Jay London became a seemingly “over-night” standup comedy star as a contestant on “Last Comic Standing” in 2003 and 2004. (He was known for his “cave man” look and one-liners.)
After years of toiling away in tiny comedy clubs, it appeared Jay had finally “made it.” He earned a coveted standup comedy appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” and he traveled the country in a high paying comedy tour. All was good – a standup comedian's dream.
Now, more than ten years later, the TV gigs are gone and the tours are over. However Jay continues to relentlessly perform anywhere he can find a stage.
Over this fascinating episode filled with laughter and heart, Jay opens up about all of the unbelievable challenges he's faced throughout his entire life.
From still not knowing who raised him as an infant – to his early life of petty crime, Jay bravely shares all!
