Description

Here’s the breakdown: Start with a subtle and intelligent comedy style, add four cups of convoluted stories, lightly stir with bizarre observations and add a pinch of dementia for Johannsen Strudel.

One of the finest and more cerebral comics around, Jake is a regular on David Letterman with over forty appearances and he has been on “The Tonight Show” more than ten times. His HBO special “This’ll Take About An Hour” was critically acclaimed and earned Jake an Ace Award nomination for Best Writing in an Entertainment Special.

So come on down for a heavy dose of Johannsen Strudel. With a name like Johannsen you KNOW this guy can make some serious strudel.
