FEATURING- SIDNEY GANTT
It's hard to say if Sidney Gantt was born to be a comedian, but he was a middle child to a single mother and by the time he was in the 6th grade had already lived in 11 different homes... in the same town. Sidney's chaotic upbringing resulted in an unusual confidence that comes from never knowing what normal looked like. Onstage, Sidney delivers sharply insightful observational humor and revealing stories of his own social irreverence. Sidney hosts and features at Helium Comedy Club and produces his own Comedy game show, Sidekicks.
