J Chris Newberg
J Chris Newberg is funny. Ask him. He will disagree, but in a way that is probably humorous. He has performed on America’s Got Talent, but lost to dancers that sparkle. He has also been on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Kimmel Live & Comedy Central. He has toured nationally in arenas with Dane Cook, Internationally in Stadiums with Russell Peters and written songs for American Idol. He is in fact the funniest person that you have never heard of. Yet. Cedric The Entertainer agrees saying, “He has got an odd sense of humor and he is unique in his point of view. His quirkiness and his own kind of demeanor are things that can go a long way in this business. Talented folks will see it, and the industry will see it.” J Chris Newberg also writes jokes, a lot of them. Some of your favorite comedians have used his jokes on SNL, Late Night With David Letterman, Chelsea Lately and The Conan O’Brien show. J Chris Newberg recently finished being lead writer on Idiotest for GSN and is currently writing at E! He doesn’t ask you to think. He’ll do that for you. Just watch and listen and then tweet your friends and pretend you wrote it.
I was born in Virginia, started comedy in DC, aged four years, and now live in Los Angeles. I won the DC Improv Comedy Competition in 2008 and other lesser important comedy contests in VA. I soon made a name for myself as the premiere contest winner and cheater of DC. I am very proud of the peer group I started out with in DC and think they will all be comedy heros! You must feel foolish for not having seen them. I've been invited to the Bridgetown Comedy Festival twice now and picked out of 600 hundred comics to compete in the Laughing Skull Festival where I made it to the semi-finals. The webcomic that I make with my brother Clay Yount www.robandelliot.com has an awesome fanbase and has been a critics' favorite on occasion. We've been doing it for 6 years. If it were a child it would finally be of the age to realize the world is fucked up.
Jake grew up a middle class technically Jewish boy in Cape Cod Massachusetts. When he graduated high school he moved out to California to attend the Professional Golfers Career College.. (which is a real thing) there he realized that working in an environment where pleated pants where considered cool was not as great as he once imagined. Jake then attended "real" college in Orange County where he started performing stand up comedy every night. He now lives in Los Angeles and is quickly becoming a very funny rising star in the city. Jake Hosts his own podcast called Coming Up Standing, which highlights what its like starting out as a comedian in Los Angeles and how we got there. You can catch Jake every week on the Todd Glass Show, and he is a regular on Comedy Juice.
