Sam Jay may not be a household name, but she is hoping that will soon be in the past.
The 38 year old comedian and Saturday Night Live writer is on the cusp of being the next big thing when it comes to stand up comedy and her new Netflix special, “3 In the Morning” is a great way for people to get to know her a better.
The special was shot in Atlanta just weeks before the pandemic got underway so Jay, a self proclaimed workaholic is thrilled that a wider audience will now get the chance to see her in action.
Jay filmed the special on Feb. 22 and addresses some of the big issues of the day, but it is less topical since she doesn’t address the virus, the death of George Floyd or any protests.
Still, with a mix of commentary about the realities of being American to bringing audiences into her relationship, nothing is sacred to Jay when it comes to comedy and NO one is spared.
Bonnie Laufer spoke with Sam Jay about her new special, writing for Saturday Night Live and if she feels she has made a difference in the writers room.
Sam Jay: 3 In the Morning is currently streaming on Netflix.
