Sam Clark
Comedian - Actor - Writer - Martial Artist

Bio

Sam Clark is a comedian, actor, writer and martial artist from Denver, Colorado. He recently graduated from Harvard, where he majored in Social Studies, which is a real major and not a joke. Sam worked in the writers’ room for the Comedy Central pilot Problematic with Moshe Kasher, wrote for the 2016 CBS Diversity Showcase, performed with the Hasty Pudding Theatricals, and made videos for his YouTube channel and the internet comedy news show On Harvard Time, for which he wrote and starred in dozens of viral “man-on-the-street” and prank videos. One time, Sam ran for President of Harvard’s Undergraduate Council as a joke, on a campaign based on soup and toilet paper, and accidentally won by a lot and then resigned. A couple other times, he pretended to be a Yale student and staged fake admissions tours and prank protests of Yale athletics to make silly viral videos. His videos have accrued millions of views, and have been featured in TIME, USA Today, Forbes, HuffPo, Gawker, Business Insider, College Humor, Funny or Die, Buzzfeed, and more. He enjoys Taekwondo and occasionally dancing and singing in drag.
