Aaron Kleiber has been entertaining his entire life - from climbing atop his grandmother's coffee table as a child, being voted class clown in high school to taking the stage at comedy clubs across North America today.

On the strength of his energizing, crowd-pleasing live performances, Kleiber has emerged as one of the most in-demand acts in stand up, touring alongside Bob Saget, Jim Breuer, Bert Kreischer, John Witherspoon, Josh Blue and Steve-O.  He has appeared on the #Deathsquad tour with Doug Benson, Tom Segura, Tony Hinchcliffe and Brian Redband as well as on the top-rated podcast Doug Loves Movies with Doug Benson and the nationally syndicated Bob & Tom Show.

He has opened for comedy greats Billy Gardell, Emo Phillips and Bobcat Goldthwait as well as one of his comedy idols, Sinbad.  Now, he is a bonafide headliner himself playing clubs all across the US and Canada. 

Kleiber made his nationally televised stand up debut on AXS-TV's Gotham Comedy Live in 2013; and his set was featured as part of its Best of the Season episode.  Named a Top 5 Finalist in the 2014 Big Sky Comedy Festival, he also has been named Best Comedian three times by Pittsburgh Magazine.

As an accomplished comedic actor, Kleiber can be seen in a guest-starring role on the Nickelodeon series Supah Ninjas.  He costarred in the film Help Me, Help You opposite Sabrina Bryan, appeared in the acclaimed drama Warrior starring Tom Hardy and Nick Nolte, and was featured in the original series The Mercury Men on the SYFY Network.  Seen as the face of the Pennsylvania Lottery as President Grover Cleveland, he also has appeared in numerous national and regional television commercials.

Kleiber studied improv comedy and writing at the legendary Second City in Chicago before having his first of three children.  A native of Pittsburgh, Kleiber has been a fixture in the city's booming comedy scene producing multiple shows monthly including the weekly Comedy Sauce showcase, the longest running independent comedy show in Pittsburgh, and StandUp GetDown, an original stand up comedy gameshow/party/competition now being booked all over the country.  He can be heard weekly on his hit podcast Grown Dad Business, chatting with other comedians and creatives about parenting, childhood and the comedy life. 

Opening for Kleiber will be Suzanne Lawrence.  Lawrence has performed all over the country and has been a featured performer in the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival and the Burning Bridges Festival, at the Pittsburgh Improv and is a regular at Arcade Comedy Theatre.  She has opened for headliners Chris Kattan, Shane Torres and Felonius Munk.  A graduate of West Virginia University with a BFA in Acting, and MS in Psychology, she then moved to LA with her husband where she landed a number of acting jobs, including the coveted role of "office floozy" in a network pilot before moving to Pittsburgh and diving into the world of stand-up comedy.  She lives with her husband, 3-year-old daughter and various morbidly obese pets.
