August 17th & 18th
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. In fact, last year, right after his last engagement here, he was scheduled to begin filming for the next Farrelly Brothers movie as yet unnamed.
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. If you watch sports at all, you have undoubtedly seen Jackie's Miller Lite "Men of the Square Table" commercials that have been airing since May 2006. If you haven't stumbled across them yet, you can check out the finished commercials (as well as some really fantastic out-takes) on the website: www.manlaws.com. They shot a total of 18 of these ads and 17 will eventually be aired (alas, one did not make the cut). They feature Burt Reynolds, along with other famous and not-so-famous people and of course - Jackie Flynn! The ads are also prominent in all the sports magazines.
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,
and the critics love his quick wit and excellent stage presence. We know YOU are gonna love this one-man show stopper too! Don't miss the dynamic comedy of Jackie Flynn this week at the Ann Arbor Comedy Showcase.
