Comedy Dynamics has announced that they’re releasing T.J: January 3rd through their hybrid distribution system composed of Comcast, Amazon Prime Video, Spectrum, Apple TV, Dish, Google Play, DirecTV, Vimeo, YouTube and many more on November 3, 2020.
In his debut special taped in Brooklyn, Haitian born stand-up comedian, TJ, tackles with his conversational style the perils of English as a third language, evil children, race, and the #metoo movement. No subject is off limits in this smart, edgy, and, most of all, hilarious debut.
TJ is a standup comedian, writer, actor born and raised in Haiti who currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. He moved to the US in 2008, learned the language, and decided to perform standup in 2012. He’s since made appearances on Gotham Comedy Live on AXS TV, FOX and has written for the New York Times. He’s been featured at SF Sketchfest, the Eugene Mirman Comedy Festival, the Laughing Skull Comedy Festival, and the Boston Comedy Festival. He performs regularly in the best comedy clubs and alt shows in New York City. TJ has a very laid back, smooth, and conversational style on stage. He jokes about race, society’s idiosyncrasies, and the inherent contrast between life in Haiti and America. Some people say his humor is smart and eye-opening, he would probably agree with these people.
“I’m unbelievably excited about this. When I moved to America in 2008, I barely knew what standup comedy was. It almost immediately became my favorite thing in the world and, in 2012, I decided to pursue it as my dream. It’s simply an honor to be able to call myself a practitioner of this craft among so many talented people who came before me. I love standup comedy more than anything, and I can’t wait to share my first hour with the public.” said T.J.
“TJ is a smart, funny comic with great delivery and an obvious passion for comedy. We’re excited to release his special,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, Founder and CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
