Improv Addison presents Jamie Lissow
Jamie Lissow's first experience doing stand-up comedy was when he placed fifth in a comedy contest in Toronto, Canada. And there were only three contestants. He was hooked.
He began turning heads right away when he would yell very loudly in crowded places. Lissow was then invited to do the Montreal Comedy Festival, in the sought after New Faces Category. At the time his face was only 25 years old so it was a perfect match.
The set went well, and he has since been on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Late Show, NBC's Late Friday, Last Comic Standing, Star Search and in his own half hour special on Comedy Central.
