I’m Jesse Scheinman (If you couldn’t tell by the name of the website), a currently 17 year-old comic from Long Island, just outside of New York City. I started comedy when I still didn’t have facial hair way back when I was 14, and since then I have performed at world-famous clubs such as Caroline’s on Broadway, Gotham, New York Comedy Club, The Comic Strip Live, The Stand, and Governors. Some comedians who I have performed with include SNL star Darrell Hammond, Judah Friedlander, Bill Burr, and my mentor Jessica Kirson.
Although I have “only” been doing stand-up for 3 years, it’s safe to say I learnt more about the science of comedy than anything the New York school system taught me. During my time on stage you will see me create a world that is similar to your own experience as a teenager, then smash it down in a whole new way. On top of stand-up I also have two years of improvisational comedy experience with the Upright Citizen’s Brigade.
