Jake Johannsen, Stand up comedy, David Letterman’s show 32 times and has 2 HBO specials, a Comedy Central Special… Won the 11th Annual Stand Up Comedian Competition.
Jake also appeared in the “HBO Young Comedians Special” and on public television’s “Comedy Tonight” series. In addition, Jake hosted Comedy Central’s “Two Drink Minimum,” a series that showcased the freshest faces in stand-up comedy.
With a subtle and intelligent comedic style, Jake is quickly becoming one of the most respected comedians for his ability to give the most common element new meaning. Not many comedians will devote six minutes to a single subject, especially one as seemingly mundane as a toaster or as strange as his conviction that extraterrestrials are working among us.
Jake was nominated as “Best Male Stand-Up Comedian” for the American Comedy Awards.
His bizarre take on life has prompted critics to observe that he “conjures up some of the strangest imagery this side of, The Far Side.”
He starred in his own HBO Comedy Special titled
“This’ll Take About an Hour,” which premiered to rave reviews.
Jake also received an Ace Award nomination for best writing in an Entertainment Special for his work on “This’ll Take About An Hour.”
Other television credits include “HBO Young Comedian’s Special” and PBS’s “Comedy Tonight” series. He hosted Comedy Central’s “Two Drink Minimum” and has appeared more than thirty times on “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
Man vs. machine, extraterrestrials and relationships are just some of the eclectic themes that Jake reflects upon.
If anything is his trademark, according to Johannsen it is his longer, convoluted stories.
“I’m talking about things that everybody can relate to and I think I have my own idea of where the problem is. I don’t feel I make them deliberately bizarre.”
Johannsen has established himself as one of the country’s most prominent comedians and continues to headline across the country.
