According to Entertainment Weekly, the comedian started doing open mics in New York City as a teen and attended USC’s BFA Acting Conservatory.
He won the Laugh Factory’s Laugh Bowl College Comedy Competition in his senior year. He joked about coming out to his mom as straight after years of being raised gay. Hm.
Rudnitsky fairs better with a spot on impression of Matthew McConaughey. The cops question him True Detective style, interrogating him about every crappy movie he’s ever made ahead of that year’s Oscars. There’s a Jlo American Idol joke in there. His You Tube channel is full of stand-up videos and movie and TV parodies. Check it out HERE.
