Zak Toscani is a stand-up comedian, writer, and actor living in Los Angeles. Zak’s started comedy in Portland, OR but has since taken him across the U.S. and even into Canada once! Zak has performed at The Bumbershoot Music & Arts Festival, Bridgetown Comedy Festival, and High Plains Comedy Festival.

With a focus on originality and vulnerability, Zak’s comedy has been highlighted by Splitsider, Paste, and The Portland Mercury.

Zak is also a founder of Faded comedy, which is a weekly stand-up showcase every Friday night. In less than a year, Faded has become one of the best shows in Los Angeles.

As a writer, Zak’s work has been featured by the Washington Post, BBC, Newsweek, Buzzfeed, and Vice. He was even on the front page of CNN and TIME at one point. That’s actually fucking true. Their websites though. Not the magazine covers.
