Moulton won his first comedy competition (the 2001 Rocky Mountain Laff-Off), and later that year found himself featured on Comedy Central’s “Best of the Improv.” Moulton performs 250 shows a year around the country, including performances at comedy shrines like Caroline’s (NYC), the Improv (LA), the Laugh Factory (LA and NYC), the Comedy Store (LA), the Punchline (San Francisco) and Ridley’s Comedy Castle (Detroit).
