Lew Morgante has been performing stand up comedy since July of 2011 originally from upsate NY. He moved to Wilmington, NC in 2004 with a job; like most plans people have for life things changed and Lew was in search of a new job when a friend told him about the Nutt Street Comedy Room in Wilmington, NC. Once Lew took stage he found his passion for telling jokes and stories. His comedy can be described as self-deprecating, confessional story telling with a dash of angry rants. He co-hosts the podcast “Tell Me When To Stop”. Lew created the website PortCityComedy.com as a way to promote the local Wilmington comedy scene.
Lew performed in the 2013 and 2014 Cape Fear Comedy Festival. He has been a finalist in the Port City’s Top Comic 2012, 2013 and 2014 and the Lazy Pirate’s Last Comic Standing 2013. He has headlined shows at the Reel Cafe, Tipsy Teapot and Apollo’s Steakhouse. He has been a part of the Port City Comedy Tour. He has hosted shows at Nutt Street Comedy Room, Tipsy Teapot and The Reel Cafe. Lew has performed for several charity events.
