Proudly openly gay for the length of his career, comedian Jason Stuart was the first openly gay male comedian to have his own hour comedy special: “Making it to the Middle.” It was taped in the middle of his career, the middle of the country and the middle of his life, and will air again from Here Media for its 10th year anniversary on Dec. 7, on Here TV on cable and streaming services.
The 2018 winner of The Joshua Tree International Improv/Comedy Festival as Best Comedian commented on the changes in the last decade.
“10 years ago we did not have gay marriage, my favorite film was ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ and Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown finally split up! Now we have gay marriage — but I still have no husband — ‘Can You Ever Forgive Me?’ is my favorite film and Barbra Streisand cries while singing ‘Happy Days Are Here Again’ on her new CD. A lot has changed, for the world and for me.”
Jason was lauded for his role as a racist plantation owner in “The Birth of a Nation.” He then was cast in several projects and continues working as an out stand-up comedian.
Next up for him is supporting roles in the action film “Abducted” as a police detective and as a private investigator in the thriller “Immortal,” with Samm Levine of “Inglourious Basterds” and Dylan Baker of “Homeland.” Jason was last seen on Judd Apatow’s Netflix series “Love,” and on “Swedish Dicks” opposite Keanu Reeves. Currently, he’s on the Direct TV series “ATT/Hello” and as an anti-abortion leader in the movie “The Line” from executive producer Common. He is also the title character in the drama “Hank,” which won best LGBTQ short film in The Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
