Hi! I’m Jason Klamm. If you’ve heard of me, it’s probably because of the Comedy on Vinyl podcast, or because you’ve seen me in LA’s hit show, 7-years-and-counting, A Drinking Game*, or you’ve noticed me as a footnote to an early viral video that was based off of another viral video. Also, Gore Vidal once called me a better interviewer than Ken Burns. He was probably wrong.
I’m a writer, an actor and I edited most of the movies and podcasts I’m involved with. I also am a cartoonist and sculptor. As a writer, my mentors were Fielding Dawson (who once kindly compared my work to Kafka) and Mike Newell, a yin and yang of discord and… cord. Respectively.
I’m a proud graduate of an alternative high school, Upward Bound Alternative High School in Hartwick, New York, as well as Columbia College Chicago.
*I’ve played Vizzini, Rugen, Marty McFly, Hedley Lamarr, Charles DeMar, Michael Bolton, Scott Pilgrim, Shaun from Shaun of the Dead, Garth Algar and more. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of. You should see it.
