Jamie Campbell Performance
Jamie Campbell has been a stand-out for years in Chicago’s world-famous comedy scene. With the release of his debut album, Tell Me You’re Proud of Me, on Mint 400 Records, which debuted at #1 on the Amazon comedy charts, he is making waves nationally. He has been heralded as a “bombastic genius” by Dan Telfer of Comedy Central’s @midnight. Ryan Budds, producer on MTV2’sRidiculousness, calls Jamie “one of the fastest and funniest comedians and actors I’ve ever worked with.”
A favorite on the festival circuit, Campbell was specially-selected by the sister of the late Andy Kaufman to perform in Chicago’s TBS Just For Laughs Festival. Over the past year, Jamie has appeared at the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, Austin’s Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, The Kansas City Improv Festival, The Cleveland Comedy Festival, The Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival, and The Big-Little Comedy Festival.
In Chicago, Jamie is a regular at Laugh Factory, and is a founding member of stand-up collective 100 Proof Comedy. In 2013, he was named Chicago’s “Best Stand-Up” in The Chicago Reader’s annual Best of Chicago issue.
One of the nation’s top improv performers, his recent appearance on Jimmy Carrane’s popular Improv Nerd podcast put him in the company of a veritable Who’s Who in the world of comedy, including Bob Odenkirk, Key & Peele, Jeff Garlin, and Broad City. He appears regularly at ComedySportz, The Annoyance, and with the anti-heroes of improv – The Stevens Family.
As an actor, Jamie had a stand-out appearance in last year’s indie feature Sex Ain’t Love, and recently made his network television debut in NBC’s hit series Chicago Fire. You may also recognize him from his appearance in KFC’s popular #HowDoYouKFC ad campaign. Look for his starring role in the upcoming film Bag of Trouble this fall. Jamie also teaches comedy classes and workshops throughout the nation, is a faculty member at The ComedySportz Theatre’s Training Center, and has taught festival workshops through The Annoyance Theatre, Columbus Unscripted, and at countless comedy venues and theatres across the United States. He emcees corporate events, counting many Fortune 500 Companies as prior clients and specializes in customizing comedy for private events. Additionally, you can catch Jamie’s Talk Hard podcast, the flagship show on The Rebellion Network, which releases a new episode every Tuesday, featuring interviews with interesting figures in and out of the world of entertainment!
