"Ok... True story..." You've heard it at every comedy show you've ever been to. It's become a standard opening line. Well, now Jay's calling every comedian's bluff.
True story? Is it really? Jay Hollingsworth's True Story is a live show featuring comedians telling their jokes on stage followed by Jay and the comedian dissecting the comedy bit's true origins. We want to find out what the REAL story is behind the material.
Guilty by Association, Jay's guests this month are:
Jack Schaloum: A local comic who has been doing stand up at casinos and Northwest venues for over 10 years. A few of the things he takes on are; life on Mercer Island, being single, his teenage son, and world events. He has opened for Lewis Black, Daniel Tosh, Carlos Mencia, Greg Giraldo, David Brenner, just to name a few. True story, Jack has written for several major comedy TV shows and movies, none of which have ever used his material.
Douglas Gale: Douglas Gale started doing comedy in Seattle eight years ago, quickly becoming one of the newest comics on the scene. He has performed on shows with people you have heard of and many many people you have not. He is the host of a podcast called Delicious Mediocrity that dozens of people listen to every week. Douglas knows you have never heard of him but promises that you that he is very funny.
Bryan Cook: Originally hailing from the barren hellscape of rural Maine (but currently tolerating Seattle, WA) Bryan Cook is quickly finding acclaim in the comedy world. He has performed at some of the finest alternative rooms in the country, including Holy Fuck (LA), Big Terrific (NYC), The Grawlix (Denver), Pistol Party (Chicago) and Fly-Ass Jokes (Portland, OR). In addition to the 3 Seattle-based shows he produces regularly, Cook has also been featured at the Comedy Studio (Boston), Bridgetown Comedy Festival (Portland, OR), and clubs all over the Northwest. He has had the honor of sharing the stage with Nick Kroll, Kyle Kinane, Jen Kirkman, Todd Barry, Baron Vaughn, Jenny Slate, and Joe Mande, and has contributed to McSweeney's.
Kortney Shane Williams: Kortney Shane Williams was born on July of 1984 in Cleveland Ohio. The second born of four children it was obvious that he had the natural ability to entertain at an early age. Kortney moved to Tampa Florida, with his family, in March of 1994. After graduating from Armwood High School, in May of 2002, he began attending The University of South Florida. After a couple years he began to lose interest in school, and develop a passion for stand up comedy. In the fall of 2006 he began honing his skills, while performing nationwide in such cities as: New York, Cleveland, Milwaukee, and Montreal. In April of 2008 he moved to Seattle, where he now resides. Kortney Williams is determined to become the best comedian through continued diligence, and won't stop until his purpose is fulfilled.
