There is a garage located on the same block, just around the corner. Be warned it closes at 10pm. There is a $50 charge to reopen to retrieve your car. Definitely park else where.

Yes, Big Jay was FUN-EE. As a venue, I like it better than other comedy clubs that make you stand outside in the cold for 20 minutes to pick up tickets.

The show was great. Jay is a great story teller. He is so relaxed up on stage.The M.C. was great also.The
two middle acts need to work on their acts a bit.
Overall, this "EVENT" was great! And thanks to Goldstar I could afford to go out and...continued

Description

Comedian Big Jay Oakerson currently has a new full length, digital-only album, “An American Storyteller” on Comedy Central Records. 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 Stand-Up New York, is an one-hour onslaught of unbridled awesomeness and raunchy rock n’ roll hilarity.

Oakerson is recognized from many of his television appearances, most recently 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, " “Comedy Central Presents” and "Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn, " along with multiple appearances on BET’s “Comic View” and HBO’s "P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy. "

The past summers for Jay have been busy ones — he performed stand-up comedy for over a quarter of a million screaming rock n’ roll fans by hosting Jager’s Korn tour and Rock Star Energy Drink’s Mayhem Fest. Jay wowed for a fourth time at Montreal’s Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, performing on (and closing) the “Nasty Show” — a festival favorite — and took his performance to a whole new level with the debut of his solo show “The American Storyteller.” Jay was the guest on episode 255 of WTF with Marc Maron and can also be heard on radio shows such as “The Chatter with Robin Quivers” & “Ron & Fez”
