Born and raised on the South Side of Chicago, EM Brown credits God, his family, and his environment for his success. EM recently earned a degree in Mass Communication with a minor in theater, and credits comedy with helping him get through college. He performed a five minute stand-up set for his first monologue audition that went so well, he’s been pursuing comedy ever since. EM hopes to continue to grow in comedy by remaining humble and being patient, and promises to continue sharing his gift as long as somebody will listen.
