Strangers laugh at him. Whether it's a crowd of 40, 400, or 4000, Jared is making audiences laugh up and down the east coast and beyond. His mild-mannered style and sardonic observations are the cornerstones of his act. One audience member commented that Jared has, "that inside out sense of humor with just enough intelligence to be dangerous--I love that." Some call his comedy "cerebral", others "intestinal", and still others attribute it to an overactive thyroid. Interesting note: an anagram for his name is Darn Jester ... coincidence? Probably. Jared has worked with national headliners Jeff Ross, Louis CK, Richard Lewis, Bobby Slayton, Judah Friedlander, Gary Valentine, Todd Barry, Tony Woods, Mike Birbiglia, and Brett Leake.
