Big Jay Oakerson’s ‘An American Storyteller’ Album to be Digitally Released by COMEDY CENTRAL Records(R) on July 21

Comedian Big Jay Oakerson comes to COMEDY CENTRAL Records with his new full length, digital-only album, “An American Storyteller,” released on July 21.

Oakerson’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 June in 2008, is a one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock ‘n’ roll hilarity.

Comedian Oakerson has emerged as one of the most sought after attractions in the industry. Only a seven year veteran, a youngling in the world of stand-up, Oakerson 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” in Aspen, CO.

Oakerson is currently starring 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” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn,” multiple appearances on BET’s “Comic View” and P. Diddy’s “Bad Boys of Comedy” on HBO. Oakerson can also be seen hosting Spike’s “Movies On TAP” with Patrice Oneal.
