Jay's downfall in comedy started when he was voted a Finalist for Zaniest comedian in Chicago in 2008. That same year, he came in last place in the Seattle Comedy Competition. Jay lives in Chicago, and works full-time as a comedian while moonlighting as a financial advisor. His dream is to work 9-5 at offices everywhere. He's worked with such comics as Billy Gardell, Andy Kindler, and Greg Giraldo, and has entertained various divisions of the Marines, Army, Navy, and National Guard.
