THE CHICAGO IMPROV WELCOMES JAMIE KENNEDY FROM “TREMORS 6” & “SURVIVING COMPTON” APRIL 27th – 29th

Jamie Kennedy at Chicago ImprovSchaumburg, IL (April 10, 2017) – Actor, producer and comedian Jamie Kennedy’s recent work includes starring roles in the latest installment of the “Tremors” film franchise for Universal, Chris Carter’s (The X-files) Amazon drama pilot “The After” and NBC’s medical dramedy, “Heartbeat.” He is also voicing multiple characters on the new Comedy Central animated series, “Legends Of Chamberlain Heights,” and portrayed legendary music manager Jerry Heller in the Lifetime movie “Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge, & Michel’le.” Jamie can also be seen performing his stand up show around the country.

Jamie landed his big break when he was cast in Baz Luhrman’s Romeo + Juliet alongside Leonardo DiCaprio as a punked-out rival to John Leguizamo. His career soon kicked into high gear as he co-starred in his breakthrough performance as Randy Meeks in Wes Craven’s “Scream” and its follow-up, “Scream 2.” Jamie has worked alongside some of the biggest names in Hollywood like Steve Martin in “Bowfinger” and Greg Kinnear in the Oscar-nominated “As Good As It Gets.”

In 2002, Kennedy created “The Jamie Kennedy Experiment,” which became the WB’s highest-rated show. Kennedy portrayed a number of wacky characters, but the audience’s favorite was Brad Gluckman, the white rapper from Malibu. In 2003, Kennedy brought Brad Gluckman to the hit film, “Malibu’s Most Wanted.”

Along with the films mentioned above Jamie has had memorable roles in fan favorites like “Three Kings” directed by David O. Russell, “Enemy of the State” directed by Tony Scott, “Boiler Room” opposite Vin Diesel and over 190 episodes of television under his belt with networks that include CBS, WB, MTV, Comedy Central, Showtime, NBC, Fox and VH1.
