Dillon Stevenson is a 26 year old comedian and writer from New York. He’s performed stand-up at New York Comedy Club, Comix, Broadway Comedy Club and Gotham Comedy Club and other venues in NYC, as well as MCing a party or showcase here and there. As a co-founder of the comedy group G.R.I.T.S. he’s written, directed and performed in sketch shows off Broadway and at benefits and events throughout the city.
Although he is a self-professed “shy guy” and introvert Dillon has performed his entire life. As a professional infant, Dillon wowed audiences playing a baby in a Pampers Diapers commercial. The pinnacle of Dillon, child actor, reached its crescendo when he secured the recurring role of a “kid” on Sesame Street (Dillon claims to this day that he TOTALLY beat Grover in Simon Says). Good Morning America’s Joan London was quoted as marveling, “Look at little Dillon go” as he chased balls around on camera for a riveting story on babies who chase balls. As a teen in high school Dillon had his own ensemble variety show “Spit It Out” that was shown weekly on New Jersey Public Access Television. His career in rocket science was cut short by a need to beat Final Fantasy 7 on multiple occasions. Now as an adult, he’s conquering the worlds of sketch and stand-up comedy. Who knows? Maybe diaper commercials again as a senior citizen.
A graduate of St John’s University in Queen’s NY, Dillon studied television production. Always needing to be seen as unique & original he began calling himself “The DiLLon”. No one else followed suit. In college he acted in various student films & stage shows. After getting his bachelor’s degree in communications, interning and ultimately being hired at a 24-hour news network, Dillon’s need to perform wasn’t fulfilled. Turning to writing, producing & performing in video skits for his YouTube page sufficed for a while. However it was taking a chance & accepting a friend’s offer to perform in a stand-up show that finally did the trick.
Living the broke life on your own & chasing the dream of being a standup comedian while discussing, life, hip-hop, and the downside of dating mermaids might not seem like the best life, but it’s the one Dillon Stevenson loves.
