Weirdo. Friend. Humble comedic genius.
Jordan Temple is a New York City born, New York City based multihyphenate comedian-playwright-writer-standup-actor who grew up in the projects peeing in the staircase and also the elevator.
In 2017 he was a writer for the Golden Globe nominated Showtime comedy “Smilf”, and most recently was a writer for the late night comedy news program, "The Rundown with Robin Thede" on BET in 2018.
In 2018, Jordan also made his late-night stand up debut on CONAN.
Jordan is the mastermind behind the original comedic play, ‘Hidden Fences’, a hilarious, absurdist take on the viral mistake made at the Golden Globes and Academy Awards that combined the movies, Hidden Figures and Fences into 'Hidden Fences'. The play sold out four times and was staged at The Bell House for New York Comedy Festival. In June 2018 Hidden Fences made it's L.A. debut at The Dynasty Typewriter at Hayworth Theatre, starring and produced by Jermaine Fowler. In addition to writing the play, Jordan also plays an unhinged, comedic version of the Denzel Washington role, ‘Troy’. In October of 2017, Jordan staged his follow up to Hidden Fences, an absurdist, one-act play entitled ‘The Color Urkel’ that loosely combines the narrative of The Color Purple with the characters Steve Urkel and Stefon Urquelle.
Jordan can be seen performing regularly around the city, and at Lucky Jacks every Wednesday at 9 p.m. in the Lower East Side, where he co-hosts the stand up show, "Too Many Cooks".
He resides in his hometown of Queens with his girlfriend and deaf cat Motley. Queens Get The Money.
