Ethan Herschenfeld is a stand-up comedian, accomplished actor, and award winning opera singer.

In addition to appearing on Girls, Boardwalk EmpireBlue BloodsThe Blacklist, High Maintenance, Power, and Damages, he's sung at the Metropolitan Opera, Carnegie Hall and Opera stages around the world. 

He appears regularly at comedy clubs in NY, LA, and across the country.

We get a kick out of finding stand-up comedians that we haven't seen before, and we hope that you enjoy these finds and laughing at their routines.

In this video clip, Ethan Herschenfeld tells about his adventures in being cast repeatedly as an ethnic thug, and how his lack of interest in American history and hip-hop as expressed in the musical Hamilton led him to create his own musical based on geometry and modern opera.

Enjoy!
