Best Of 2020

Best Up-And-Coming Comedian: Jaquavious Curry

Jaquavious Curry

Feel free to call him JJ. That's what his friends call him, and after you see his set you'll feel like one, too. His calm, confident demeanor would normally be found in older performers, but Curry has been building veteran-style momentum since moving to Tampa Bay a few years ago. He's now headlining shows throughout the Southeast and making a name for himself in the comedy community. Whether that name is Jaquavious or JJ doesn't really matter; you'll be hearing more of it in the future. —Michael Murillo
