I'm a former computer geek who bailed out in the 80's to become a comedian.
Yes, I left my cubicle and went on to host "Comic Strip Live" every Saturday night on the Fox Television Network for
three years. I also appear regularly on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Show with David
Letterman" and "Politically Incorrect with
Bill Maher." You may also have seen me in a recurring role as a roving
reporter, man-on-the-street guy for "The Tonight Show."
Wayne Cotter is a favorite of the talk shows,
appearing dozens of times with both David
Letterman and Jay Leno. With Leno, he
also appears in a recurring role as a roving reporter for The Tonight
Show. Wayne hosted the Fox television series "Comic Strip
Live" for several years, and was seen in the feature film
"Spy Hard." He has also been nominated as "Best Standup
Comedian" in the American Comedy Awards, and has appeared in
numerous cable television specials. While touring nationally with his
standup comedy, Wayne is also currently the host of The Learning
Channel's series "Amazing America," a light-hearted look at
weird and wacky subcultures throughout the United States.
