Jay London

American comedian

Jay London (born September 12, 1966, in The Bronx) is an American stand-up comic whose one-liner jokes made him a favorite on NBC's second and third seasons of Last Comic Standing. He had a thing for saying "Thank you" after some of his one-liners, depending on crowd reaction. He also acted very self-conscious and would randomly badmouth himself, especially if the crowd was left dumbstruck by a joke and didn't laugh much. It was all part of the act.

  • It all started when my dog received free rollover minutes.

  • I went to a record store and asked for 50 Cent. They kicked me out for pan-handling.
  • I went to the store and bought lady fingers. When I got home I noticed one of the fingers was missing so I went back to the store and the manager was nice enough to give me the finger.
  • I saw a sign that said "Left Lane Closed." So I went someplace else.

  • Am I bothering you, miss?
  • It'll be over soon, miss.

  • Well, I'd like to leave you with a joke.
