About Apollo Night w/ Rahn Hortman
Rahn Hortman never thought that one day seasoned veterans of comedy would give him personal praise for his own stage show being "refreshing" and "a departure from the norm". But fittingly, nothing about Rahn's journey to the world of stand-up comedy has been normal. Born September 27th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Rahn has raised four kids with his High School sweetheart. Chris Titus described Rahn's comedy as "clean but not soft."Rahn credits the earliest influences to his humor to Bill Cosby and Martin Lawrence. Bill Cosby's ability to tackle diverse subject matter without uttering a single curse word, and Martin Lawrence's natural gift of representing the "ordinary guy" combined to form the foundation for Rahn's vision. What resulted is a unique blend of profanity-free banter, with pointed observations about everyday people that leave no one safe.Since relocating from Milwaukee to Tampa, Florida, Rahn Hortman has become a crowd-favorite at all of the comedy hotspots . He is the champion of the W-MOR TV Channel 32 Comedy Challenge, and finished first out of seven finalist in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Jokers Wild Contest. He most recently was selected as one of "Nephew Tommy's "50 Comics Deep . Where he was a semi finalist.
