first moved to Los Angeles to pursue film acting, and managed to book a few national commercials, a bad B movie, the lead in a Disney after-school special and a couple of featured roles on television. But auditions were few and far between, so Jay decided to launch his career as a professional stand-up comedian. Craving stage time, he created his own comedy night on the Sunset Strip at an Irish Pub, and it became a huge hit. Comedians from Dave Chappelle
to Dane Cook
to Rosanne Barr to David Allen Grier stopped by.
Since the closing of the Irish Pub, Jay has taken his producing skills to the world famous Laugh Factory on the Sunset Strip, where he produces, hosts and performs his comedy every week for the Life of the Party show (Laugh Factor Tuesdays, 10pm to 12:30am). One of the stars of Dane Cook's movie 8 Guys, Davis continues to tour at comedy clubs and colleges across the country, while auditioning for television & feature film roles in his spare time.
