Growing up in various small towns outside of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Gerrit Elzinga had no where else to turn besides stand-up comedy. At 14, he began writing and performing around school in classrooms and at talent shows. Upon graduating, he frequented local comedy clubs and other comedy outlets around the US and Canada. Social commentary, clever observations, and personal stories are featured throughout Mr. Elzinga's act. He has been seen on Laughs on FOX, in the Gilda's LaughFest and Laughing Devil Comedy Festivals, and recently released his first comedy album, "Perspective."
