Burpie Presents: Comedians You Should Know, Sam Jay
Sam Jay is an American stand-up comedian and writer. She is a staff writer for Saturday Night Live and has performed stand-up on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Comedy Central Stand-Up Presents and The Comedy Line-Up. Jay’s first hour long comedy special, 3 in the Morning, was released on Netflix on August 4, 2020.
I met Sam Jay when she came to Charlotte to perform at the Comedy Zone. When comedians come to the comedy zone they normally come by the station for their press run. Sam came to the station and her energy was crazy she interacted with everyone and she even cursed on the air which was funny in itself even though you’re not allowed to cuss on the air. Anyway, with me being a student of stand up comedy, I watch and observe other comedians, Sam’s ability to tell a joke with so much aggression yet still make you DIE from laughter is just one of the many talents she possesses. Check out some of her work below.
