Jackie Flynn has emerged as one of the funniest and most talked about comedians to come out of Boston. Joining the ranks of Steven Wright, Denis Leary , Lenny Clarke and Jay Leno. He has quickly parlayed his success as a stand-up to firmly establish himself in the film and television arena.
Early on in his career, Jackie was discovered on stage in Boston by the Farrelly brothers, who have since cast him in back to back roles in “King Pin”, “There’s Something About Mary”, “Me,Myself And Irene” “Shallow Hal” and “Stuck On You”, where he played opposite pop-diva Cher.
Fans of the hit show “The King Of Queens”, will recognize Jackie from his many appearances on that show, as well as his role along side the likes of Burt Reynolds, NFL Coach Jimmy Johnson and Jerome Bettis as one of the “Men Of The Square Table” in the hugely popular Miller Lite “Man Law” commercials.
He is also one of the proud winners of the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition, as well as a featured performer at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival gala. Recently he was chosen to perform at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen, Colorado produced by HBO.
Jackie is truly a “comic’s comic”, whose refreshingly unique brand of sarcastic observational humor puts him in a class all his own, apart from the many derivative cookie cutter comics plying the airways today.Audiences young and old appreciate his wit and rapid fire “take no prisoners” delivery.
