ABOUT OUR HEADLINER
Ateh Ekinde is an up and coming Minneapolis comedian who found his love for the stage in 2019 and has been quickly rising in the Twin Cities comedy scene ever since
Ateh Ekinde could be a doctor right now.
The 30-year-old was on course to enter medical school roughly four years ago, until a chance encounter with stand-up comedy changed his trajectory.
“When I was young I thought I really wanted to be a doctor,” Ekinde says. “Around 2019 I was trying to get into med school and sort of realized like, I’m not sure this is for me. I did my first open mic at Acme Comedy Company around that time and it went very well, and I was just like, ‘Oh, this is what I want to do.’”
Of course, telling mom and dad that you’re switching careers from doctor to aspiring stand-up comic isn’t necessarily a conversation that many parents dream of.
“It was tough because my parents had never really seen that side of me,” Ekinde continues. “They never saw that I had this joker or creative side. So I think the combination of that and the thought that I was just running away from medical school – which I was – gave them a lot of anxiety. But even though they may not have always believed in it [comedy], they always supported me.’”
Ekinde has come a long way since then, regularly featuring at clubs all over the Midwest, and opening for Brendan Gay on the road.
