Jesse Egan started doing stand-up comedy after a summer road trip took him from his hometown of Arlington, Virginia to the west coast. He was named part of the Best of San Diego at The Comedy Store in La Jolla California and in 2014 Jesse won first place in the San Diego’s Funniest Person Contest.
Jesse is the current host of Tonight in San Diego, San Diego’s very own late night variety talk show. TISD tapes live on Mondays 7:30pm at The Geoffrey Theatre at Spreckles, at 923 1st ave in downtown San Diego, and airs Saturdays at 11pm on CW6 San Diego TV and locally Thursdays at 10pm on KSDY channel 50. You can see Jesse’s nationally televised spots on KPBS TV and he’s also appeared on Union Tribune TV, Fox Rox TV, and in the documentary film Stage Time.
Jesse performs stand-up comedy all over the country and has opened for Dane Cook, Doug Stanhope, Chris D’Elia, Brian Posehn and toured with Nick at Nite’s America’s Funniest Mom, Vicki Barbolak. Jesse co-hosts two podcasts, Comics Talk Comedy, with comedian Jeff Bilodeau, and Sordid Tales, with San Diego columnist Edwin Decker.
