Minneapolis-based comedian Grant Winkels has been performing comedy since 2015. After years gigging as a musician, he finally convinced himself that he was funny. He’s been trying to convince audiences ever since. Grant pretends he’s light-hearted, but his exasperation always finds a way to creep in. He can be seen performing at the Comedy Corner Underground in Minneapolis, Laugh Camp Comedy Club in Saint Paul and Rick Bronson’s House of Comedy at the Mall of America.
Grant has appeared in the 10,000 Laughs Comedy Festival in Minneapolis and Sno Jam Comedy Festival in Sioux Falls. He performs all over the Midwest and has opened for comedians such as Matt Braunger, Brad Williams and Mary Mack. He hosts the monthly showcase, Tornado Room at the Tilted Tiki in Stillwater, Minnesota. He was a Semi-Finalist in the Funniest Person in Minneapolis Contest and has performed in The Fearless Comedy Die Laughing Festival in Minneapolis.
