Rufat Agayev is a New York-based comedian, writer, and actor.

Rufat Agayev wasn’t always a comedian, he started rapping in Florida, and after performing with some of hip hop’s biggest names during college he moved to New York City. After releasing two independent group projects, his hairline had receded, Rufat realized he had the skill to be a rap star but not the hairline. He heard you can do these things called Open Mics, and he hasn’t looked back since, well he did take a month off to play NBA 2k16 because his jokes weren’t that good. Now his jokes are pretty good, how does he know? because people ask him to perform at places all around New York City, clubs, bars, coffee shops. This guy is a comedian now, I think he may have found his life’s purpose or doing something he really enjoys.
