Comedy Garden at Tangletuit: Jay Larson
- Jun 29, 2023 @ 8:00pm
Join us on the outdoor stage as John Tobin presents comedy under the stars with Jay Larson!
With the release of his first 1 hour special, “Me Being Me” (2017) Jay Larson has established himself as a mainstay in the comedy world. Jay's style is completely original and his ability to connect to an audience through storytelling is unmatched. His "Wrong Number" story went viral after climbing to #1 on Reddit and was also featured on "This American Life" with Ira Glass claiming, "Perfect Comedy, Perfect Storytelling…" And with appearances on Comedy Centrals’ “The Meltdown, “This is Not Happening”, @Midnight, his own Half Hour special, a handful of Late Night appearances including Conan four times it’s hard to miss him. But if you did you can always pick up one of his albums “Self Diagnosed” (2011), “Human Math” (2016), “Me Being Me” (2017) and you can hear him weekly on his wildly successful podcast, The CrabFeast.
Stand up called Jay to the stage and has brought him to the Big Screen in the Critically acclaimed Karyn Kusama thriller “The Invitation”. The success of the movie led to a role in the highly anticipated and long awaited second season of David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” which is currently running on Showtime and parts in the upcoming indie films “Concrete Kids” and “All Square”. While playing out the roles of amazing writers is fun Jay also loves to write his life as he goes and he went everywhere when he hosted Esquire Network’s “Best Bars in America”.
With all of these amazing opportunities the true dream for jay is where all of these things collide in his own scripted show based off his stand up. And while he’s sold two projects to Fox and NBC Universal he is still in search of the project that will allow him to put all of his creative outlets in one place. With the next creative project just around the corner Jay gets the most joy from being with his family and raising his two children.
