Jeremy Hotz is one of those comics you just know is gonna make it big. The Gemini Award-winning star of The Newsroom has been living in L.A. for the past seven years and has scored a handful of development deals from studios like Disney and CBS. If you've never seen his hilarious stand-up act - he's known for huddling close to the microphone, one hand covering his face as he lets out whine after complaining whine - don't miss his headlining gig this Saturday (October 23). Hotz heads up a strong Just For Laughs Comedy Tour lineup that includes Russell Peters, the Doo Wops and Adam Bloom. See Comedy Listings, this page, for details.
If stand-up comics could decide the U.S. election, who would win? George Washington.
What would the deciding issue be? Money talks.
There are no women on the Just For Laughs tour. Why not? Actually, Russell is a hermaphrodite.
Does that make the tour less exciting? Not for Russell.
You cover your mouth a lot during your act. Why? Cuz I'm lip-synching.
What does "development deal" really mean? I'm finally good enough to have some 20-year-old executive handle my career.
What's your biggest grooming challenge: eyebrow hair, nose hair or back hair? Trying to look like I have hair.
What are you going to be for Halloween? A less neurotic Jeremy Hotz.
Where do you keep your Gemini? At the local pawn shop.
If you, Harland Williams and Tom Green got into a wrestling match, who would win? Harland. I'm not that tough, but I'd like to think I can take Tom Green.
