Jay was a child who was always told he had a lot of "potential" and spent most of his early years in school in gifted programs for genius kids. At 16 he discovered heroin and spent the next 9 years struggling with addiction, homelessness, and even served a little time in prison on drug charges. In 2005 he went to rehab and since has been the quintessential story of redemption and recovery.
Once Jay worked up the courage to follow his dreams of comedy he was hooked and comedy quickly became his new addiction. From observations of the world he has a general distaste for to accounts from his personal experiences there is a little something for everyone. Jay travels the country performing at comedy clubs, recovery events and even a prison here and there. In 2014 he recorded his first comedy album which can be heard on Pandora Internet Radio. In 2015 Jay won the Semi-Pro division of the Funniest Person in Cincinnati Contest. Jay is now a father in addition to being a comedian.
