SPOKEN WORD: Comedy
Born and raised in New York City, J-L Cauvin has a few unique things about him. Most noticeable is that he is six-foot-seven. Less noticeable, but more unique is that he is half-Irish and half-Haitian, making him a cross of Riverdance and the Fugees, although he looks more like a cross between Adam Sandler and The Rock. He is also a graduate of Georgetown University Law Center, which makes his family proud and sounds good in conversations.
J-L has been entertaining classmates since sixth grade when he first developed his Jean-Claude Van Damme impersonation (another man with a French name and marginal talent). However, his first public appearance was not until his high school talent show his senior year where he performed impersonations of several teachers and students.
Throughout his undergraduate years at Williams College he became known for two things: the big guy at the end of the basketball team bench and the guy who did all the impersonations of professors and coaches. Perhaps if he had played more he would have had less time to ponder the voice inflections of his coaches, but then the world would have been denied the first 4 year college basketball player to have more career impersonations than career rebounds. However, Williamstown, Massachusetts (pop. 8,000) did not provide the greatest avenue for comedy stardom. Law school would be another story.
After going to Georgetown University Law Center, J-L often wondered, "What is the difference between a law center and a law school?" He then realized that law centers suck more. To cope with the stress of law school, J-L discovered the local DC comedy scene. He then became known as the big guy at the end of the bar that did lots of impressions.
Then a benchmark came in J-L''s comedy career: he entered the D.C. Improv''s "Funniest College" competition, despite only being a student at a law center and not a college. Carrying the banner of Georgetown into the competition, he took first place and quickly went on a victory tour of open mics at bars, which continues to this day.
Since his victory in 2004, J-L has gone on to make the semi-finals of the 2005 Boston Comedy Festival, was named the runner up for the 2006 Belly Laughs Competition in NYC and was made a 2006 DC Comedy Fest participant. J-L also recorded his debut CD "Racial Chameleon" in April of 2006. All these accolades have made J-L Cauvin a household name in his apartment building in Bronx, NY. So, come out to a club, bar or shelter near you to see what J-L''s mother has called "funny." Check out J-L. He''ll be the tall guy.
