At Wiseguys Salt Lake City

“If you’re in an insult fight with a fat guy and you do fat material, you’re going to have a bad time.” ~ T.J. Wharry

Honing his incisive wit growing up in Detroit, TJ turns a verbal shank on himself on stage with his affable, self-deprecating style. Sensing he needed a change, Wharry gave up a four figure salary as a hockey scout to become a stand-up comic and trophy husband in the entertainment Mecca of Boise, Idaho. Though he’s new to comedy, TJ has already opened for Jamie Kennedy and Emo Philips, was a semifinalist in the Ventura Comedy Contest, and a quarterfinalist in the 2014 World Series of Comedy. With his natural stage charisma, unpredictable punchlines and unique delivery, Wharry is not one to miss.
