About Jake

A self-confessed raconteur of weird stories, it's no wonder that Jake Johannsen is one of David Letterman's favorite comics. With over forty Letterman appearances under his belt (not to mention a handful of Late Night with Conan O'Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Politically Incorrect gigs) Jake is no stranger to late night television. His late night appearances gave Jake the exposure he needed to land his very own HBO comedy special, This'll Take About An Hour. Jake received incredible reviews, strong ratings, and a Cable Ace Award nomination for Best Writing in an Entertainment Special. People Magazine rated the special as one of the "ten best television shows of the year," and TV Guide named it one of the "50 Funniest Moments of TV." Other TV appearances include Chelsea Lately, and The Daily Show with John Stewart. Jake is also making his mark on the feature world. Jake appeared on the big screen next to Bruce Willis in the Alan Rudolph film Breakfast of Champions. Jake first worked with Rudolph on the film Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, in which he costarred in.


Jake's bizarre take on life and his uniquely intelligent style have made him a regular at comedy clubs all over the country and a former host of Comedy Central's Two Drink Minimum. Jake has had numerous television appearances as well as his own Comedy Central 1/2 hour special. His latest Comedy Special entitled "I Love You" airs on Showtime.
