Rich Vos

Media Title

Throughout his early life, comedian-writer Rich Vos struggled with alcohol and crack addiction after a childhood that would’ve broken lesser men. Humble-yet-hilarious bits on his hard-won triumphs over an incredibly painful past—the man’s currently in his 27th year of sobriety—are now tightly interwoven through his standup routines, and why shouldn’t they be? He’s got plenty to reflect on and celebrate. Now a sought-after talent, devoted family man and proud father of three young girls, Vos’ spot-on mediations on marriage, parenting and the everyday mundane come from a position of unique expertise. His off-the-cuff “everyman” routine has garnered critical acclaim within comedy circles for decades, earning the North Jersey jokester multiple appearances on Comedy Central, including two specials and notable cameos on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.     
     
Vos’ regular contributions to The Opie & Anthony Show make his voice a recognizable one, but it’s on stage where he truly feels at home and shines brightest. His quick-witted interaction with loyal audiences is second to none, and hecklers across the country have felt his wrath like welts. Come take the opportunity to not only witness his on-stage hilarity, but have some very-cool “I was there” moments: Vos’ five performances during this week’s three-night Helium run are being recorded for his next live CD. // DANIEL GELB
