Rion Evans

This nationwide sensation of comedy was recently featured at "Just For Laughs" a comedy festival in Montreal and Kevin Hart's "LOL Network".  He's also featured on BET's "One Mic Stand" and selected as one of the first few comedians for the breakout new show "Off The Chain", Bounce TV's number one show.  Rion Evans' comedic talents are described as natural and unique leaving no audience unlaughed.  In 2017 alone, Rion has performed for countless charitable associations such as "Meals On Wheels", "Cancer Survivor Reunion", "Homeless Outreach", and "KYGO Christmas Crusades For Children". Rion Evans has headlined at the nation’s top comedy clubs, but between comedy dates Rion gives his talents to commercial/theater acting and voice over jobs as principal characters for many respected companies such as "Chili's", "BroadwayHD", "Advanced Auto Parts", and "Mars/Wrigley".  In 2018, Rion also starred in three films, "Vincent Makes A Decision" and "Shot Clock", both of which are highly anticipated at the "Denver Film Festival".  Rion won BEST ACTOR in the global film festival, FILMAPALOOZA for the 48 HOUR FILM PROJECT'S "Carrier" which also won BEST FILM. 

Rion has written for the late night talk show, “The Mo’nique Show” and the comedic hit from BounceTV, “Off The Chain“ to help round out his resume.  Rion also keeps great company in stand-up, working with big names such as Kevin Hart, Henry Cho, and Mo'Nique who featured Rion as a guest on her hit late night talk show .  The overwhelming response from that appearance spawned a self made comedy tour called "The Pop Up Tour" covering over 30 states and 100's of cities to shorten the distance of television for his fans.  Yes...Comedy Is Back...and if you haven't had the opportunity to share in some laughs with this wonderful talent do so, or like Rion always says "Laugh Wit'cha Later.."
