Jason Brendel is an author, poet, and comedian from Northern California. His love for making people think and laugh is only rivaled by his own love to think and laugh. He finds joy in the simple things in life like comfortable chairs, the tap water at his father’s mountain house, and people who get really upset at him on Facebook.

His debut collection of satirical poetry, Not Your Average Sonnet, is available now on Amazon.
