About This Event

When the host is introducing James Frey to the stage, some might get confused and think he is best selling author, but he’s not. Although he shares the same name, one look at the comedian James Frey and you will realize he is big in Japan and huge in America. Standing at 6’5 and sporting a beard, long hair and clothes that have an outdoorsy feel, give him a memorable quality along with his comedy. “My comedy is obscure. It’s so random. I try and say things that people have never thought of,” he said. Influenced by Zach Galifianakis, Jim Carrey and Mitch Hedberg—Frey has a love for jokes, but ultimately, “It’s always been in the back of my mind, being a comedic actor and I finally got enough courage and following a passion is worth pretty much anything I can think of,” he notes. Doing stand up comedy is preparing him for being a working comedic actor, and he hones his skills at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade and the well known Groundlings Improv program. Frey has come a long way in a short time, being that he is already hosting comedy shows and performing gigs. Prior to working the stage for laughs, Frey graduated from Cal Poly but then worked as a paramedic for four years. “It was a cool job, but too serious,” he admits. “I don’t like to be serious.” His journey started out slowly but has evolved nicely. “I moved down here from San Luis Obispo and I am still finding myself, but I am pretty funny in real life, and go on stage and say things I find to be funny,” he said, regarding performing stand up comedy. He challenges some rules that others might impose. “I think if a joke is funny, you can say it anytime. I don’t take things seriously. I have a relaxed attitude about life. I’d rather just enjoy my time,” he confesses.
