Jared Freid is a New York City based comedian. Originally from Needham, Massachusetts, Jared ventured away from the Boston suburb to rural Pennsylvania and attended Pennsylvania State University. While attending the school, Jared quickly became the "Tailgate Czar" of his fraternity. A passed down designation to run his house's weekly tailgate. It was at that position where he grew a once modest event into a school wide phenomena. After graduation, Jared hung up his Elvis wig (nobody knows why the tailgate czar wore an Elvis wig) and entered the world of finance. It became clear that selling life insurance and annuities wasn't Jared's passion. Instead, he spent most of his days writing emails about nothing to friends and submitting some short form essays around the Internet. Four years after starting in the financial world, Jared broke the news to his parents that he'd be leaving to become a full time comedian. Once he revived his mom, Jared made his way into the New York comedy scene. Since then, Jared has been featured on TruTV, MTV, NFL Network, AXS TV, and The Today Show. He's known to a cult following as "JTrain" thanks to his viral videos and weekly columns he's written for BroBible, HeTexted, FlockU, TotalFratMove, and BetchesLuvThis. In addition to all of the TV appearances, columns, and viral videos, Jared hosts "The JTrain Podcast," which is consistently in the top 100 of the iTunes comedy charts. You can find all of Jared's work at his website JTrainComedy.com.
