Big Jay 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. His 2009 digital-only album, "An American Storyteller," is a one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock 'n' roll hilarity.
Oakerson is often recognized from his many television appearances. He received critical acclaim for he performance as Neil, the sexually ambiguous owner of a New York City rock club, on the hit IFC show "Z-Rock." Other 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." He co-hosted "Movies on Tap" on Spike TV and appeared on several episodes of "Louie"on FX.
Jay has performed his stand-up comedy for over a quarter of a million screaming rock 'n' roll fans, hosting Jager's Korn tour and Rock Star Energy Drink's Mayhem Fest. Jay has performed multiple times at the Montreal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival.
