Big Jay Oakerson Hitting the Road with KORN!


Comic Strip Live! favorite Big Jay Oakerson, fresh off his latest CD release (2009’s An American Storyteller) is hitting the road in support of large-scale arena metal band Korn!

Big Jay, one of the stars of the IFC hit show “Z-Rock” is a New York staple who has found a way to translate real-life stories into gut-busting laughter. With precise timing and a niche for being conversational even in the most hostile environments, Jay has found success on a national-level culminating in the release of his Comedy Central Presents: Big Jay Oakerson half hour special.

The summer swing will dubbed the Jagermeister Tour and the Mayhem Festival. Jay will host the series of shows doing comedy at the top and telling stories between the bands.
