Rahn Hortman never thought that one day seasoned veterans of comedy would give him personal praise for his own stage show being "refreshing" and "a departure from the norm". But fittingly, nothing about Rahn's journey to the world of stand-up comedy has been normal. Born September 27th in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Rahn credits his 5th Grade Teacher as the first to nurture his natural urge to entertain. Impressed by Rahn's good grades, but frustrated by his penchant to distract classmates with his jokes, the comedian-in-training was granted the last fifteen minutes of class to do "his show" as long as he composed himself during the first forty-five! "From there I was hooked", he says wistfully. 

Rahn credits the earliest influences to his humor to Bill Cosby and Martin Lawrence. Bill Cosby's ability to tackle diverse subject matter without uttering a single curse word, and Martin Lawrence's natural gift of representing the "ordinary guy" combined to form the foundation for Rahn's vision. What resulted is a unique blend of profanity-free banter, with pointed observations about everyday people that leave no one safe. 

Since relocating from Milwaukee to Tampa, Florida, Rahn Hortman has become a crowd-favorite at comedy hotspots such as The Improv and Sidesplitters. He is the champion of the W-MOR TV Channel 32 Comedy Challenge, and finished first out of seven finalist in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Jokers Wild Contest. 

Rahn spends his time away from the stage with his wife, Tynise. They have four children: Rahn Jr., Ryan, Raylon, and Rionna, whom all pray that the next child will be sponsored by the letter "S"!
