In 1999, Don Friesen won the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition. In 2005, he returned to the competition with different material and took first place again, becoming the only person to win the competition twice. His first win led to a performance on the Martin Short Show, where, immediately after his set, he was asked to change his shirt and tape a second performance in front of the same audience. The second set aired a month later. Friesen has also appeared on Comedy Central’s Live at Gotham and Byron Allen’s Comics Unleashed. His episode was later tapped for the syndicated program’s compilation Best of Comics Unleashed DVD.
Friesen’s stand-up performance DVD/CD Inexplicable, was taped at the Crest Theatre in Sacramento, CA, and released independently in July 2005. Indie-Music.com reviewed the DVD, saying, “Friesen, to put it simply, nails it. Not a single obscenity or lewd rant and he still connects.”
Don’s Showtime Special, Ask Your Mom, premiered in June of 2012. Humble, energetic and sidesplittingly funny, Friesen entertains a live audience with his physical, self-deprecating style of humor in this winning concert performance.
