Growing up outside of Dallas, Texas, Jay Light had to sneak late-night viewings of Comedy Central and Adult Swim with the volume turned low. His parents would not have approved. Today things have come full circle: He’s appeared on both seasons of Comedy Central's insult competition Roast Battle, been named a “local eclectic noise maker” by L.A. Weekly, and praised as “one of the best Roasters in Los Angeles” by no less than Comedy Central mainstay Jeff Ross.
Self-deprecating, slyly dark, and always eager to subvert audience expectations, Jay is a regular performer at the famed Sunset Strip institution the Comedy Store. Onstage Jay may look like the clean-cut, naïve boy next door, but as crowds quickly learn, he doesn’t shy from discussing his sheltered religious upbringing or the formative lessons learned along his path to sobriety.
Jay and [co-headliner] Stephen Agyei put on great performances and kept the energy high! The students in attendance definitely enjoyed it, and I’m sure they enjoyed the intimate experience since both comedians interacted with them onstage.
Thanks so much to Luc and Brian for all your help!
