Jamie was invited to The Montreal Comedy Festival, in 2007 and 2008 and brought his one man show there in 2010 after debuting it at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater. He was a Timeout Chicago, Sydney, New York and London’s Critics Pick. He has played the concert hall of the Sydney Opera House. Before that he lived out of his car and dropped out of high school. Take that, life!
He co-hosts Citizen Radio with Allison Kilkenny (The Nation), which is dedicated to covering the stories that the mainstream, corporate media ignores. He has had the privilege of interviewing such distinct intellectuals as Rachel Maddow, Bad Religion, Noam Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Matt Taibbi, Jeremy Scahill, Rise Against, Robin Williams, Janeane Garofalo, Moby, Sarah Silverman, Naomi Klein, Amy Goodman, Regina Spektor and more. He has also been the recipient of batshit crazy threatening letters by the hate group God Hates Fags. Good stuff.
