Jay Black is fucking hysterical and according to his wife, the most interesting man in the world for 5 minutes. However we got the pleasure of having him be both for a little over an hour on this episode of Dystopia Tonight.

 

Jay and I talk about the days he brought me as his opener for college gigs, his work ethic as a comedian and screenwriter, being on the road, supernatural BS, being lifelong nerds, his family life, having kids, how he got started, and more! Enjoy!

Thank you so much for listening. If you can please remember to like, subscribe, and review the podcast to help keep us going!

Jay Black left his job as a high school English teacher ten years ago to embark on a career as a stand-up comic. In that time, he's achieved an incredible amount of success. On the stage, Jay has headlined clubs across the nation, from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas to the Tropicana in Atlantic City and just about every comedy club in between. He also toured extensively in Europe as the host of the US Army's "I Am Strong" tour. He's met with equal success on the college market, performing at nearly 1,000 schools across the country, winning the "College Performer of the Year" award once and the "College Comedian of the Year" award three times. For the last ten years, Jay has done a weekly spot on WIP Radio, discussing television, pop culture, and sports. In 2009, Jay started writing screenplays with his lifelong friend, Brian Herzlinger, producing a string of successful projects from 2012's "Paulie" with Paul Sorvino, 2014's "Meet My Valentine" with Scott Wolf, 2016's "Love Always Santa" with Margueritte Morea, and the upcoming "Orchard" with Tiffani Thiessan.
