20-12-2012 12:00:00 22-12-2012 12:00:00 America/New_York JAKE JOHANNSEN A native of Iowa, Jake Johannsen spent three years at Iowa State University dabbling in veterinarian science and chemical engineering before moving to San Francisco and trying his hand at comedy. Jake sought to make his comedic mark on the city at a time when San Francisco was fostering the likes of young talents such as Bobcat Goldthwait and Dana Carvey. Jake made his own comedy debut during an open mike night at San Francisco's Cobbs Comedy Club. Four years later, in 1986, he won the 11th Annual San Francisco Stand-Up Comedian Competition. A self-confessed raconteur of weird stories, it's no wonder that Jake is one of David Letterman's favorite comics. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=123487 Gotham Comedy Club Gotham Comedy Club
