Biography

Here’s the scoop: Jason was born in Wichita KS, raised in Baltimore MD, ran away to New York City and now resides in Los Angeles, CA. He has Midwest values, an East Coast attitude and a West Coast mentality.

Currently touring with Kathleen Madigan, a favorite on LOGO and the host of the annual Best Of Drag show, Jason has kept audiences laughing for over a decade. He has toured with such greats as Jennifer Coolidge, Norm MacDonald, Craig Shoemaker, Susie Essman, Sandra Bernhardt, Ants and Robert Schimmel. He has also appeared on NBC’s Last Comic Standing, One Night Stand Up, ComedyTime and National Lampoon Television. Dudey is a hit at clubs, colleges, corporate events and on cruise ships.
Jason comes from the all American family: him, an older sister and parents that have been married forever. “My parents met when they were 3 and 6 in Sunday school and they’re still together. That’s just plain weird. I felt so left out in school. All my friends had somewhere to go on the weekends, to their father’s house. I’m still looking for a weekend home,” he quips.
The son of an army guy turned insurance man and a barmaid turned legal secretary should have given him a foundation for life. Instead, it gave him a life in comedy. Throw in a hard working, never does anything wrong, sister named Sheryl and there you have it. “The older sibling is supposed to break the parents in. Do you know how hard it is when your sister had perfect attendance for all 4 years of high school? I could barely put a full week together.”

While climbing the comedy ladder and working the circuit, Jason has played every room imaginable, the gay rooms, the road rooms and has even done a PTA meeting and a bowling alley. Your sweet old grandmother will love him and even your construction worker brother-in-law will want to hear more. There are gay people in this world, it happens. Dudey says he can work a power drill but, he can also quote the “Golden Girls.

Jason is a host and producer of Come Out Laughing based at the Long Beach Laugh Factory. This show tours all over the country so be sure to see him when the bus stops in your gay or not so gay town.
