Jamie Lissow’s first experience doing stand-up comedy was when he placed 5th in a comedy contest in Toronto, Canada. And there were only 3 contestants. He was hooked.
He began turning heads right away when he would yell very loudly in crowded places.
Jamie was then invited to do the Montreal Comedy Festival, in the sought after New Faces category. At the time his face was only 25 years old so it was a perfect match. The set went well, and he has since been on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show, NBC’s Late Friday, Last Comic Standing, Star Search,
and in his own 1/2 hour special on Comedy Central.
He has performed at hundreds of colleges and been nominated for Campus Performer of the Year by Campus Activities Magazine, but still swears he is funny.
Since then Jamie has been performing for sitting room only crowds all across the country.
Jamie has been heard on Sirius XM Radio, Pandora, Opie and Anthony, The Bob and Tom Show and has appeared on Fox News Red Eye over 50 times while still managing to have no political opinions.
He recently finished writing and will be starring in a television show with SNL alum Rob Schneider and is living in Austin, TX with his wife and two beautiful children (unfortunately he has 3 children).
