Justin performed for several years with the fast-paced improv company ComedySportz throughout the U.S. He proposed to his high school sweetheart, Natalie, from the stage of a live ComedySportz show.

In full make-up. In the summer. Good times….) Justin Worsham knew he would become a comedian as early as the first grade. While other children were dreaming of becoming firemen, doctors or parole officers, Justin filled his head with images of microphone stands, laughing crowds, and hotel perks like free cookies at check-in. And now he’s living the dream. Justin lives in Burbank with his wife Natalie and their two young sons.
