Jon Jayson is the co-founder and CEO of Comedy Crowd TV, a platform that is opening up the comedy industry to creators from all backgrounds who can prove an audience for their original ideas.
Jon and his two co-founders, Omar Nasir and Peter Wright are all comedy creators themselves. Comedy Crowd was born out of their frustration around how tough it can be to break into the industry.
Since launching in 2018, their “global Crowd” has grown to over 8,000 comedy writers, performers and filmmakers.
Jon is a former EY consultant turned media entrepreneur. He has advised a 3D printing startup in Moscow, is a qualified Chartered Accountant, had a blog post about the Simpsons animated and seen over 4 million times on YouTube, and is a former astrophysicist.
Jon also runs an EY Entrepreneurs network.Tags: Comedy, crowdfunding
