Jay Black is the perfect example of living out one’s dreams. Quitting a stable, decent-paying job to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian, Jay was able to satisfy an itch he had since he was a little kid living in South Jersey. Today, rather than watching others make people laugh, Jay is the one up on stage. And, honestly, he’s loving it.
Jay’s comedy origins–Comi
ng from a family of funny people, Jay always thought himself funny as well. Though, he admits, he was more obnoxious than humorous. He didn’t think he would do anything with this talent until he saw Bill Cosby Himself on HBO. After watching that concert film Black said “whatever that guy is doing I want to do.”
Jay’s comedy heroes–In addition to Bill Cosby, Jay is a fan of comics like the late Richard Jeni and Chris Rock — a person, Black revealed, he worshiped after the release of his 1996 Bring the Pain special. Other favorites of Black are Greg Giraldo and Chris Titus. On working with Titus, Jay said he was “min
How he began his stand-up career–While working as a teacher in South Jersey, Jay started doing open mic nights to impress a girl who eventually became his wife (“she was Major League Baseball, he was girls’ Intramural Cricket,” he quipped). He also did it to get the stand-up bug out of his system. Problem was, they kept asking him back. Soon enough, he was getting paid more for his comedy gigs than he was teaching. It was at this point that he waved good-bye to his teaching job while he got a regular gig at Philly’s Comedy Cabaret.
What Jay loves about stand-up –“It’s like the monkey tapping the pellet machine,” says Black about stand-up comedy. “There is nothing more creative in this world than stand-up.” Jay equals what he does to being an addict. “Once you hit the stage everything changes. It’s like the real world is in black and white and the stage is in color.” Having audience members react to his jokes is also part of the rush he feels while onstage. “Getting the laugh is among the greatest feelings in the world,” Black said. He added that getting a paid audience to laugh until they cry “is indescribable.”
Joe Conte has been able to take experiences as a chubby, attention-seeking, oldest of 3 chldren, growing up in a first-generation household and m
ake is sound like he actually had fun. His humor is operational and largely based in pop culture, with jokes ranging from riffs on “Jersey Shore” to commentary on Boston accents.
Audiences will hear about his ‘ never good enough to please ” father –a straight from Italy immigrant, and laughed at his father’s mispronunciation of the President of the United States.“Morakema Bamboo,” Conte said. “I was on the floor in tears.” He shares his wit about his narcissistic and always the victim-but sweet- mother Conte saves most of the venom for himself admitting to have “zero confidence.” “I’ve been single most of my life,” he explains. He said the longest relationship he had been in was 18 months. “She ruined it by coming out of her coma.” He is likeable, yet can make you squirm in your seat He is pathetic and hysterical in one package. His high energy grabs you and brings you along his bumpy ride.

Larry DeFelice has performed his unique brand of comedy for clubs, pubs, restaurants, fund raisers, theaters, corporate and organizational events. His clean, high-energy act has been enjoyed by audiences in venues ranging from traditional comedy clubs to church basements to banquet halls. He has been seen in a national television commercial for Circuit City Electronic Stores, as well as sketchwork onNBC’s Late Night with Conan O’Brien show. He has appeared on The New Rascals Comedy Hour and The Wiseguys Show on Sirius/XM Radio.
Impressions of TV and movie characters fill his act, which is also peppered with his life experiences of being “on the cusp”. (Larry’s height of 4’10″ puts him “on the cusp” between “The Normals” and “The Little People”) Think, “The Sopranos meets Fantasy Island”!
Born in Jersey City, NJ, Larry grew up in the NYC Metro area, and while he always enjoyed presenting oral reports and creative writing assignments in school (Geek!), he never thought of pursuing a career on-stage. It wasn’t until years later that he found himself doing impressions of legendary comedians like Dangerfield and Carlin at college parties. Larry frequently entertained co-workers at his retail job with impressions of various managers and customers.
Upon joining a sketch and improv troupe in 1996, Larry decided to pursue comedy professionally and began going back to the new talent shows. He soon was getting his first paid gigs and comedy changed from a hobby to a career.
Eventually, Larry’s friends talked him into attending an open mic night at the old “Main Street Comedy Club” in Hackensack. The response was great and he loved it – resulting in about a year or so of hitting various open mics and new talent shows. Comedy went on-hold for a couple of years as he returned to school and changed careers (from retail to banking). (How practical–Ucch!)
