After being a stand-out for years in Chicago’s world-famous comedy scene, Jamie recently moved to Los Angeles, where he is already making an impact. Last year, he signed a recording contract with Mint 400 Records, who released his debut album, Tell Me You’re Proud of Me, which debuted at #1 on the Amazon comedy charts. He has been heralded as a “bombastic genius” by Dan Telfer of Comedy Central’s @midnight.Ryan Budds, producer on MTV2’s Ridiculousness, calls Jamie “one of the fastest and funniest comedians and actors I’ve ever worked with.”
A favorite on the festival circuit, Campbell was specially-selected by the sister of the late Andy Kaufman to perform in Chicago’s TBS Just For Laughs Festival. Over the past year, Jamie has appeared at the New Orleans Comedy Arts Festival, Austin’s Out of Bounds Comedy Festival, The Kansas City Improv Festival, The Cleveland Comedy Festival, The Columbus Unscripted Improv Festival, The Big-Little Comedy Festival and more.
In Chicago, where Jamie began his career, he was a regular at Laugh Factory, and founded the stand-up collective 100 Proof Comedy. In 2013, he was named the city’s “Best Stand-Up Comedian” in The Chicago Reader’s annual “Best Of” issue.
One of the nation’s top improv performers, his recent appearance on Jimmy Carrane’s popular Improv Nerd podcast put him in the company of a veritable Who’s Who in the world of comedy, including Bob Odenkirk, Key & Peele, Jeff Garlin, and Broad City. He has taught and performed improv at venues and festivals all over the United States
