“That boy’s gonna be on TV one day.”

At the age of four, Tristan Griffin stood still in the middle of his Grandmother’s living room for a good three to five minutes. His aunt came into the room and asked, “What are you doing?” Tristan replied, “I’m being a statue.” She then responded back by saying, “That boy’s gonna be on TV one day.”

Born in the small town of Rome, Georgia, Tristan enjoyed making his family, friends and teachers laugh. Whether it was pretending to be Kermit the Frog or Jim Carrey’s Fire Marshall Bill character from In Living Color, Tristan always had a nick (not sure if I spelled that right) for comedy. Tristan got his degree in Film and Television at the Savannah College of Art and Design then made his way to the Big Apple (New York City for the uncultured) where he studied improv and sketch comedy writing at the Upright Citizens Brigade.

Tristan is now a member of the sketch comedy team The Charlies who were winners of the Arena Sketch League Competition in 2011 and performed at Chicago’s Sketchfest 2012. He also performs monthly at the Stand Up NY with the sketch comedy group Uptown Girl.
