Lamont Ferguson started his comedy career at the ripe age of 17. Having been a highly touted musician throughout high school, it seemed only natural. Lamont’s trumpet playing got him such prestigious gigs as opening band musician for Miss Ella Fitzgerald as well as various Las Vegas performances. Lamont made his first stand-up appearance at the La Jolla Comedy Store and according to him it’s been “one long war of attrition after that.” In the past 20 years he’s played everywhere from Anchorage to Yuma and all letters in between. He’s been honing his craft for all those years. “I feel like if I can provide a good living for my family doing something that I love, then in a sense I have made it…but a pay raise can never hurt,” says Ferguson. Lamont’s act is constantly evolving, changing with him as he grows. “That’s what makes Cosby so great, he’s been funny, I mean double over funny for the past 30 years!” That’s what I base my plan on. “
