Bio: In 1984, Kurtis began his comedy career at the Comedy Store in Hollywood, later appearing and touring with Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, Adam Sandler, Judd Apatow, George Lopez, Jeff Cesario, Jim Carrey, Bob Goldthwaite, Rodney Dangerfield, Janeane Garofalo, Alonzo Bodden and Mark Lundholm, among others.
Fourteen years of full time touring as a stand-up, appearing on national television, numerous radio shows and a five-year stint in the software industry provided both the show business and corporate experience not found in any other comedy teacher. In 1999, Kurtis founded the San Francisco Comedy College (SFCC).
Over the past eighteen years, the SFCC has become the largest stand up school in the country, training over 10,000 people to be funny with classes in stand up, improv, one-person shows and comedy writing. In 2006, HBO came to the SFCC to showcase comedians for its annual US Arts Comedy Festival in Aspen, marking the first time the network, nationally renowned for its comedy programming, scouted for talent at a comedy school. In 2006 and 2008, the Late Show with David Letterman held auditions for upcoming episodes at the SFCC, solidifying their role as the most sought-after comedy training in the country.
Kurtis is one of only two instructors in the United States, who offer the “process-based” comedy training that anyone can use to be funny. His seminars have been widely applauded by the National Speakers Association of Northern California, The Harvard Club of Silicon Valley, Laugh Lovers of Oakland, The Great American Comedy Festival and the Scottsdale Comedy Festival.
As well as being a great comedy teacher Kurtis tours the country working corporate gigs, conventions and rehabs. He can also be seen nationwide in 2018 as talent in the Addicts Comedy Tour.
