Aaron McDavis is one of the prominent comics in the San Marcos comedy scene. McDavis, originally from Rowlett, Texas, is a theater major at Texas State University- San Marcos. He began doing stand up comedy in 2007 in North Dallas after meeting another comedian in one of his classes who sparked his interest in performing. “Comedy makes people laugh, and I do it because everyone seems to like it,” McDavis said.
McDavis gets much of his inspiriation for jokes from a perverted mind set. “I’m pretty observational and weird.” Some of his comedic influences include Woody Allen, Dave Chappelle, and Richard Pryor. McDavis also spends a lot of time watching comedy and reading comic books for joke ideas.
McDavis currently performs at least once a week at Open Mic Night at Taxi’s in San Marcos, but has also done many shows in the Austin area. He is also a member of the Improv group, Centaur of Attention. “One of the main things I enjoy about comedy is it makes me happy,” he said. In the future, McDavis hopes to put on shows in the Chicago area. “I think what makes me different from other comedians is that I’m more self deprecating, and I’m one of the few black comedians out there,” McDavis said.
