KASPER NELSON BIOGRAPHY
Kasper Nelson dreamed of being a comedian from the start. A family and class clown, he grew up in his hometown of Knoxville, Tenn. In the Greenhills Housing Projects. Listening to Richard Pryor, Moms Mabley, Pigmeat Markham, Red Skelton, Bill Cosby and Redd Foxx albums and watching Flip Wilson on television, inspired by their comedic styles he’d perform routines for family members. At the young at age of 9 years old Kasper would tell jokes during lunchtime to his schoolmates at Sarah Moore Greene Elementary School.
By age fourteen Kasper had developed his own routine and was a working comic. At age sixteen Kasper, armed with a permission slip from his mother became a regular on open- mic nights at the famous Funny Bone comedy club in Knoxville Tenn. Before leaving home he co-headlined concerts, hosted practically every local talent event as well as opening for the late greats Roger Troutman & Zapp. At the end of high school he was already a veteran at getting laughs.
Seeking more opportunities he relocated to Atlanta, GA. Slaying, seven years of open-mic nights earned Kasper the respect of comedian Earthquake who booked him at both of his Uptown Comedy Corner clubs in Atlanta, GA. and soon Kasper as his opening act on tour. While on tour Kasper caught the
attention of Kings of Comedy, DL Hugely, who also booked him as an opening act. Also opening for Chris Tucker, Paul Mooney, CedricThe Entertainer, Don "DC" Curry, Jonathan Witherspoon, Monique, and Sommore, among others.
In 1997 Kasper won the Canadian Mist Comedy Competition, as well as advancing to the semi-finals at the Oakland Bay Area Comedy Competition taking second place to none other than Nick Cannon.
Executives viewing Kasper’s comedic styles were still laughing when they offered Kasper his first gig before a national audience, realizing his dream of being a comic on TV.
An unforgettable brand of story-telling made him an instant fan favorite all over America earning him a 30-minute Grand Stand on BET’s Comic View. Appearing every season his signature Blonde Beard and Mustache made Kasper one of the most recognizable comics of that time. When it seems as if he has done it all, Kasper added to his resume writing, producing and directing.
Kasper’s Kouch produced and starred in was a public access show with a Jay Leno style in which Kasper hosted, acted in skits and interviewed guests with his puppet sidekick Kissy Love snuggles. The second show Kasper produced, wrote and acted in was entitled Kasper's Raw Stand-Up featuring a variety of both new and established comedians, actors and musicians. The performances where uncensored and raw to say the least.
Launching Vision In The Clouds Entertainment with Animation, Movies, Magic Shows and other Family Entertainment, there are only great things ahead for this new and refreshing Brand. Whether its
performing for sold-out audiences or working behind the scenes, Kasper will continue to bring joy to millions of people from all walks of life.
