Jameson P. Murray is a joyful writer, actor, and comedian. A proud New Orleans native, Murray trained at New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA), Comedy Uprising, and abroad at the London Academy of Music & Dramatic Arts (LAMDA). In 2023, he received his BFA from Boston University.
Murray works as a filmmaker, writing for podcasts and creating his own series, including comedy productions like “Fairy God Brothers” and “Going Down”, a weekly sketch show where he was a performer and head writer.
Murray got his on-screen start by making film/tv appearances in Kindred (FX), The Crossover (Disney+), Big George Foreman (Sony), and Good Burger 2 (Paramount). Since, he landed a lead role in short film “Late to the Party,” which was an official selection at the 2023 Atlanta, New Orleans, and Georgia Film Festivals.
Writing a script that mirrors so much of my own experience with moving from one phase to another in life, mine was from staying on a friend's couch just after graduating college, while Reggie's is a break-up. Regardless of whether it was a victory or defeat, we both ended up on someone else's couch and still had to overcome challenges with doing so and trying to pursue romantic love, self-love, and wanting to be loved by everyone.
I want this script to reach anyone who has had a tough period in their life like Reggie to find some comfort in knowing they are not alone. Because if you're a Reggie, in any way, it's easy to feel alone. Just get you some friends like Ian or Keke (arguably).
