Jaye McBride

Jaye McBride is an upstate New York comedian who's been featured all across the capital district as well as New York City, Vegas and LA. She's worked with comedy greats like Aziz Ansari, Gilbert Gottfried, Bobcat Goldthwait and many others. She's also appeared in the Boston Comedy festival, Maine Comedy Festival and She Devil comedy festival. In addition to stand-up, Jaye has written, produced and acted in a variety of short films. When not performing on-stage or on-screen Jaye writes "The Comedy Blog" for the Albany's Times Union and speaks at colleges all across the country with her lecture about being transgender called "Trans 102: the Chamber of Secrets".

Having transitioned in 2007, Jaye is uniquely qualified to talk about awkward first dates, strained family relationships and self-acceptance. Make no mistake though, Jaye McBride is not a gimmick or one-trick pony. Being transgender doesn't just make her a great target at roasts; it has also given her a uniquely dark and dry sense of humor that will leave you laughing when you know you really shouldn't'. She is one genuinely funny lady!
