IFC recently announced that James is developing a new show for their network called THE EMBASSY. He's currently co-writing the pilot (in which he'll play multiple different characters) with Scott Aukerman (Comedy Bang! Bang!) and his company Earwolf. As a performer, James' many memorable characters appear in movies, TV, and as celebrated guests all over the podcast-o-sphere. He's a fan favorite on IFC's Comedy Bang! Bang!, and has appeared multiple times on Adult Swim's Children's Hospital and also on The Eric Andre Show. As a standup, James recently appeared on Comedy Central's John Oliver's New York Stand Up Show, was a finalist on Last Comic Standing, and spends much of his time performing to sold out crowds across the US and abroad.
