Who the Hell Am I?

Oh hey there, I'm James. I'm a queer, gender non-binary actor, stand-up comic, and Star Wars fanatic living in New York City.

BRAG: I studied theater at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts at the Atlantic Acting School.


HUMBLEBRAG: After graduating in 2009, I dabbled in stand-up and improv for 3 years, but it wasn't until 2018 that I dove in hard. 


SUPERBRAG: I have been killing it since I returned to stand-up. I can be seen all over New York's comedy scene, including Broadway Comedy Club, Green Room 42 and pretty much every Brooklyn gay bar with a stage and a microphone. I also host my own monthly stand-up show at Alan Cumming's cabaret venue Club Cumming. I am also about to hit the college circuit, starting with an hour long evening at Penn State this Fall.

NOT A BRAG: My mom thinks I'm too soapbox-y in my stand-up at times, and one veteran comic recently e-mailed me to say my material doesn't have enough "JOKES" (all caps).
