Incomparable. Unpredictable. Tour de force. Adele's Understudy. Jayson Acevedo can provide an intimate and hilarious comedy entertainment experience like no other. Jayson has performed in many places for many people throughout the country and beyond (5 COUNTRIES, 2 LANGUAGES) for just about anything you can think of: birthdays, baby showers, weddings, anniversaries, and corporate events for both small and large companies. Any show can be specifically geared or catered to a specific person, event or holiday. *JAYSON WAS MOST RECENTLY INVITED TO THE 10TH ANNUAL BURBANK COMEDY FESTIVAL IN LOS ANGELES/BURBANK, CALIFORNIA AND WAS AWARDED BEST OF THE FEST WHEN WAS GIVEN TOP SCORES BY BOTH AUDIENCE AND INDUSTRY DURING THE FESTIVAL!* Jayson offers a traditional stand up comedy option that are just some of his best jokes, bits and stories (some of which can be heard on popular comedy stages throughout Chicago such as Laugh Factory, Zanies, & The Second City to name a few). He also is a musical improviser/comedian meaning he can come up with songs on the spot using anything or nothing at all (as long as he's fed); suggestions are always welcomed and shows/songs can be even be geared towards specific people, events or holidays as well. He also has a great head of hair that can be played with (for an extra charge of course; tips encouraged) Follow @jaysonavocado everywhere (except home...maybe) or visit jaysonavocado dot com to view Jayson's first comedy special, "Lonely Wit". PROFESSIONAL BIO At just the young age of 21, Chicago born, raised & based Jayson Acevedo performed in six English-speaking stand-up comedy showcases in Paris, France as part of his affectionately dubbed "Latino in Paris" Comedy Tour. That same year in August, Acevedo received the opportunity of a lifetime by being invited to perform at the world's largest arts festival, The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland. Now in his late 20s, Acevedo has yet to clean his room. Acevedo continues to perform regularly throughout the city of Chicago at notable venues such as The World-Famous Laugh Factory, Zanies, Second City, The Comedy Bar, The Revival, House of Blues, UP Comedy Club, his nephews house, and more. Beyond Chicago, Acevedo has performed at notable comedy clubs such as The IceHouse (Pasadena), HaHa Comedy Club (LA), The Velveeta Room (Austin) & Harvey’s Comedy Club (Portland) as well as many comedy festivals from LA to New York, in between & beyond, most recently as part of the 2022 Lucille Ball Comedy Festival (with Kevin Nealon, David Spade, Rob Schneider, & Margaret Cho) and most notably at The 2017 & 2018 NBCUniversal/Second City BreakOut Comedy Festival (Chicago), Edinburgh Fringe (Scotland), 6th Borough Comedy Festival (NY/NJ), The NoHo Comedy Festival (LA) & Altercation Comedy Fest (Austin, TX) among many others. In addition, he has also opened & shared the stage with notable comics such as... Tim Meadows (Saturday Night Live) Chris Redd (Saturday Night Live) Jeff Ross (Comedy Central Roasts, Bumping Mics) Hari Kondabolu (NPR/Totally Biased w/ W. Kamau Bell) George Perez (Joe Rogan Experience, Showtime) Ian Edwards (Comedy Central "The New Negroes") Nick Guerra (NBC’s Tonight Show, Dry Bar Comedy) Godfrey (Comedy Central/Showtime) Steve Rannazzisi (FX's The League) Reno Collier (Blue Collar Comedy Tour) Acevedo finally filmed his very first unique comedy special "Lonely Wit" in 2018 in front of an oversold hometown crowd & self-released the hour-long improvised musical stand-up comedy experience on his very own website, jaysonavocado dot com Acevedo's comedy has proven to translate well around the world, having told jokes in 4 different countries and two different languages (France, Scotland, Colombia, & Mexico). In 2019, Acevedo was chosen to proudly represent the city of Chicago in Mexico City as part of the 2019 Year of Chicago Theatre by "Choose Chicago," the official destination marketing organization for the city in direct partnership with the legendary Second City. Today, Acevedo can be heard claiming he's better at being Adele than Adele. @jaysonavocado is on everything… jaysonavocado dot com

Baby ShowerReviewed on May 14, 2022From Rockford, IL

I was blown away with the show that Jayson was able to put on, and improvised and musical. What a gem. The audience had so much fun having him incorporate them in the songs and people were talking about it and having call backs to songs he improvised. Honestly he under charged. It was something you would pay to see in a professional theater in our home. Book him before he's famous and you can't afford to! And since it's an improv format you can book him for all sorts of events - Holiday parties, birthdays, baby showers, Bar Mitzmah's.

Jayson "Avocado" Acevedo:

Thank you so so much! This was such a generous and beautiful review! I'm absolutely floored! I had such an absolute blast and congratulations again on the new addition to your family! Hopefully we can work together again soon!

Private PartyReviewed on October 28, 2023From La Porte, IN

I hired him last year for the FOP75 Comedy Show in Michigan City and he killed it…leading to his hire for this Halloween Bash and he didn’t disappoint! Jayson’s the man, and I’ll continue to hire & refer him and The Bash for great comedic needs! https://youtu.be/6LJiIeRafUo?si=H9TNtayxz6WSzg0S

Jayson "Avocado" Acevedo:

Royce! You are the MAN! Thank you so much for yet another wonderful event and for always introducing me to new fans! So much fun, hospitable, kind and attentive to not just my needs but the needs and wants of your guests. Truly a remarkable time! I look forward to working with you and your peeps yet again soon! Thanks!

Club EventReviewed on November 19, 2022From La Porte, IN

This guy is Great! We (FOP75) had 3 comedians that night and Avocado was the best! We will certainly have him again and he needs to raise his rates...comedic genius!

Jayson "Avocado" Acevedo:

Thank you so so much to both FOP75 & Mr. Williams for an incredibly hospitable staff and such a lively crowd and atmosphere. This being my very first Bash event, I could not have asked for a better first show! Such an amazing night and I had such a blast. I really do look forward to hopefully coming back soon! Thank you so much again!
