Third Frames: Big Jay Oakerson

New York’s Big Jay Oakerson closed out the inaugural Dark Comedy Festival in Toronto on Friday night, gliding through an hour of crowd work-inspired stories and musings at Comedy Bar. If you missed the show – and chances are you did – there are already rumblings that you might soon have another chance.

Jay can be seen regularly at the Comedy Cellar in NYC, and his album American Storyteller is available on iTunes.
