Vatterott, named Chicago's Funniest Man by "Chicago Magazine" in 2010, displays his raw comedic skills in his debut album, performed live at Chicago Underground Comedy at the Beat Kitchen. In "For Amusement Only," he covers everything from the NSA listening in on his phone calls to what happens when he gets a stranger's receipt for eggs.
In 2010 The Hollywood Reporter named Vatterott one of the "break-outs" at Montreal's Just for Laughs Comedy Festival. Since then he has performed on "Conan," "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and "The Half Hour" on Comedy Central. Vatterott was also a producer/writer/performer on Comedy Central's stand-up sketch hybrid show "Mash Up." He has toured with Chicago's storied Second City and his sketch group 'Heavyweight' has performed at Second City's unhinged and the Toronto Just for Laughs Festival. Vatterott was also the recipient of the prestigious Andy Kaufman Award in 2011.
Be sure to pick up ANONYMOUS, the novel that Publishers Weekly hailed as a "well-crafted piece of experimental, voyeuristic fiction..." and "a winning jumble of the gritty, the raw, and the grotesque" at http://www.tanamor.com/p/anonymous.html.
