About AJ Foster:

Originally from The Bronx, AJ Foster began doing stand up while attending college in Utica, NY and quickly became one of Central New York's most loved up-and-coming comics. He was named Funniest Comic at the 2012 Finger Lakes Comedy Festival, champion of the 2014 Unforgettable Comedy Challenge and runner-up in 2014's Funniest Person in Rochester Contest. He is a regular at the Funny Bone in Syracuse, has been featured at Gotham Comedy Club in NYC and performs at several clubs throughout NYC and the Northeast United States. You also may have seen him as a semi-finalist on MTV's Yo Momma.

AJ's comedic delivery has been described as a crossover dribble; he gets the audience leaning right with the setup and then before they know it he's crossing over left with a punch line that they didn't see coming at all. He has a unique way of taking his real life experiences and crafting them into unbelievable stories that will leave you crying with laughter. From growing up in the hood to now living in a predominately white suburban neighborhood, AJ finds humor in every situation and no topic is off limits.
