Theo Von grew up in the stray animal belt of southern Louisiana. He was a child there and became an adult slowly there.

He can be seen weekly on his podcasts “This Past Weekend” and “King and the Sting,” which each garner millions of listens/views a month. Twice a week on “This Past Weekend,” Von offers earnest suggestions to callers and gives his take on recent events.

He has appeared numerous times on Joe Rogan’s podcast “The Joe Rogan Experience,” regularly on Joey Diaz’s “The Church Of What’s Happening Now,” and was voted guest of the year on “The Fighter and the Kid” by TFATK listeners two years in a row. He has multiple straps.

In his 2016 Netflix special “No Offense,” this Southern charmer offers up a twisted take on his dating mishaps, meeting Brad Pitt, chasing down fugitive chimpanzees, and more.

In the spring of 2020, Von completed his two-year Dark Arts Tour, which took him across America, Australia, Europe, and another country.

He has made appearances on “Inside Amy Schumer,” “Why? with Hannibal Buress,” “Arsenio,” “Last Comic Standing,” “Live at Gotham,” and was the winner of Comedy Central’s “Reality Bites Back.”

Von currently resides in Nashville and Los Angeles. If you want to know how he is doing, he is probably doing the best he can, which varies.
