Kansas City, MO, March 10, 2015 — Jamie Campbell – Tell Me You're Proud of Me Tour – April 3, 2015 – 10pm (with improv by The KC Improv Company)
Jamie Campbell has been a stand-out for years in Chicago's world-famous comedy scene. With the release of his debut album, "Tell Me You're Proud of Me" (http://www.amazon.com/Tell-Me-Youre-Proud-Explicit/dp/B00SQLSZWK) – currently #14 on the Amazon comedy charts – he is set to make waves nationally.
He has been heralded as a "bombastic genius" by Dan Telfer of Comedy Central's @midnight. Ryan Budds, producer on MTV2's Ridiculousness calls Jamie "one of the fastest and funniest comedians and actors I've ever worked with."
A favorite on the festival circuit, Campbell was specially-selected by the sister of the late Andy Kaufman to perform in Chicago's TBS Just for Laughs Festival. Over the past year, Jamie has appeared at The Kansas City Improv Festival, the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, Austin's Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, The Cleveland Comedy Festival, The Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival, The Big-Little Comedy Festival, and Gilda's Laughfest.
In Chicago, Jamie is a regular at Laugh Factory, and is a founding member of stand-up collective 100 Proof Comedy. In 2013, he was named Chicago's "Best Stand-Up" in The Chicago Reader's annual Best of Chicago issue. He also hosts the weekly podcast, "Talk Hard", the flagship show on The Rebellion Network. One of the nation's top improv performers, his recent appearance on Jimmy Carrane's popular "Improv Nerd" podcast put him in the company of a veritable "Who's Who" in the world of comedy, including Bob Odenkirk, Key & Peele, Jeff Garlin, and Broad City.
As an actor, Jamie had a stand-out appearance in last year's indie feature "Sex Ain't Love." He has a starring role in the upcoming film, "Dirtbags", from award-winning screenwriter Dale Zawada, and will make his network television debut in NBC's hit series "Chicago Fire" in 2015. You may also recognize him from his appearance in KFC's popular #HowDoYouKFC ad campaign.
Jamie Campbell is a founding member of improv/hiphop juggernaut "Rapture", has been a touring guest performer with "Baby Wants Candy." He is an original member of The Annoyance Theatre's House Ensemble and performs professionally with The ComedySportz Theatre in Chicago, IL. He also co-wrote the musical, "Four Play", which Broadway World named "The Best New Work in Chicago Theatre."
Jamie will also join the cast of Presto, the Musical! by The KC Improv Company, as a special guest!
