“He does not represent himself as a paleontologist.” – The New York Times

๐Ÿ“–Buy my latest book. We’re Not Worthy, at bookstores or on Amazon.๐Ÿ“–

I’m Jason Klamm (pronounced “klahm”). If you’ve heard of me, it’s probably because of the Comedy on Vinyl podcast, my book We’re Not Worthy, LA’s award-winning show A Drinking Game*, or maybe an early viral video. Also, Gore Vidal once called me a better interviewer than Ken Burns.

I’m an award-winning writer and actor, and a voice actor and podcast host. I’m one half of the sketch comedy group Dan and Jay’s Comedy Hour, which is in it’s 4th decade. As a writer, my mentors were Fielding Dawson (who once compared my work to Kafka) and Mike Newell. I’m an archivist specializing in comedy (ComedyArchive.org), andย a cartoonist, graphic designer and sculptor.

I’m a proud graduate of Upward Bound Alternative High School in Hartwick, New York, and Columbia College Chicago. I made an award-winning dinosaur video once that science really liked. I have a small sketch comedy record label, Celery Sound Records.

*I’ve played Vizzini, Rugen, Marty McFly, Hedley Lamarr, Charles DeMar, Michael Bolton, Scott Pilgrim, Shaun from Shaun of the Dead, Garth Algar and more. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of. You should see it.
