Best up-and-coming male comedian: CAM BERTRAND

Best up-and-coming male comedian

At just 22, Bertrand has already won comedy competitions and become a regular on local stages. With a cadence that recalls Chris Rock and a stage presence reminiscent of Pete Davidson, the Brandon High grad spins relatable stories and premises (and sometimes random thoughts that snuck into his head) to audiences who come around to his point of view in short order. If comedy really is a lifetime passion, Bertrand could be honing his set for the next half-century. —Michael Murillo
