Jake Sharon - 1533

Austin,TX/ Denver

Jake Sharon starts his sets by making fun of his crazy self just long enough to disarm the crowd; and uses that opportunity to sneak in a couple challenging opinions, throws a few curveballs, and tickles a sacred cow or two.
Jake also sometimes busts out a known tradition of his podcast- The Battery Podcast- by finding a positive to any negative the crowd can shout out. He dares you to stump him! Jake can find the bright side to anything! Other times, he just goes off on a wild tangent, but he always brings it back together, and surprises even himself- by the lessons he and the crowd have learned. He also likes hugs!

Jake Sharon is a silly, brain-damaged goofy head. His improv background & years of aggravation fuel his manic outbursts.
Jake's universally enjoyed style has allowed him to work with Jim Jefferies, Brian Regan, Nick Vatterott, Jon Reep, Kyle Kinane, Josh Blue, Chris Porter, Steve McGrew, Ben Kronberg, Shane Mauss, & David Alan Grier. Jake tours colleges & the best clubs across the country, including the Denver Comedy Works, Harvey's, the Improv, etc. Jake was featured in The Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, The Seattle International Comedy Competition, The Rocky Mountain Laugh Off, Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, and twice in the Laugh Your Asheville Off Comedy Festival and three times in the Boston Comedy Festival. His antics have appeared on ESPN, Warner Bros.' Elimidate, and Reader'
