BioLamont Ferguson started his comedy career at the ripe age of 17. Having been a highly touted musician throughout high school, it seemed only natural that he would go into comedy. Lamont’s trumpet playing got him such prestigious gigs as opening band musician for Miss Ella Fitzgerald as well as Las Vegas performances. Lamont made his first stand-up appearance at the La Jolla Comedy Store and according to him its been one long war of attrition after that. In the past 20 years he's played everywhere from Anchorage to Yuma and all letters in between. He’s been honing his craft for all those years.
"I feel like if I can be happy doing something that I love, then in a sense I have made it, but a pay raise can never hurt." "Endurance, always learning and growing is the key." "That’s what makes Cosby so great, hes been funny, I mean double over funny for the past 30 years! Thats what I base my plan on. I see so many people that USED to be funny, cause they stop growing."
Ferguson has gained the respect of many in the comedy community. His act is clever, intelligent, original and insightful. A professional amongst professionals.
Lamont’s comedy role models are Bill Cosby, Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Carrey. "I admire them for the one thing they all have in common, perseverance. You cant succeed in this business without it."
From high school band member to McDonalds manager to open miker to working comic, Lamont Ferguson has stayed steady on the path to making people laugh; one that he hopes will never end.

About me:Okay, You want to know who I am and what type of comedy I bring to the table. No worries. I bring a brand of comedy that has been deemed too smart for most stages in this country. Not too smart by me, by those that make decisions. What does that mean? I have no idea. But I'm going to go with it. Just keep in mind that in Europe, I'd be average. Here in the US- I'm a freaking genius!
My comedy is honest. It's me talking about life as I see it. It can be complex. It's life experiences, it's life observations and told in the odd way that I see it.
It's serious, yet silly. It's poignant, yet trivial. It's insightful, yet somewhat Pollyanna-like. It's who I am.
A work in progress that is compiled of some bad decisions, slow maturation, and a desire to be better than I am at any given present moment in time.
That is who I am- That is what I do. If you do not understand what this means...no worries. I'm not for everyone.
If the common thread that binds the comedic passion of Richard Pryor, Bill Cosby, Franklin Ajaye, Jake Johannsen, Fred Greenlee, George Kirby, Daryl Lennox, Vince Morris, Dana Gould, Wanda Sykes, Dennis Wolfberg, Jim Gaffigan, Bernie Mac, Richard Jeni, Chris Rock, Larry Miller, Garry Shandling, Jerry Seinfeld, Brad Upton, Karen Rontowski, Paul Mooney and George Carlin is what makes you enjoy comedy and life; you might want to check me out.
I currently work 7 clubs in the US. Rest of work is in Canada and abroad, because there- I'm just a funny guy telling funny jokes- not an anomaly.
Some of you may view my clips and think- "I don't get it...that's not funny." Don't worry, it's an intelligence thing...you wouldn't understand
"You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so injured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it."
Who I'd like to meet:William Jefferson Clinton, Oprah and Barack Obama
