About Don Jamieson:
“He’s a sarcastic, caustic rib-splitter who can wind up any audience and splatter them hysterically” – The Village Voice
Don is currently co-hosting VH1 Classic’s hit heavy metal talk show series, “That Metal Show.” The program is a round-table talk show where legends of rock hang out and discuss their past and current projects in front of a live studio audience full of metal maniacs. Rolling Stone Magazine just dubbed “That Metal Show” one of the 50 Best Reasons to Watch TV!
Amongst his many accomplishments, comedian Don Jamieson’s proudest moment is becoming an “Emmy Award-Winner” for his work on HBO’s “Inside the NFL.” Don and long-time comedy partner, Jim Florentine, lent their brand of humor to the popular sports show; writing, producing and performing sports-themed comedy sketches.
The two have also collaborated on the hidden-camera DVD and Comedy Central web series, “Meet the Creeps” as well as a series of prank call CD’s, “Terrorizing Telemarketers,” which get a lot of airplay on the Howard Stern Radio Show. He is also a joke writer for the country’s best celebrity roaster, Lisa Lampanelli and has lent his voice to MTV2′s “Crank Yankers.”
Don’s stand-up act brings his everyday take on life, the hip, the cool and the tragically sublime into the spotlight. Besides performing at clubs in New York City, Don tears it up at clubs and theatres all over the country. For the last four years, he has been the regular opener for Andrew Dice Clay. His reputation as one of New York City’s top comics was cemented when he was asked to perform live on ABC’s Good Morning America.
Don started his career as one of the young and talented comedy minds at MTV helping to launch the careers of comics like Jon Stewart, Kevin James, Pauly Shore (sorry) and Tom Green, but unbeknownst to many, Don was spending his nights on the local comedy scene developing his own comic style.
Making the transition from comedian to television host isn’t easy for most. Don has hosted his own series, OLN’s “Beach Ambush,” and is currently in production for the SEVENTH season of VH1 Classic’s, “That Metal Show.”
