Jay Davis is an actor, comedian and comedy promoter/producer who garnered nationwide attention after appearing in Dane Cook's Tourgasm, a 30-day cross-country-tour-turned-reality-show which also included Cook, Gary Gulman and Robert Kelly, and was given an 8-episode run on HBO. Davis began performing comedy at an early age, and went to Los Angeles to pursue a career in entertainment. After some film and television roles, he began hosting shows and doing a regular stand-up routine at Dublin's, an Irish pub formerly in Hollywood. It was there that he met Cook, when the comedian came in to join the recurring lineup. When the venue closed, Davis toured solo for a while. Dubbed as "the nice guy," during the TV series, Davis was given an occasional hard time by his friends.

I am from La Verne CA and I was born and raised in America but I am 100% Jordanian that means middles east or "terrorist" to the TSA. Even though I look like a fat really white, white guy. I love making funny YouTube videos with friends and making people laugh. And I have a huge heart mostly for animals and especially dogs. And I'm a little stereo typical. By that I mean I sometimes build my own bombs, but for paintball and airsoft not to blow people up. And I love cooking but mostly for the end result of cooking, eating! I have always loved making people laugh and acting a fool at myself like poking fun at my weight and my way with the ladies but I never try to take things too seriously because where´s the fun in that?
