From the moment he steps on stage, Sid brings the term “Laughter is Contagious” to a whole new level. Everyone’s talking about this rapidly emerging talent! And these are just a few of the things they are saying . . . • "...Hilarious and original! Sid Davis is one of America's emerging comics....a truly underrated comedian...Sid is the real deal!!" Director Jonathan Flora, Walt Disney Studios • "Mr. Davis takes everyday events and turn them into comic literature..." Author Steven Kunes • "....Davis hit the audience with both barrels of brilliance!..." SLO Comedy Festival You may have heard Sid on Bob and Tom and seen him on Comedy on Demand or Comedy TV.

“This former airline worker hilariously unloads side-splitting baggage on stage. Sid’s humor is fueled with A.D.D., a wavering ego and a grade school teacher wife who views him as a child left behind!”.

The WID Is a very funny veteran comedian who uses props. he is known nationwide and has worked with everyone from Bill Hicks to Jonathan Winters. He has been seen on Comedy Central to ABC, Showtime, HBO. “There’s a method to my madness,” says prop comic The Legendary WID. “I’m not overly anal about it. I try to make it a little bit organized, but also a little bit unorganized. Sometimes the charm of the joke comes out in the disorganization. There are different dynamics. Sometimes I strive to make it hard for myself and go to the audience, ‘Well what do you want me to do?’ , and improv on that. It’s very satisfying as a job. I can’t imagine doing the same thing over and over again. I’m a little bit too hyper for that I guess.”
There are a few select individuals who have the honor of being considered a Philadelphia institution. The Legendary WID is most definitely one of them.
