Comedian Big Jay
Oakerson currently has a new full length, digital-only album, "An
American Storyteller" on Comedy Central Records. Oakerson's
story-based style of stand-up comedy got its start after a series of
dead-end jobs, including driving strippers and escorts around his
hometown of Philly. Now the New York City resident has made comedy
his full-time job, flooring audiences with true tales of odd
threesomes and bizarre sexual encounters. "An American Storyteller,"
recorded at Stand-Up New York, is an one-hour onslaught of unbridled
awesomeness and raunchy rock n' roll hilarity.
Oakerson is recognized from many of his television appearances, most
recently on the hit IFC show "Z-Rock," where he received critical
acclaim for his performance as "Neil," the sexually ambiguous owner
of a NYC rock club. His television credits include Comedy Central's
"Premium Blend," "Comedy Central Presents" and "Tough Crowd with
Colin Quinn," along with multiple appearances on BET's "Comic View"
and HBO's "P. Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy."
The past summers for Jay have been busy ones: he performed
stand-up comedy for over a quarter of a million screaming rock n'
roll fans by hosting Jager's Korn tour and Rock Star Energy Drink's
Mayhem Fest. Jay wowed for a fourth time at Montreal's Just for
Laughs Comedy Festival, performing on (and closing) the "Nasty Show" and took his performance to a whole new
level with the debut of his solo show "The American Storyteller."
