“Clever, sarcastic and enlightening” are what audiences are saying about Las Vegas based comedian Guy Fessenden. His comedy deals with the everyday challenges that we experience in our lives with a humorous and positive outlook.
Following a very difficult period of helping some of his children deal with a significant mental health disability, Guy felt overwhelmed by the sadness of seeing his children and family in pain, as well as the challenges that one sees in psychiatric hospitals. In a recent interview, Guy said, “After 20 years of watching and experiencing some of the most painful parts of life, I would like to put a little humor back into the world”.
Fessenden is a regular performer in Las Vegas and periodically tours the country. In addition, he provides motivational speeches about overcoming obstacles and the importance of remaining positive through all of challenges that we experience in our lives. Furthermore, Guy and his wife, Stephanie, run a not-for-profit agency based in New York that help thousands of people with mental and physical disabilities to connect to housing, benefits, legal and medical services.
Guy Fessenden has spent most of his life as a father and entrepreneur. It wasn’t till a later stage in life, once the things that one “has” to do were taking less time, he pursued the things that he “wanted” to do, specifically comedy and motivational speaking. When he’s not on tour, you can catch him perform regularly as the house emcee at Delirious Comedy Club in Las Vegas.
