Jay Washington is a Chicago born former professional wrestler turned Stand -up Comedian. Jay’s antics during wrestling promo’s and in-ring interviews made it almost natural for him to make the transition from the squared circle to the stage.
Jay first hit the stage at Chicago’s famous Checkerboard Lounge during their “Too Much Talent Tuesday’s” showcase. He has since worked his craft and been able to enter a variety of local and national competitions and has auditioned for some highly recognizable comedy festivals.
Jay’s quick wit, high energy, lovable personality and size make him not only impressionable but also very memorable. Jay has opened the stage for the likes of Tommy Davidson, Leon Rogers, Mark "Skippy" Price, Tim Slagle, from the movie Barbershop-Jay Deep, just to name a few and has played in clubs most notably the Chicago Improv and Riddles Comedy Club where he has become a house MC. Jay has recently been featured doing segments on various internet radio stations and podcasts which he uses to spread his humor.
