Monty "Makes Moves" Lans is a young comedian, actor, and writer on the rise in the realm of entertainment. As a Rockland County native, he grew up in a well-diverse, loving family. Being born into a family who's relationship foundation is set upon laughter, comedic character had naturally became part of his persona. Growing up, he constantly created characters - saying/doing silly things that brought out smiles, laughter, and even joyful tears in the people that surrounded him. But it wasn't until the year 2010 when Monty realized the true power of comedy. As his mother battled breast cancer, he honed in on his gift of comedy, taking a legitimate stage for the first time at the well-known Gotham Comedy Club. After having a successful experience, Monty was sure of his new-found passion for stand-up comedy. Although being a full-time college student and athlete limited the amount of stage time he could take advantage of, Monty managed to do a few more shows, in which were all attended by his mother - aching in laughter every time. Whether on stage or at home, where Monty put no limits on his comedic expression, his mother wasn't left with too much opportunity to be depressed. By September of 2010, Monty's mother had officially beat breast cancer and credited him for a significant amount of her survival as she said, "If it weren't for you making me laugh so much, I don't think I would have made it." Those words are held closely to his heart, each and every time Monty takes the stage as he now understands that COMEDY CAN SAVE LIVES. As a college graduate, Monty has gone full throttle with his career, performing in and out of the city, winning numerous competitions at Broadway Comedy Club which include: NYC's Most Amazing New Comedian 2012, NYC's Most Awesome New Comedian 2012, and NYC's Funniest New Comedian 2012. As he continues to branch out in his stand-up career, he has also been active with acting as well - shooting a TV comedy series project entitled "RUSH CALL". As the character Devon, he serves as the comedic relief between three friends traveling on an exciting, adventurous, and funny journey hoping to transition from background extras to working star actors. Monty made his debut at Levity Live in a guest spot opening up for Christina Pazsitzky. As he continues to pursue his passion, he looks forward to spreading joy and laughter, curing the many spirits of the world one audience at a time.
