NEW YORK, May 24, 2016 - If you've ever wanted to "take lessons from a guy who wears a wallet chain still," now's your chance. "Big" Jay Oakerson's first one-hour special "Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall" premieres Friday, June 17 at Midnight ET/PT on Comedy Central.

From the legendary New York City music venue, the man The New York Times called "a master of the dirty joke" dishes on the taboos of growing up with step parents, how to navigate "the friend zone," and why nobody should feel uncomfortable about cringe-worthy material at a comedy show. Big Jay's comedy is raw and honest to the core, with doses of masterful crowd work and storytelling - and plenty of dick jokes.

Leading up to the on-air premiere, Comedy Central Stand-Up and cc.com/BigJay will feature preview clips from the special. Clips will also be available in the CC app and the Comedy Central channel on Snapchat Discover. Fans can follow Big Jay on Twitter at @BigJayOakerson and Comedy Central Stand-Up at @ccstandup, and tweet using the hashtag #LiveAtWebsterHall to join the social conversation around the special.

"Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall" will also be available on Saturday, June 18 on cc.com and in the Comedy Central App. The extended and uncensored version will be available for digital download on Tuesday, June 21, with the album also to be released on that date by Comedy Central Records. The special and album are both available for pre-order on June 7.

"Big Jay Oakerson: Live at Webster Hall" is executive produced by Oakerson, Cris Italia, David Kimowitz and Tony Hernandez. Christian McLaughlin and Miro Terrell are the Executives in Charge of Production for Comedy Central.

Philadelphia born-and-raised Jay Oakerson has risen through the ranks of New York City comedy to become a true master at the comedic arts of storytelling and crowd work.
