Actor, Comedian, LGBTQ Advocate

Jordan Doww is an actor, comedian, writer, producer, and YouTube personality. Originally from Detroit, Michigan, Doww moved to Los Angeles in August of 2014 to pursue his dreams of making a name for himself in the entertainment industry; specifically acting, improv work, and theatre. During the hustle, Jordan found YouTube, a platform that allowed him to writer, direct, and act in his very own content. On Jordan’s YouTube channel, he features personalized lifestyle content, miniature comedic and dramatic skits/parodies, and one of his audience’s favorites; his candid weekly vlogs. Doww’s impeccable work on YouTube has leaded him to being named Daily Dot and AOL’s “YouTube Personality to Watch in 2016.” While being on the computer screen has always been a hobby of Jordan’s, in 2016 he followed his dreams of brining his comedy to the stage for his fans to watch in real life. In February 2016, Doww debuted his comedy show “HollyWEIRD,” which was written, directed and headlined by him at the famous Hollywood Improv; home to a vast majority of comedy’s biggest names including Liza Minnelli and Bill Cosby. “HollyWEIRD” brings the audience behind the scenes of the life of a young and up and coming actor in Hollywood. From his crazy adventures, to mixed emotions, the audience is able to expect comedic sketch, character work, song & dance, and improv. Following the show’s debut, Jordan was eager to bring it to more locations, specifically his hometown Michigan, where he sold out two shows where it all started for him, Go! Comedy. If you thought the flight ended there, Doww then brought his show to Broadway— In May of 2016, “HollyWEIRD” made its debut appearance at one of comedy’s most storied venues, Caroline’s on Broadway. Most recently, Doww was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in the category “Choice Comedian” alongside Jimmy Fallon, Ellen DeGeneres, Aziz Ansari, Kevin Hart, and James Corden. Despite Jordan’s busy schedule, he makes it a point to be an active voice in the LGBTQ community. Doww has previously worked with LOGO TV on Pride Month, The Trevor Project, DoSomething.Org and Jennifer Siebel Newsom of the Representation Project.
