During Johnny Carson’s reign on late night television, one of the greatest honors for a comedian was getting Carson to laugh. In the Twitter world, it’s getting a retweet from Stephen Kruiser.

Kruiser has appeared on A&E’s “An Evening at the Improv” and “Comedy on the Road” and Fox News Channel’s “Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld” and “Strategy Room.” He’s done stand-up at dozens of clubs across the country, including The Laugh Factory in Hollywood and the Gotham Comedy Club in New York. As a proud supporter of the U.S. military, in 2010 he traveled more than 50,000 miles entertaining the troops.

In addition to his stand-up career, Kruiser hosts “Kruiser Control” on every Friday. The show is described as “a free-for-all romp through the week's most popular, obscure and occasionally, disturbing video clips as processed through the non-linear filter of Stephen Kruiser's brain.”

Kruiser is active in the conservative cause as a writer for FreedomWorks and speaker at many conservative events, including BlogCon and July’s FreePAC in Dallas. He was also one of the original organizers of the Los Angeles tea party.

This past weekend on the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live,” writers rewrote history in their opening sketch by making Romney over as a Biden-like buffoon. The real life moment of when Biden asked a man in a wheelchair to stand up was written as Romney asking a man with no arms to high-five him. If only there was a person in power with Biden-like gaffes that SNL could lampoon! While some comedians and SNL writers put ideology over truth and political correctness over entertainment, Kruiser adheres to the only rule in comedy: make ‘em laugh.
