    Helium Presents: 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 Franciscos 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, its no wonder that Jake is one of David Lettermans favorite comics. With 46 Letterman appearances under his belt (not to mention a handful of Late Night with Conan OBrien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and Politically Incorrect gigs), Jake is no stranger to late night television. His late night appearances gave Jake the exposure he needed to land his very own HBO comedy special, Thisll Take About An Hour. Jake received incredible reviews, strong ratings, and a Cable Ace Award nomination for Best Writing in an Entertainment Special. People Magazine rated the special as one of the ten best television shows of the year, and TV Guide named it one of the 50 Funniest Moments of TV. Jake is also making his mark on the feature world. Jake appeared on the big screen next to Bruce Willis in the Alan Rudolph film Breakfast of Champions. Jake first worked with Rudolph on the film Mrs. Parker and the Vicious Circle, in which he co-starred in a cast that included Matthew Broderick, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Campbell Scott. Jakes bizarre take on life and his uniquely intelligent style have made him a regular at comedy clubs all over the country and a former host of Comedy Centrals Two Drink Minimum. Jake has had numerous television appearances as well as his own Comedy Central hour special. His latest Comedy Special entitled i Love You is currently airing on Netflix.
