For a guy from Shreveport, La who has only been doing standup comedy 6 years, Quinton “MUNCHIE” Washington’s career is taking off. His very first performance was April 18, 2012 at the Addison Improv, in Addison, TX where he received a standing ovation. The comedy showcase was put on by Comedian Dean Lewis who was shocked by the fact that it was Munchie's very first time on stage! Ever since then, he has been performing none stop in order to grow at his craft.
In January of 2013, Munchie was accepted in the Black Comedy Competition in Oakland, CA where he went up against veteran comedians. The Director of the competition, Tony Spires, had no idea he had only been doing stand up for 1 year at that time and was quite impressed by the fact that he had even been accepted in the competition alongside headliners.
In the short span of 6 years Munchie has performed for the US troops in Germany twice. The first time he opened for Melanie Comarcho and the second time he went back as the Headliner. He has also been a feature for Joe Torry, Pierre, Bengt Washburn, and Reginald Ballard aka Bruh Man from the hit TV show Martin.
In the latter part of 2016, Munchie won a competition at the Stardome Comedy Club in Birmingham, AL which opened many doors for him. He was hired to host a 4-day gig for the Mia Jackson and Drew Thomas show there on last year as well as featuring for NeNe Leaks from the Real Housewives of Atlanta on her comedy tour. Also, during 2016 Munchie was also selected to compete in Kevin Harts new show “Hart of the City!”
With continued hard work and dedication, Munchie believes his dreams will come true.
Born and raised in Philadelphia by a large extended family, Jaye found his funny early and was often the comic relief among a household filled with his sister and cousins. This skill would help him immensely after moving to the South as a teenager and needing to make new friends in an unfamiliar environment. He would excel in Speech & Drama class and
own the star role in several plays over the next few years.
After graduating, Jaye joined the Marine Corps where he would get his first exposure to standup during a talent show on base. Taking second place was not nearly as significant as the passion he found from telling his stories onstage. He would spend nearly three years honing his craft but upon leaving the Marine Corps found it difficult to balance civilian life with his passion.
In 2013, fifteen years removed from the stage, Jaye decided to finally get back to pursuing his love for standup. Armed with a bevy of life experience and knowledge, his approach to comedy is simply the life of the everyday dude. He shares his views on relationships/marriage, fatherhood, corporate life and living as a Black man in America with a sly candor and unfiltered wit.
