Joke of the Week: Give Him a Hand

Jared was a finalist in the 2017 Vermont's Funniest Comedian competition, a finalist for the 2017 Seven Daysies Best Standup Comic award, and a finalist in the Killington Snowplow Comedy Competition. You know what they say: Always a bridesmaid, never the winner of a comedy competition.

See Him Live
Jared Hall performs on Saturday, November 4, at deMena's in Montpelier.
