Comedian Big Jay Oakerson has had a massive year and it’s about to get bigger with today’s announcement that he will be the next guest on Ron Bennington’s prestigious comedy interview series, Unmasked.

Oakerson’s comedy career is exploding.  He co-hosts SiriusXM’s newest comedy/talk/radio show- The Bonfire–  on the Comedy Central channel with Dan Soder, he debuted a new television series, What’s Your Fucking Deal on Seeso, he just announced that his first hour special, Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall will premiere in June, and that’s all taken place in roughly the last year.  The New York Times called him the Master of the Dirty Joke in 2014, and we recently called Big Jay comedy’s next big rock star.

This should be an outstanding episode of Unmasked– Oakerson has been a regular on Bennington’s daily radio show show for years, and has been a fan of the show even longer.  Ron and Jay will talk about his new special, his radio show, his incredible year, and his career, on the next episode of Unmasked with   Tickets are free but expected to sell out quickly. If you’d like to attend, you can read details on how to request free tickets below.
