Hugh Moore's comedy journey began on the streets of NY where he was raised by his parents, a poor farrier and coppersmith team collectively known as the metallics.
While performing on the NY comedy scene Moore, affectionately known as "Catwoman" was an immediate stand out. His low key, deadpan, yet regal demeanor enabled him to perform regularly at the premiere comedy club The Comic Strip. Moore honed his skills at the club nightly and he wrote daily.
Working for Vibe led to him wearing normal clothing and writing on other shows such as MTV's The Lyricist Lounge Show, Fox's The Best Damn Sports Show Period and head writer on MTV's Nick Cannon Presents: Wildnout. The show that entered MooreÂ’s name into the history books for being the lowest paid head writer in the history of television. Moore continues to perform standup all over the country.
His goals are to win an Emmy award and kick Tito Santana in the head.
With appearances on TOSH.0, The Late Late show, The Smoking Gun Presents, Conan and his own half hour special on Comedy Central Jay has come a long way since he moved to Los Angeles in 2000. After flunking out of college, then finally getting accepted back after many attempts, Jay threw away his diploma to pursue a career in Stand Up comedy. After living in a condemned house for 14 months, I mean who hasn't, Jay started opening for comedy greats such as Nick Swardson, Daniel Tosh and Pablo Fransisco. He soon became known as a comedian with a whacky, original voice who tends to get a little weird. Since those early days Jay has continued climbing the ranks with multiple TV appearances, many internet short films and his first album, "Self-Diagnosed". His voice continues to grow as he has delved into the world of interacting with strangers and creating conflict with people he doesn't know. Jay is a fantastic storyteller, showcased weekly on his podcast, "The Crabfeast" on Jay Mohr's Fake Mustache Studios. With TV projects in development, be sure to catch Jay now before he ignores everyone...forever...seriously...he will.
