Comedian Jay Larson, who you know from his stand up, as well as his hit podcast The Crabfeast (with Ryan Sickler) and Esquire’s Best Bars in America just released his new hour special, Me Being Me, on Amazon, Vimeo, and his website.
Me Being Me, taped at El Rey Theater earlier this year, is a disarming and blunt account of family life, marriage, neighborhood vigilantes and more. The hour closes out with a touching and unexpected account of the passing of his estranged father and what was left to him.
You’ve also seen him on “Live at Gotham”, “The Meltdown”, two seasons of “This is Not Happening” and his own half-hour special, “Comedy Central Presents” and he’s performed on Late Night seven times. He’s written for Shaquille O’Neal’s TruTV show and ran the Fox NFL Robot, Cleatus’ twitter feed for two seasons. He’s a beast.
Watch a clip from the new hour- as Larson tells a story about running into Claude “Gatorade” Shires.
