After graduating from The University of Cincinnati with a degree in drama, Parker moved to Los Angeles to persue stand-up comedy and tanning. He began his comedy career at age 18 with his stand-up comedy debut at a "free expression" open mic, where he followed a folk poetry group called "Leaf". Since then, he has performed in New York, Los Angeles, Dallas and in the bustling metropolis of Cincinnati, OH.
Parker has been involved with several horribly named improvisational and sketch comedy groups. They include, The House Band, The Angry Bacon, Supple Puppy, The Notebook of the Travelling YaYa Sisterhood and The Dads of Comedy.
