Jamie is perhaps best known for creating and starring in his own sketch comedy show ‘The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,’ a television show that can be best described as a combination of Candid Camera meets Saturday Night Live. As a part of the show, he collaborated with Oprah Winfrey on multiple occasions, combining his prank jokes and unwavering wit on her practical joke special. JKX quickly became The WB’s highest-ranking new show, attracting three million viewers each week. Among the wacky characters played by Kennedy, one became across the board an all-time favorite – Brad Gluckman the Malibu rapper.
With approximately 190 episodes of television under his belt – with networks that include CBS, WB, MTV, Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC, Fox, and VH1 – Jamie currently provides his voice for ‘The Cleveland Show’ on Fox and was starring as psychology professor Eli James in the CBS drama ‘Ghost Whisperer,’ which was Friday’s number one show on television at the time.
Jamie has worked with notable directors Baz Luhrmann, Wes Craven, James L. Brooks, Tony Scott, Frank Oz, David O. Russell, Antoine Fuqua, and Kevin Smith, covering the genres of comedy, drama, animation, reality, horror, action and thriller. Along the way he has also written his own book ‘Wannabe’ and recorded his own record ‘Blowin’ Up.’ Kennedy stands now with the experience of being a part of over 40 films with such industry entities as Dimension, Fox, Universal, Warner Bros., New Line, Sony, and Disney, totaling a gross of over 2 billion dollars in worldwide box-office sales.
Jamie is taking his unique sense of humor into the hosting booth. He is currently hosting the CW's Oh Sit!, a fun, high-stakes, high-octane musical chairs competition, which airs Wednesdays at 8pm.
