More Information


After a series of dead-end jobs like driving around strippers and escorts, Jay Oakerson’s story-based brand of stand-up won him the Salem Orb-E Future Faces Competition (the comedy portion, that is), and he was given the chance to perform at New York City’s noted comedy club “Carolines on Broadway.” From there, the Queens resident has made comedy his full-time job, flooring audiences with anecdotal bits about ultra-macho frat boys or being too fat for karate.

Aside from regular stand-up gigs, Oakerson is currently a writing consultant and star on the IFC show Z-Rock where he plays “Neil”, the sexually questionable owner of a NYC rock club. Jay has also co-hosted Spike TV’s “Movies on Tap.” This comes after a recent spot on Dave Attell’s “Insomniac Tour” and working as a writer for “Chappelle’s Show.” Keep an eye out for Jay Oakerson’s half-hour special on Comedy Central.

While attending Rutgers University as a Journalism major, Ardie Fuqua ventured to New York City’s Uptown Comedy Club in Harlem. There he watched a lot of young guys getting laughs and thought it looked like a lot of fun, he had no idea you could make a living from it. After working just one year in comedy, he became a regular at the Boston Comedy Club, Gotham Comedy and Carolines. Since then he’s been seen on NBC’s Friday Night Videos and HBO’s Def Comedy Jam and Apollo Comedy Hour.
