Socal Stand Up Presents has been bringing the best live comedy shows to the Improv for years. Every show promises some of best up and comers plus today's stars. Previous headliners include Chris D'Elia, Adam Devine, Ahmed Ahmed, Erik Griffin, Amy Schumer, Margaret Cho and more!
Jay Oakerson currently has a new full length, digital-only album, An American Storyteller on COMEDY CENTRAL Records. Jay's story-based style of stand-up comedy got its start after a series of dead-end jobs, including driving strippers and escorts around his hometown of Philly. Now the New York City resident has made comedy his full-time job, flooring audiences with true tales of odd threesomes and bizarre sexual encounters. An American Storyteller, recorded at Standup New York, is a one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock 'n' roll hilarity.
Jay has emerged as one of the most sought after attractions in the industry. Only a ten-year veteran in the world of stand-up, he has already performed at two of the most prestigious festivals in the business, the “Just for Laughs” Comedy Festival in Montreal and the HBO “U.S. Comedy Arts Festival.”
Jay is recognized from many of his television appearances, most recently on the hit IFC show “Z-Rock,” where he received critical acclaim for his performance as “Neil”, the sexually ambiguous owner of a NYC rock club. His television credits include Comedy Central’s “Premium Blend,” ‘Comedy Central Presents, half-hour special” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” multiple appearances on BET's “Comic View” and HBO’s “P. Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy.”
This past summer Jay performed his stand up comedy for over a quarter of a million screaming rock ‘n’ roll fans by hosting Jager’s Korn tour and Rock Star Energy Drink’s Mayhem Fest.
Dan St. Germain: Dan’s a regular on Best Week Ever and has a half hour Comedy Central standup special coming out this spring. He’s been seen on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, John Oliver’s NY Standup Show, The Electric Company, and a bunch of other basic and not so basic cable shows… Don’t watch his drunken racist rant on Logo. He was going through a hard time. He’s the creator and star of the web series Kicking Dan Out featured on My Damn Channel and has his own podcast called My Dumb Friends co-hosted by friend and lover Sean Donnelly. He’s appeared as a guest on WTF with Marc Maron, as a “New Face” at The Montreal Comedy Festival, and in a Super Bowl commercial with Howard Stern. His “cat guy” joke was selected as one of the twenty best jokes about NY, a list which included Woody Allen. Dan’s album Bad at The Good Times comes out on A Special Thing Records this year. Buy it so he doesn’t have to return to a life of crime.
“St. Germain has a playful, freewheeling sensibility that sends the audience tumbling through daydreams of his design”
