Growing up in Ohio, Sid Davis’ friends told him his ability to twist everyday events into hilarious tales made him natural to be a comedian.
He finally took their advice after leaving his airline job of nearly 20 years. He won Toastmasters International Humorous Speaking contest, and then progressed to stand-up comedy. After years of trying to find his way, Sid got a break, being accepted for the 2012 San Luis Obispo Comedy Festival. Festival organizers, who put Sid in to round out the field of comics with an older comic, were surprised when the buzz around SLO that “some guy was absolutely blowing audiences away.” They voted Sid into the the “Best in Fest” Showcase.
Sid’s performance proved not to be a fluke as he returned to the SLO festival to be voted “Best in Fest” again in 2013 and 2014.
Later in 2014, comedy legend Joan Rivers was looking for an opening act. The demanding icon entertainer and her manager viewed hundreds of audition videos. After seeing 30 seconds of Sid Davis, she pointed at her manager’s laptop and declared, “Get him. He’s terrific!”
