“Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall” out June 21 on Comedy Central Records‏

If you’ve ever wanted to “take lessons from a guy who wears a wallet chain still,” now’s your chance. Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall is out June 21 from Comedy Central Records.

From the legendary New York City music venue, the man The New York Times called “a master of the dirty joke” dishes on the taboos of growing up with step parents, how to navigate “the friend zone,” and why nobody should feel uncomfortable about cringe-worthy material at a comedy show. Big Jay’s comedy is raw and honest to the core, with doses of masterful crowd work and storytelling—and plenty of dick jokes.

Philadelphia born-and-raised Jay Oakerson has risen through the ranks of New York City comedy to become a true master at the comedic arts of storytelling and crowd work. Oakerson is recognized for his numerous television appearances such as “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” and the hit IFC show “Z-Rock,” where he received critical acclaim for his performance as “Neil.” He has also appeared on FX’s “Louie”, Showtime’s “Billions,” BET’s “Comic View,” HBO’s “P. Diddy’s Bad Boys of Comedy” and Comedy Central’s “The Half Hour,” “Inside Amy Schumer,” “This Is Not Happening,” “Comedy Underground with Dave Attell” and “Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn.”

Additionally, Oakerson co-hosts the radio show “The Bonfire” with fellow comedian and friend Dan Soder, which airs on SiriusXM every Monday and Wednesday from 6:00-8:00 p.m. ET on Comedy Central Radio. He is also the host of the digital comedy series “Big Jay Oakerson’s What’s Your F@#king Deal,” the all-crowd-work stand-up show available on the NBC digital comedy platform SeeSo.

Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall premieres Friday, June 17 at Midnight ET/PT on Comedy Central and will be available on Saturday, June 18 on cc.com and in the Comedy Central App. Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/BigJay will feature preview clips from the special.
