Interview: Bryant Hicks

Courting Comedy is proud to present its first interview; our subject is Bay Area comedian, Bryant Hicks. Hicks is a figurehead of the Be Funny 365 comedy collective based out of Oakland’s New Parish and an associate of Jabari Davis and Associates. He will be headlining this upcoming Friday (3/25. 10 PM. 18+) at the Historic Purple Onion (140 Columbus Ave, San Francisco, CA). Tickets are available: here.

Courting Comedy: Who came up with the name Be Funny 365?

Bryant Hicks: Be Funny was a name that Chris [Riggins] came up with. 365, that was from me and my crew being called 365 and about getting fucked up all year round. We took now to being funny all year round.

CC: You’re originally from San Diego right?

BH: I’m from all over. I was born in Sacramento… then we moved to Virginia…then we moved to England, then San Diego, then Oregon (Beaverton), then back to San Diego.

CC: What did all that moving do to you culturally?

BH: I think, where I’m at right now, it’s definitely helped me become who I am because I had to go into places and get people to like me from the giddy-up… There was one point I moved every year for three years.
