A unique voice in Canadian comedy, Jacob Samuel is part stand-up comic and part humour cartoonist. This is why he has two totally separate bios.
Jacob Samuel is a nice Jewish boy and a very funny stand-up comedian who's appeared on Sirius XM Radio, Shaw TV's Talent Time, and the JFL Northwest and Music Waste festivals. Since 2012, he's hosted one of Vancouver's most popular comedy showcases that was praised by Splitsider.com as "hilarious, smart, and sometimes veers weird." As far as he knows, he's the only Canadian comedian ever to be retweeted by acclaimed American documentary filmmaker Ken Burns.
Jacob Samuel is an internationally-published humour cartoonist and one of the youngest Canadian cartoonists ever to be published in The New Yorker. Jacob has also been published in The Harvard Business Review, Barron's, Geist, The Feathertales Review, Prospect (UK), Wirtschaftswoche (Germany) and on CBC: Comedy. His debut book of single-panel comics was included as one of the "top 25 comedy books of 2012" by Canada's Bite TV and was promoted by Evan Goldberg (co-writer of Superbad, This is the End). Purchasers of Jacob's cartoons include renowned American documentary filmmaker Ken Burns. Jacob is now working on his second book (expected to be released in 2015-2016). On the internet, he makes the webcomic The Daily Snooze. Here's an out-of-context review of it by Donald Trump:
"The Daily Snooze publishes lies about me. They should be ashamed of it but it will die very soon." - @donaldjtrump (December 3 2012 12:13 PM).
