Jay Pharoah

Don’t miss Rolling Stone's 55th greatest ever SNL cast member

Stand-up comedian, actor, rapper and impressionist Jay Pharoah spent a huge 6 seasons as a cast member and writer on Saturday Night Live. One of the 10 youngest ever comedians to join the series, during his time on the show he achieved legendary comedic status for his impressions of former President Barack Obama, Family Guy’s Stewie Griffin, Eddie Murphy, Nicolas Cage and Justin Bieber. His hilarious Hotline Bling parody has been viewed tens of millions of times.

With scene-stealing supporting roles in Get A Job alongside Bryan Cranston, Chris Rock’s Top Five, Ride Along with Kevin Hart and Ice Cube and Lola Versus Jay has entered the cinema stratosphere since departing SNL. He’s voiced various roles in Family Guy, BoJack Horseman, Robot Chicken and SuperMansion, but it was Jay’s starring role in Jamie Foxx’s loosely autobiographical vehicle White Famous that launched him into millions of lounge rooms when it aired on Showtime in the US and on Stan in Australia. In 2015, he was honoured by Rolling Stone Magazine as the 55th greatest Saturday Night Live cast member in the history of the long-running show.

While Pharoah’s tenure on Saturday Night Live may be behind him, he hasn’t left the characters that originally made him famous behind. His live show is a hilarious, high-energy pastiche of stories, characters and SNL-level jokes which have carried the comedian all over the world, and with tours of the US, UK and Canada under his belt he is excited to be making his Australian debut this May – don’t miss the master impressionist live on stage!

“Fall-out-of-your-chair funny” – Deadline (US).

“With impressions fans know and love embedded in new, equally energetic stand-up, Pharoah made the packed crowd laugh, stare, and rise to their feet for a standing ovation” Exclaim.ca (US).
