Jay Hollingsworth, affectionately known as “Big Irish Jay”, is a baby-faced giant who started his comedy career in Boston and recently introduced his unique brand of observational humor to Seattle, where he quickly became a well-known face in the comedy scene. His quick wit and high energy performances immediately relax you and make you feel like you’re sharing a beer with an old friend…a very sarcastic, hilarious, uncensored old friend. Before the bright lights and the stage captivated our mammoth hero, he supported himself by playing poker and studying martial arts so religiously he became the first person to receive a black belt and be certified to teach Modern Gung Fu. Jay was so taken with his training he opened his own Modern Gung Fu school where he taught for 10 years until he eventually realized it was much more rewarding for him to deliver punch lines then to receive punches. At 6 feet 8 inches tall, Jay stands out in the comedy world just by standing up, but also by speaking on a range of topics from martial arts to being raised by cops to being a “mutant”. No matter what the topic, Jay’s unique views will leave you rolling in the aisles. Currently, Jay is the Host and MC at the Parlor Live Comedy Club in Bellevue, Washington, the premiere comedy venue in the Northwest. He also hosts and produces the weekly “New Faces Showcase” to help promote up-and-coming comedians as well as national headliners. Jay has performed coast to coast in some of the most prestigious venues in North America including Gotham in New York, The Wilbur Theatre, The Parlor Live, Yuk Yuk’s, The Comedy Underground, The Boston Improv, Nick’s Comedy Stop, Tommy’s Lounge and the list keeps growing. He has performed at several charity events including “The Fallen Hero’s Fund”, “The Halo Network” and “The Pink Tie Breast Cancer Fundraiser.” DEMAND to see “Big Irish Jay” Hollingsworth at your local comedy venue. He is also available for private events as well as a nice pint of Guinness and some good conversation.
