At 19, Jeremiah landed his first job in the industry as an on-air personality at a local Kansas City radio station. A year later, he moved to LA to pursue his dream of becoming a cast member on Saturday Night Live. Since then, he has established himself as one of the most physical stand-up comedians in Los Angeles with his high energy and off-the-cuff style. He performs regularly at The Comedy Store, The Improv, The Laugh Factory and more. His show Stand-Up On The Spot was named 1 of "5 Funniest Nights in America" by GQ, and he recently placed 2nd in the Big Sky Comedy Festival. Watkins has also performed at Just For Laughs in Montreal, Comedy Central's New York Comedy Festival, South by Southwest, and Riot LA. You've seen him on Jimmy Kimmel Live, on VH1 with his comedic dance skills, and he can be seen starring in the the film i-Lived (available on HULU) and the upcoming film Betting On Baker in 2016.

As a kid, I always liked comedy and would listen to albums by George Carlin, Bob Newhart, Bill Cosby, and Lenny Bruce. Despite my enjoyment of these great talents, I decided to pursue an unfunny career and left Los Angeles for San Francisco State College to be a lawyer. When that did not hold my attention, I switched majors and ended up getting a Bachelor of. Art Degree in Communications.
