Sam Jay

Originally from Boston, stand-up comic Sam Jay is an Emmy Nominated Writer for Saturday Night Live and frequently appears in sketches. In 2018, Sam Jay was named one of Variety’s 10 Comics to Watch for 2018.

This past year, Sam made her Netflix debut on The Comedy Lineup and released her album Donna’s

Daughter through Comedy Central Records. Donna's Daughter was produced by Coach Tea and contains sporadic beats and "skit-like" interludes that make it sound as much like a hip-hop mixtape as it does a standup record. Also in 2018, Sam wrote for The 70th Primetime Emmy Awards and the MTV Movie & TV Awards. Sam’s 2018 TV credits include a recurring role on TV Land’s Nobodies and a guest star in Season 5 of Comedy Central’s Broad City.

In 2017, Sam was a standout of the Just For Laughs: New Faces. She was the host of Ricking Morty, the Rick and Morty post-show on Adult Swim and she was a cast member of MTV’s SafeWord. Sam made her late night television debut on ABC’s Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel and her half-hour stand-up Comedy Central Presents premiered in 2017 to rave reviews.

Sam was named as one of the Comedy Central Comics To Watch in 2015, and has since performed internationally at comedy clubs and festivals including the Vodafone Dublin Comedy Festival, Bumbershoot Festival, 208 Comedy Festival, New York Comedy Festival, Portland’s Bridgetown Festival, The Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival, Boston’s Women In Comedy Festival, and the list goes on…

Sam’s television credits also include a part in the award-winning film Pinsky, Starz’s Take My Wife, Comedy

Central’s White Flight, Comedy Central’s The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail as well as Viceland’s Party

Legends and Flophouse.
