Eljaye is one of the fastest rising comedians in America. His comedy career started at a very young age. Being class clown was both a blessing and a curse. Classmates loved him, teachers were annoyed by him, but good grades kept him out of any real trouble. As an adult, to hone his comedy skills, he enrolled at the world famous Second City in his home town of Chicago. Then, upon relocating to Los Angeles, he decided to take a stand up comedy class to improve his writing. Call it a “calling” or just a need to be the center of attention, but after his first 3 minutes of stand up, not only was the audience hooked, but so was he. Now, he’s a regular fixture at all the major clubs, not to mention every bowling alley, bar and coffee shop from here to Rancho Cucamonga.  From the moment he steps on stage, he commands the audience’s full and undivided attention. Built like a brick “you know what” house, he looks like he belongs more in an MMA ring than on a comedy stage. With the grace and precision of a dancer, every move is poetry in motion. Combine this with his razor sharp wit and rapid fire delivery, it’s no wonder why he is known as the ‘Raging Bull’ of comedy.
