Jeremy Craven is a comedian, actor, writer, (not necessarily in that order) who lives in Hollywood. Someone once called him a triple threat, to which he responded by putting a finger over their mouth and whispering "With talent like this, I only have to threaten you once."
He's not allowed in that Quiznos anymore.
He performs his unique brand of standup comedy all over the LA area, and occasionally on the road where people think he's more important than he actually is. He's been on TV, he's been in movies, he's been paid to write things. When he was growing up, I thought he'd be a speed bump, so all of this is a pleasant surprise.
