire to California by getting them to laugh and think at his self-deprecating, socio-political, and culturally critical comedy. He opens his heart, mind and soul to fans during each trip deep inside his mind for a funny, honest and twisted look at his concerns, disappointments, doubts, fears and worries.

Show attendees get to see a tug of war between the emotional and intellectual brains when Ward is onstage. He has performed throughout the Northeast and Midwest, appeared in the Boston Comedy Festival, Plymouth Rock Comedy Festival, Cape May Comedy Festival and in several movies including “What I See In The Dark” and “Aftermath,” as well as a pilot for MTV and VH1 entitled “The List.”
