About Jacob

Jacob Williams' comedy chronicles his awkward misadventures through the worlds of dating, day jobs and dining alone.

Jacob made his national television debut as a stand-up comedian on NBC's America's Got Talent and advanced to the Semifinals. He has been a cast member on Nick Cannon's Wild 'N Out since 2013 and also performed stand-up on a comedy special for MTV2.

He provided warm-up comedy for two Showtime specials and a show on the Bob and Tom All-Stars Tour, in addition to appearing on the Bob and Tom radio show.

Jacob's comedy has been written about in publications such as Rolling Stone, The New York Post and The Los Angeles Times. Howie Mandel once described him as the "best act of the night" and the director of student life at a recent set of college shows said that Jacob "was amazing with each show and earned each standing ovation."

Jacob currently lives in New York City where he performs regularly when he is not on tour at comedy clubs and colleges across America.
