“Hank Thompson crushes it.” — Chicago Tribune
As a stand up comedian, Hank Thompson has extensive experience with humiliating failure. After nervously uttering bullshit into a microphone for the first time in 2009, he became a fixture of the Chicago comedy scene for four years before moving to Los Angeles for a job producing and directing comedy for The Young Turks, where his role expanded to professional YouTube publishing. He has opened for Jimmy Dore, headlines local showcases and performs in shows big and small wherever he can. He’s appeared in ABC’s online Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD: Declassified — the digital companion to the TV show, and has appeared as a ‘Bald Villain’ in the adventure series, League of Steam. He has been a guest on TYTNetwork’s Pop Trigger on Hulu, What The Flick and fill-in hosted the comedy news show TYT140. Always pursuing his own projects, Hank created, produced and hosted the web-series Infinite Clicks, a news talk show that does it wrong and Taste Buds, a cooking show.
His short films Tossed and Rise are the first two of his Pizza Trilogy and were highlights of the Pizza Film Festival in 2010 and ’11. His latest short, Brothers, the world’s first adorable horror film, is an entrant in the iPhone Film Festival and was picked up by the viral video management company, Storyful. Hank created the YouTube channel SuckProfessor (5.2K subscribers) as a place to combine comedy, filmmaking, video games and talking. Recently, he’s begun producing his own animated shorts and sketches. He writes television spec scripts, original pilots and hosted the podcast The Winners & Losers Show. He looks forward to expanding his comedy career on stages and screens throughout the land.
