After all, how inappropriate is it to laugh at a foster child who jumped around from one dysfunctional family to another? Sit in the audience of one of Monroe’s performances and you’ll find yourself laughing at his adversity. Monroe’s honest and open approach to joke and storytelling universalizes his experiences.

Monroe’s creative and charismatic comedic voice has created a buzz within the New York comedy circuit. His intelligent and hysterical perspective resonates and has earned him respect among his peers.

Monroe is on his way to becoming the type of comedian he admires—one who says exactly what he wants, the way he wants to say it.

It is especially hard to discuss the topics that are considered taboo and/or controversial. By saying what he wants, how he wants, Monroe is creating his legacy of being one of the funniest comedians in America.

I failed to advance to the national bee in Washington D.C. because of the complexity of the word roothless, which I still spell with two o’s.

Jay has been a guest on WTF with Marc Maron and “The Artie Lange Show.” He is a fan favorite on “Ron & Fez” on Sirius XM and his own podcast “Legion of Skanks” is available on itunes.
