Big Jay Oakerson

at Zanies Comedy Night Club, Nashville TN

Sep 18 - 19
Big Jay Oakerson

Comedian Big Jay Oakerson has a new full length 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 Late Show with Jimmy Fallon and his starring role 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” — a festival favorite — and took his performance to a whole new level with the debut of his solo show “The American Storyteller.” Last year he was invited to JFL Sydney to perform at The Sydney Opera House. Jay has been a guest on WTF with Marc Maron and “The Artie Lange Show.” He is a fan favorite on “Ron & Fez” on Sirius XM and his own podcast “Legion of Skanks” is available on itunes.
