HateSong: Big Jay Oakerson on the toothy reason he hates “Kiss From A Rose”
In HateSong, we ask our favorite musicians, writers, comedians, actors, and so forth to expound on the one song they hate most in the world.
The hater: An incredibly personal and mostly sweatshirt and fingerless-glove-clad comedian who’s appeared in everything from Louie to Inside Amy Schumer, Big Jay Oakerson gets around. He’s made appearances on Tough Crowd With Colin Quinn, This Is Not Happening with Ari Shaffir, and P. Diddy’s Bad Boys Of Comedy. He also has not one but two podcasts: Legion Of Skanks with Luis J. Gomez and Dave Smith, and The SDR Show with Ralph Sutton. While he’s popped up on several Comedy Central stand-up showcases, he’ll debut his first one-hour stand-up special, Big Jay Oakerson: Live At Webster Hall, on the network this Friday, June 17.
