Stoph Edison is a funny guy. He travels around the Pittsburgh area spreading his gift of off-color comedy to droves of fans in the region. He’s often called on to Emcee events, and is one of the comedy scenes most polarizing personalities. He tells it like it is, and tells it like it isn’t. And that’s what makes Edison, Edison. Unapologetically blunt. He’s also a vegan who happens to be a jacked fitness junkie. Also, tats. (Photo Credit: Greg Neiser)
